Indian dessert recipes are known for their flavour, taste and creamy richness it has to offer. However, these are generally prepared with a premium selection of dry fruits, and ingredients which may not be justified. Yet there are other cheaper alternative ingredients and peanut katli recipe is one such easy and simple classical Indian dessert recipe.

While using those produces some of the best Indian sweets, but can be an expensive matter. I personally prefer simple and easy-to-prepare sweets. So I am presenting one of the simple, easy and more importantly thrifty Indian sweet recipes. Basically, I have prepared a katli sweet with peanuts, but not with cashews. Trust me, you would not be easily identified if it is prepared with cashews or peanuts just by taste. In other words, it produces the same texture, and taste with the same steps as you follow in kaju katli. Do try this variation of katli recipe and let me know if you like it?

Peanut Katli Recipe Furthermore, some more additional tips, suggestions and variations to the peanut katli recipe. Firstly, the peanuts have to be fresh and make sure it is of the best quality. Typically, stale peanuts may have some awful taste which may spoil the entire sweet taste. Therefore, check the expiry date before purchasing it from the grocery store. Secondly, I roasted the peanuts in slow to medium flame. This is an essential and important step, which should negate the raw smell and flavour of peanuts. Alternatively, you can purchase roasted peanuts from the store to hasten the cooking time. Lastly, I have applied silver vark or foil to get an authentic look. However, it is not mandatory and can be skipped if you do not have it.
