For today’s post I have a melt in your mouth Indian dessert that is so simple to make and can be made vegan too. 9 out of 10 times Indian desserts/ sweets have either copious amounts of ghee (clarified butter) or made of milk (a big NO-NO to my husband), so when I saw that Katlis can be made with little or no ghee, I jumped up in joy.
My mom made the katlis with me hovering over her shoulder giving instructions on how and what to do. My mom usually pours the cooked nuts & sugar mixture onto a greased plate and cuts them into squares or diamonds. But these katlis need slightly different treatment: after the nuts and sugar are cooked and start to come away from the pan, cool the mixture for a little bit, then knead it into a smooth and pliable dough, then roll and cut the katlis for a melt in your mouth dessert.
