Strawberry Kaju Katli

Strawberry Kaju Katli... Sure a lot of us have loved Kaju Katli as a sweet, and gorged on it like crazy. I was one of those kids. But every tried strawberry flavoured one? Me neither. Found this wonderful recipe and I had made Strawberry Jam a while ago, I wanted to make this. As it struck me immediately even though we are not a big fan of sweets, still I decided to go with preparing this delicious sweet.

When I read this recipe, I was not sure what this is going to become. But it came out absolutely delicious !! I used Strawberry Jam in this recipe.


Strawberry Jam: 1/2 cup (or use hulled strawberries made into puree with sugar)
Cashew powder: 1 cup
Silver foil (optional) I did not use in this recipe
Ghee as required.

  1. Grease a plate and a rolling pin. Keep aside.
  2. Heat the strawberry jam in the pan for 4-5 minutes until it starts becoming thicker. You could also use strawberry puree with sugar if you don't have jam.
  3. Add the powdered cashews to the pan and mix well. Save a bit of the powdered cashews if not using silver foil. Let cook till it completely gets absorbed and forms a dough like paste.
  4. Turn off the heat and transfer to the greased plate. Spread it completely on the plate with the bottom of a small, greased bowl (katori). Then flatten it with the help of the greased rolling pin.
  5. Add the silver foil on the top. If not using silver foil, sprinkle the remaining cashew powder over the mixture. Keep in the refrigerator.
  6. After an hour, take out and cut into rhombus shapes with the help of a knife. Remove pieces carefully and store in fridge. This keeps good for days together.
