30 ALMOND / BADAM KATLI

Almond / Badam Katli Version 1


Posting a sweet dish for my Son's(Younger One) Birthday today. I have already posted Kaju Katli that I made last year for his Birthday and this year I am posting another sweet with Badam. The step and procedure to make is the same as Kaju/Cashew Katli. Though I make this sweet very often I had not clicked and posted it till now. When I asked him what sweet he wants for the day, he happily replied Diamond sweet as he calls this Katli and I knew this would be his answer.

This version of mine is very simple and so easy as 123 to prepare that no one can go wrong. Best to prepare with silvered almonds or almond powder.


Silvered Almonds/Badam - 1 cup
Sugar - 1 cup
Ghee - 1 tbsp
Water - 2 - 3 tbsp

For rolling:-
Parchment Paper
Rolling Pin


In a pan/kadai dry roast almonds for 3 - 4 minutes without discoloring. Remove and cool completely. Add the sugar in a mixie/blender and run for few seconds till they powder fine. Keep aside. Next add the roasted almonds and powder as fine as possible. Next add the sugar to the same and run the mixie for few more seconds so that they both get mixed well.


Heat the same pan in medium flame. Add the ghee and before it changes its color pour in the powdered ingredients. Keep turning around with a spatula so it gets cooked and a soft dough like paste consistency is formed. If the dry ingredients are still too dry then add few tbsp of water and keep stirring so it does not stick and cook till it leaves out the side. Immediately transfer to a parchment. Place it in the middle and cover into half. Using a rolling pin roll as thin as possible. Open one of the side and with a knife cut into as shape needed. Wait till it cools down a bit and store it. The unshaped ones you can place back in the same pan with a tsp of water and stir again to get a soft paste and follow the same procedure.

Note can add few drops of any flavor/essence like rose or almond to enhance the flavor. Store and enjoy your home made Badam/Katlis.
