Whenever i go to restaurants i have a look at the sweets section without fail.Some sweets would be really eye-catchy.One such sweet which caught my attention is kaju lotus.I wanted to try this for long time but i dint have any clue about it. Last year during diwali we bought aval vikatan magazine and i got Menu rani chellam’s diwali sweet recipes as supplementary..She had given the recipes of most popular sweets which had the recipe of kaju lotus too.She had told to use“liquid glucose” which is a colorless, odourless , sugar syrup like thing used in candies , jellies ets..So I bought from Nilgiris, jayanagar and I tried as per the recipe for my anniversary. But i felt the sugar mentioned is too high and also the liquid glucose made the sweet little hard like candy. May be liquid glucose is used in sweet stalls to get a perfect shape.So this time i reduced the quantity of sugar and i tried as per the method of kaju katli without adding liquid glucose. Soon i’ll update a picture by using liquid glucose to know the difference. .If u make kaju katli , u can easily try this sweet. Its the same procedure with slight variations in the end.Do watch the video ( My small attempt ) for making the shape .U can try making kaju mango,kaju apple , kaju strawberry like in sweet stalls using the same dough.Hope mine looks like kaju lotus.Try to make 6 petals as given in the original recipe. I had cut around 8...I guess I’ll get the perfect shape in future.I am happy with the result for second attempt. I’ve given the tips to overcome the problems u get while making this sweet. Hope this post would be useful.. Do try and let me know friends..Surprise ur family with this sweet for diwali
