Kaju Katli or Cashew Nut Cake Recipe

Yields: 12 nos.
Preparation Time: 15 Minutes

Cashew Nut – 1 cup
Sugar – 1 cup
Ghee – 1 1/2 tbsp
Water – 1/2 cup


  1. Grind the cashew nuts.
  2. Boil the sugar with water to make sugar syrup.
  3. Once the syrup reaches the 2 string consistency, reduce to a low flame.
  4. Stir in the ground cashew nut powder.
  5. Add the ghee and keep stirring until it is done.
    (Consistency Checkpoint: The batter is done when it becomes one ball or mass while stirring.)
  6. Spread the batter in a greased plate, in a 5 mm layer and flatten the top to make it an even, smooth surface.
  7. When slightly cool, make diagonal cuts to form one inch long diamonds.
    (Checkpoint: Make the cuts when the batter is not too sticky nor too hard so that the cuts come out smooth with a neat finish.)
  8. Cool and serve.
