Kaju katli is a cookie-like Indian sweet made from a dough consisting largely of ground cashew nuts; the name translates as “cashew slice.” It’s dense, milky, nutty, and less sweet than many other Indian pastries. The dough is cut into diamond shapes and, if you desire, can be topped with an edible silver foil known as vark.

This is one of the most popular sweets to make for special occasions, like festivals and weddings, and especially for the holiday Diwali. Aside from being delicious, kaju katli are very simple to make and can be ready in minutes.
