Introduction: Kajagoogoo! (Kaju Katli Style Marzipan)
If you followed my Instructable to make Napoleon Marching Bread, you've probably got a lot of left-over almond flour in the larder ... here's something you can do with it in 5 minutes to make a tasty sweet!
This is similar to home-made Marzipan, but with an Indian flavor. I was aiming for something like Kaju Katli (or as my wife calls it, Kajagoogoo), but I'm not sure if what came out could be better described as a Burfi or a Halwa. You decide. Anyway, whatever you call it, it's very tasty!
(Oh yes - and a food processor.)
Put a cup and a half of Badam Feast and a cup and a half of Almond Flour in the food processor and grind it finer. Then add an egg white and run the food processor on the low setting until it all collects into a ball of dough. If the dough is sticky, break it into smaller pieces, add more almond flour, and run the processor again - you want a consistency like Play Doh(tm)...
When you have a nice mouldable lump of dough, roll it into strips and cut the strips into coin-shaped pieces, then decorate with slivered almonds/cashews/pistachios if you have any, and serve. Or just eat it all while standing there in the kitchen :-)
Now if you're wondering what to do with all that left-over Badam Feast, try my recipe for 5-minute Shrikhand!
