About Kaju Katli No-Cook Recipe | Indian Cashew Fudge Recipe

The festival of light is almost here that is Diwali and we are looking forward to it and preparing the food for it. Our guests usually attend most of our parties, so we always make sure they are well-fed, especially when it comes to sweets. And I really want to treat them with this Indian delicacy among sweets that is Kaju Katli and that too with less effort. 

Kaju Katli is a delicious Indian sweet that melts in the mouth with sugar-sweetened cashew nuts. Basically, it is made with sugar syrup with the right consistency but here we will skip the process and will use powdered sugar directly. It is one of the most popular Indian sweets and available in many different flavors.

During Diwali, people like to give and receive Kaju Katli, and although the sweets in the shops are super expensive, it is very easy to make them at home.

Even my sister and friends like the homemade version better than the shop –  After trying this recipe I always make it at home. Here is my recipe for Kaju Katli which I got for Diwali, which I was always supposed to make.

This recipe helps you get a perfect consistency and it is also great to give away at parties or special occasions because there is no better gift than homemade Mithai or sweet. So it will be a great gift for your friends and family, and also a perfect gift to make at your party or special occasion.

Ingredients

To Prepare Kaju Katli or Indian cashew fudge, you just need any simple ingredient which is easily available in your pantry. They are  Roasted cashew nuts, milk powder, powdered sugar, milk, and ghee.

Instead of milk, you can use water too.

  • 250 gms – Cashew roasted and unsalted
  • 1/2 cup – Milk powder or 1 1/2 tbsp cornstarch if vegan
  • 1/2 cup – Powdered sugar or ground raw sugar
  • 1 tsp – Ghee/ Coconut oil if vegan
  • 1 tsp – rosewater/kweda water or 1/2 tsp cardamom powder
  • 3 tbsp – milk (room temperature) or normal water
  • Chandi vark (Silver leaf)
  • vegan butter or ghee for greasing

Kaju Katli No Cook Recipe

I will recommend that you should use the best quality cashew available in the market to get that ultimate taste. Roast the cashews at a low flame and then take them out and keep them aside before grinding in batches.  Once you prepare the Kaju Katlis garnish them with silver vark or leaf and give them the touch of those expensive market-bought sweet.

Traditionally Kaju katli is made using sugar syrup but to save time and effort here we will be using only powdered sugar. You can also make new varieties and try them with chocolate, Kesar, Anjeer, or Pistas and try your favorite version.

If you are looking for something different like sugar-free you can use dates or raw honey too and make them sugar-free and enjoy.

Important Suggestion To Keep In Mind

  • Remember not to grind the cashew too much as cashew will release oil and we do not require that.
  • Always try to use a spice blender to grind this cashew into a fine powder. 
  • Always use ghee to make the mixture smooth so I will strongly recommend it but it’s optional too.
  • Always use butter paper while rolling the cashew dough, it avoids the dough to gets sticky
  • You can use little water instead of milk while kneading the dough.
  • You can use little cardamom powder instead of kweda or rose water whatever is available in your kitchen.

Storage Suggestion 

Kaju Katli can be kept in the fridge for a few days in an airtight container.

If you want to serve, simply take the container out and enjoy it. They will be almost good for 2-3 weeks.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can you eat Kaju katli during fastings?

Yes, you can certainly consume these delicious Kaju katli’s during varts or fasting if obviously, they are homemade as the market ones mithai walla’s who make them using sugar syrup or glucose which contains wheat, rice, etc which are a big no during the vrat or fasting times.

So I will not recommend the market bought during vrat.

Which is tastier with sugar syrup or with powdered sugar?

When I made them without sugar syrup and used powdered sugar and no-cook method trust me they were equally tastier than the market or what can I say they were even tastier than the market even my friends and family have the same opinion.

So, make them once and see yourself the difference and also let me know in the comment section. I will wait eagerly.

How can you make it vegan?

If you want to make a vegan Kaju katli, use coconut oil instead of ghee, but you could freeze the cashews for a few hours before grinding them in a blender to make the nuts leak the oil. Do not add the silver leaf as it’s only for presentation and it does not contribute to taste.

How can you make a healthier version of Kaju katli?

If you want to make a healthier version of Kaju katli, you can replace sugar with sugar-free stevia. Grind the sugar free stevia into a fine powder and then rest follow the same process.
