KAJU & ALMOND KATHLI

Its my favourite sweet and i go mad on seeing this. When ever i have a chance to get this I never mind about any decency, courtesy or my diet or calorie values. I sure will pick min 3 at a time. I hope u remembered the good story of my Badam Halwa during the Diwali time preparation. I made this time in a slightly different way to avoid the disaster again.

INGREDIENTS
Almonds-1 cup
Cashew nuts – 1 cup
Sugar- 2 cups
Saffron-a few
Milk-1 cup
Ghee-1/2 cup
Cardamom-a pinch

METHOD
Soak almonds and cashews in milk for 1 hr and peel the skin of almonds.Grind both with milk and saffron to a fine thick paste.
In a pan dissolve sugar and make one string stage and add the ground mixture. Keep on stirring continuously. Add little ghee now and then. continue stirring till the mixture becomes thick.
When it starts to leave the sides of the pan and become dough like consistency add remaining ghee and stir well.
Grease a plate with ghee, pour the mixture into it.
Let it Cool for some more minutes and cut into pieces.

Now the delicious mouthwatering, especially my favorite katli is ready….
