For the third of BM, I wanted to post something from Jayasree Satish's blog
. I selected this simple and easy Badam Katli. The best part was it being done in Microwave and doesn't take much time. Though I had planned on few other recipes, I wanted to make something from her blog. She says she replaced badam in place of Kaaju, which is normally made as Kaaju Katli. The taste was awesome, though mine didn't exactly come out as the smooth textured katlis in the beginning. I allowed it to rest for some time, nearly couple of hours. Maybe it would have set within 30 mins or so. After that I rolled out, it came out well set.
Cooking in microwave takes only 5 mins, since I halved the measurement, it was almost only 3 mins 30 secs. You ought to be careful with the time in the last stage, else you will end up with a burnt mix.
Final picture after rolling out.
Before rolling out.
Badam Katli | Almond Cake
Badam powder - 1 cup
Milk powder - 1/2 cup
Milk - 1 tbspn
Powdered Sugar - 3/4 cup
How to make Badam Katli in Microwave
Powder the almond in a mixer along with it's skin. Similarly powder the sugar also.
In a microwave safe bowl, mix all the ingredients along with milk.
MW for 2 minutes., remove and stir. Again micro for 1 min.
When you remove at this stage, the mix will turn dry and starts frothing on the surface. Remove from the MW.
Keep mixing with a ladle for 3 more minutes. It gets dried in the heat trapped in the mixture. Allow it to cool for 5 mins.
When warm, knead into a smooth dough and spread on a greased surface. Pat it using a rolling pin and mark the pieces using a knife.
You can still roll out to a smooth texture after it cools down also.
