Step 1

Powder the cashew in a coffee grinder, blender or a dry grinder.

Step 2

The cashews should be in powdered form and not become pasty or oily.

Step 3

On a low flame heat sugar and water in a thick bottomed or non stick pan or kadai.

Step 4

Meanwhile grease a plate or a tray and keep aside or keep butter papers ready.

Step 5

When all the sugar has dissolved in the water, add the cashew powder. There is no consistency in the sugar syrup required like one string or two string. Just let the sugar dissolve in the water and then proceed with the next step.

Step 6

Mix and keep on stirring the cashew mixture non-stop on a low flame.

Step 7

The cashew mixture would start thickening.

Step 8

Cook the kaju mixture for approx 7 to 9 minutes until the whole dough starts to come together.

Step 9

Remove the whole lump of the kaju dough from the pan and place it on your work surface or in a bowl or plate.

Step 10

Add the rose petals and ghee or oil to the cashew mixture.

Step 11

When the heat in the dough is hot enough to handle, then knead the cashew mixture lightly.

Step 12

Flatten the dough and place it on a butter paper or on a greased plate or tray.

Step 13

Place a butter paper on top and then using a rolling pin, roll gently the dough from all sides till you reach a thickness of 3 to 5 mm in the dough.

Step 14

Remove the butter paper and let the rolled dough cool.

Step 15

When completely cooled, using a sharp knife cut the cashew dough giving square or diamond shapes.

Step 16

Gently remove the kaju katli with a butter knife.

Step 17

Serve the kaju katli straight away or keep in an airtight container.
