Apple Kaju Katli | Kaju Katli | Diwali Special


 When I bake, especially my lil one who never allows them to cool, try to touch it, poke it and he just roam over the kitchen till he gets his bite :-). If you give a whole cake he gulps it in a minute of time :-). But my kids desire over Indian sweets is less and i can hardly count and say thier likes. Ladoos and Adhirasam are most favorite of them, apart from few its hard to feed our wide sweet/desserts. Coming to today’s recipe this is simple, ghee free yet attracts my kind off kids much :-). Yup it is Kaju Apple/Cashewnuts Katli, So finally these attractive sweet is peeped up in my kids favorite list and daily after returning from school lil one asks me atleast 3 mini apples (ie apple kaju) to eat :-).
