CASHEW FUDGE SANDWICH

Lets make a combination of our very own Kaju Katli and chocolaty dates. These cute little packets can make for a perfect gifting item or a festival sweet. The contrasting colour of the conventional kaju katli and choco flavoured dates complement each other perfectly well.

Method:

  • In a small saucepan pour water and add granulated sugar to it. Simmer it over low heat, until¬† Sugar melts. Stir it occasionally.
  • Heat it until the sugar syrup reaches a 2 string consistency. (Take cold water in a small bowl and add the sygar syrup to it, if it settles to the bottom as a thick slurry, 2 string consistency has been reached.)
  • Switch off the flame and add the cashew powder and milk powder mixture. Stir constantly until everything is well combined.
  • Now spread a sheet of cling film and take the mixture on it. Now start combining the mix with the help of the cling film. Keep Kneading it until it forms a soft dough.
