I made this katli,by using canned lichi juice,the taste is divine,if you have fresh lichi can use it"s juice too......the fragrance and tste of lichi blends so well with almonds...i don"t have a word to define it...:)

  • Cook time:
  • Prep time:
  • Yields: make normal size 13-15 pieces
  • 500 gram almonds (soaked,peeled and pureed-can use little bit water to make fine paste)
  • 450 ml lichi juice (tatra pack)
  • For Garnish:
  • silver varakh

In a deep heavy bottom pan,mix almond paste and lichi juice,Cook this mixture on low flame, stirring constantly,till the mixture,started leaving the pan.


Cool the mixture,make a 1/2 inch thick chapatti of it,apply silver varakh on it with light hands and then cut it into diamond shape.


Can be stored on self for a week in air tight container.
