Kajagoogoo! (Kaju Katli Style Marzipan)




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!

You'll need almond flour, an egg, and one secret ingredient... "MTR Badam Feast".

(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!

    So you add the "Badam Feast" in as it is, or do you mix it with water or something first? If I am understanding correctly, it is a dry drink mix, yes? I'm wondering if it would be possible to substitute something like almond milk...

    Just as it is. Most of the moisture comes from the oil that is implicit in the almond flour, plus the egg white used to bind it. This is just a variation on Marzipan which uses icing sugar in the same proportion that I used Badam Feast here (1.5 cups). You could try experimenting with icing sugar plus cardamom and maybe a little saffron? By the way you can also get away with an icing sugar/artificial sweetener mixture instead of 100% icing sugar - Splenda or Stevia both work.
