Almond Flour – 1 Cup
Granular Sugar – 1/2 Cup [ I used 1 tbsp less of 1/2 cup)
Cardamom Powder – 1/2 tsp
Milk – 2 tbsp [as required]
Edible Sliver Foil/Warq – 1 sheet [optional]
Ghee – For greasing


1 Make almond flour as mention.

2. Heat a pan/wok and roast flour for a minute, stir continuous to avoid burning.

3. Add sugar and stir again for 2 minutes do this on medium flame, if you rest for 5 seconds too,  flour colour will change to brown.   Now add cardamom powder, 2 tbsp of milk and mix well.

4. Keep on stirring until it forms a mass, start leavening edges of wok and forms a smooth dough/lump.  While stirring try to smooth the mixture with back of latter.

5. Grease a plate with ghee and pour this mixture, spread it evenly in thin layer, you can use rolling pin and roll it too, allow it to cool for 2-3 minutes.  Now spread the sliver warq, press the warq with the butter paper so it’s stick to the katlis well.

Cut in desire shape with cookie cutter or in square/diamond shape and once completely cooled, store the pieces in air tight box if anything left to store !  You can keep this in fridge up to a week.

Badam katli is ready.  Don’t worry about the sliver varq not properly applied on each piece.
