5. Grease a plate with ghee and pour this mixture, spread it evenly in thin layer, you can use rolling pin and roll it too, allow it to cool for 2-3 minutes.  Now spread the sliver warq, press the warq with the butter paper so it’s stick to the katlis well.

  Cut in desire shape with cookie cutter or in square/diamond shape and once completely cooled, store the pieces in air tight box if anything left to store !  You can keep this in fridge up to a week.

Our badam katli is ready.  Don’t worry about the sliver varq not properly applied on each pieces that’s fine, we are not looking for shop like katli/sweet here, the little un-perfect things only makes this home made katli or any sweet so perfect and homely.  I just feel this way, you doesn’t have to think same!

~ You can blanch almonds and grind it along with 2-3tbsp of milk and then make the katli, follow the same step other than adding the milk part.

~ If while spread the mixture you think it’s too dry add 1-2 tbsp of milk and knead it to make a smooth dough.  Be careful while doing this as it will be very hot.

~ I used blanched almond flour and with skin almond flour so the colour it’s little brown, if you use blanched almonds paste or flour it will be in lighter in colour than this.

~ Adjust sugar to your taste, you can use 3/4 cup or 1cup sugar too. Generally badam katli, kaju katlis are not very sweet but just mild. 

Enjoy the festive and the katli too.
