I made this the other night when I was looking for something sweet to round off dinner. I followed Saffron Hut's recipe for quick and easy katlis. Though the original recipe was simple and easy enough to begin with, I simplified it even further by eliminating a few steps. The recipe calls for just 2 major ingredients- cashews and sugar- in addition to a little bit of water. I started making this right after dinner and it was ready in less than 10 minutes (cooling time not included).
(For 20-22 small pieces)
1 cup unsalted cashews, powdered
½ cup sugar
¼ cup water
Heat the water and sugar in a heavy-bottomed pan on low heat. Bring the sugar syrup to a boil.
Stir in the cashew powder. Mix well. Cook for 4-5 minutes on medium heat stirring constantly. When the mixture starts to bubble, thicken and pull away from the sides of the pan, it's done.
Line a baking tray with foil and grease well. Pour the mixture onto the tray. Cool for a bit (refrigeration for at least 2 hours is recommended so that it sets nicely) and then cut into squares or diamonds.
