Mithai is not only enjoyed during festivals but many of us also love having them as a snack or a dessert. How about making a sugar-free, healthy version of the much-loved kaju katli. And what more, this one is chocolate kaju katli. Try this simple recipe to delight your kids at snack time!

Ingredients
  • Kaju (Cashews): 1 cup or 160 gms of kaju
  • Jaggery powder: ½ cup or 100 gms
  • Water: 5 tsp
  • Cold pressed coconut oil (optional): 1 tsp
  • Cacao powder: 1 tsp
Method

Making Kaju Katli Mixture

  • Powder the cashew in a coffee grinder or a dry grinder.
  • The cashew should be in powdered form and not become pasty or oily.
  • On a low flame, heat jaggery and water in a thick bottomed or non-stick pan or kadhai.
  • Meanwhile, grease a plate or a tray with cold pressed oil and keep aside or keep butter papers ready.
  • When all the jaggery dissolves in water, add the cashew powder. There is no consistency requirement in the jaggery like one strand thickness etc.
  • Keep stirring the cashew mixture on a low flame.
  • The cashew mixture would start thickening.
  • Sieve the cacao powder and add at this stage
  • Cook the kaju mixture for approx 7-9 min till the whole mixture starts to come together.

Making of Kaju Katli

  • Remove the whole lump of the kaju mixture from the pan and place it on a work surface, bowl or a plate.
  • Add the oil to the mixture.
  • When the mixture is hot enough to handle, then knead the cashew mixture.
  • Flatten the cashew katli dough and place it on a butter paper or on a greased plate or tray.
  • 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 3-5 mm in the dough.
  • Remove the butter paper and let the rolled kaju katli dough cool.
  • When cooled, use a sharp knife and cut the cashew dough giving it a square or diamond shape.
  • Gently remove the katli pieces using the knife.
  • Serve the sweet straight away or store in an airtight container to be served later.

    Eating Guide:

  • Food group: Nuts
  • Best time to eat: As evening snack or after meals. Do not mix with fruit, can be combined with other food groups.
  • Great way to up natural oils and fats for kids.
