Cashew Rose & Chocolate Fudge 'kajoo katli'
Updated: Nov 12, 2020
Diwali treats special 2 of 3! Ok so this is inspired by the super classic Indian sweet Kaju Katli. It is usually made form white sugar and cashews so i thought i would mix it up and try something new for Diwali this year and OMG i could not stop eating these. SUPER fudgey and decadent! In my youtube video i also show how i make these cute treat Diwali gift boxes...(when i make them they potentially look like the 5 year old me made them..but i'm sure you will do a better job haha)!
🥗 I N G R E D I E N T S
1 1/3 cup cashew flour (ground cashews)
1/2 cup coconut sugar or unrefined brown sugar
1/2 tsp cardamom
3 tbsp water
1 tsp rose water (optional)
100g chocolate to melt
chopped pistachios & dried rose petals and i used dried marigolds to top
🌿 T H E M A G I C
Add the coconut sugar, water and rose water into a medium sized pan and heat till the sugar dissolves into syrup.
Sieve the cashew flour into the pan and cook for about 5 minutes on low heat, it should start to thicken
Scoop it out onto greased parchment paper and let it cool on the side for 5 minutes, if you're in a rush pop it in the fridge for 10 minutes then take it out and shape into a block, you can use a greased knife around the sides to create sharp edges
Wrap in the parchment paper to keep shape and place back into the fridge while you melt the chocolate
Use the double boiler technique to melt the chocolate; fill a saucepan half way with water and boil. Place a heatproof bowl on top (make sure the water is not touching the base of the bowl) add the chocolate chips and melt
Take the fudge out of the fridge (check it has set, if not leave in for another 5-10 minutes) and spread a layer of chocolate on top as thick as you want :) Then sprinkle on your toppings, i use rose petals and chopped pistachios
Place into the fridge again and let it chill completely for at least 1 hour!
Take it out of the fridge and cut into pieces, the chocolate may crack a little but if u do it fast and with a sharp knife you minimise the damage haha
Now you can put them into little mini cupcake cases for your gift box like i did or just enjoy them as is :)
♡ Say a little prayer, eat with soooooo much joy and serve with a whole lot of love ! ❤️
