Kaju katlis are the best. Period. But then, they are also slightly expensive. So if you have been looking for pocket-friendly alternatives, we suggest you try katlis made using peanut flour. Trust us, the taste is as good as kaju katlis! It is also a great alternative for those who have cashew allergy. It is also gluten-free and can be given a vegan twist.

So here’s a simple recipe from food blogging site, Amma ki Thaali, that you should try to satiate your sweet cravings.


100g – Peanuts/2 cups – Peanut flour
1 cup – Milk powder
100g – Sugar
100ml – Water
