Badam burfi is one popular katli variety found in most sweet shops in India. Here is simple homemade version of this item. Coming to making perfect soft and sharp katli is quite an art and needs lot of practice. Fine grounding the nuts is one key factor which is hard to do with regular mixies… so mine will look slightly coarse texture wise. Adding milk while grinding is also another trick to grind them to a paste consistency but shelf life is limited and also mostly yields halwa like chewy bufis which I personally don't like and always powder mine after drying.
Dates with heavy loads of assorted chopped nuts with slight tinge of milk fat makes this chewy healthy halwa. The conistency is similar to halwa but can be shaped to your choice, so call it whatever you want it to be…..we at home call it Date Domino's
