    Hi, Parvati, Shruti, and it was my pleasure to share sweet recipe. 1. Chasni(syrup) should not be too strong(thick), else katli would not be soft. 2. To soak and grind KAJU is for u to try. 3. u can grind 5-10 whole cardamom with 2 tsp. of sugar, and keep in airtight container. It can also be used for coffee, but alter the quantity of sugar as per taste.


    i will try it today. thanks 4 such sweet receipe hope my fiancee will like it. it is among his favourite sweets.can i add elaichi as a whole if i dont have powder?
