Kesar Badam katli | Badam katli | Almond flour Katli | Diwali Specials

Kesar Badam Katli is a famous Indian sweet which can be found in most of the famous sweet shops. Katli is a kind of burfi made with nuts powder and sugar syrup. The most commonly seen Katli in all sweet shops is Kaju Katli which is made from cashew nut powder.Kesar Badam Katli is something similar to Kaju Katli and is made from almond powder and as the name said it's flavored with Kesar/Saffron and cardamon. 

I have added natural yellow food coloring to make it look different from kaju Katli, its totally optional. Also i have add some edible golden sheet to looks more festive, again its optional. Kesar Badam Katli tastes amazing without decorations :) I have tried many measurements / ratios of almond flour and sugar, this has worked out best for me. 

I have used store bought almond flour, it is a great short cut to this recipe. If almond flour is not available its easy to make almond flour with whole almonds. 

ALMOND FLOUR : Soak whole almonds for 4 hours. Remove the skin and pat it dry completely. Now in a blender grind the blanched almonds to a powder in very small batches.

Ingredients :

Almond flour - 1 cup 

Sugar - 3/4 cup

Water - 1/2 cup

Ghee - 1 tablespoon 

Saffron - 1 large pinch

Cardamom powder - 1/4 teaspoon 

Natural Yellow food coloring

Procedure : 

Measure all the ingredients keep it ready. Pound saffron to powder

 In a nonstick pan add 3/4 sugar and 1/4 cup water and boil till transparent

Add 1 cup of almond flour and mix well without lumps

Once mixture starts to get thicker add pounded saffron and mix

Once the mixture starts to leave the sides do a check test. Drop some almond mixture in a small cup of cold water 

Try to make a ball shape out of it. You must be able to form a soft ball

Quickly add 1 tbsp of ghee , food coloring and mix well.

Turn off the stove and add 1/4 tsp cardamon powder and mix well

Line a tray with butter paper and pour the mixture to the pan

Decorate with pistachios and edible gold leaves and allow it to cool a bit

While still warm remove katli for pan and trim the edges cut into squares
