Groundnut Katli | Groundnut Katli in Pressure Cooker | Kadlekai Burfi under 10 minutes | OPOS Groundnut Katli

Most of you are familiar with the famous Indian sweets Kaju Katli and Badam (Almond) Katli. These sweets taste heavenly and were mostly store bought when I was a kid. These days, many of us are able to prepare these famous sweets at the convenience of our homes. 
OPOS (One Pot One Shot) is an innovative or rather I can say, more simplified way of cooking which is becoming famous these days. I was introduced to OPOS cooking few months back by one of my friends. Many thanks to Rama Krishnan Sir for making cooking so simple through OPOS.
Basically, OPOS cooking needs a 2 litre pressure cooker which I didn't have. But I was eager to try OPOS cooking and hence, started experimenting my dishes using my 3 litre pressure cooker. Luckily, my experiments went well and I'm preparing most of my side dishes in OPOS way now a days. 
After seeing the OPOS Kaju Katli recipe, I thought to prepare Katli using groundnuts. My Mom makes Groundnut Burfi, which takes a lot of time stirring the mixture on the stovetop. I just modified my Mom's Groundnut Burfi recipe to suit the OPOS way. Groundnut Katli turned out very well and tasted amazing! My daughter loved them a lot and I ended up preparing one more batch of Groundnut Katli the very next day. Believe me, they are really addictive!


Preparation time: 7 - 8 minutes
Time to set: 20 minutes
Difficulty level: Easy
Yield: 35 pieces

Ingredients:
  • Sugar - 1 cup minus 1 tbsp (1 cup = 200 gm)
  • Milk - 1/2 cup
  • Groundnut powder (Roast, remove the skin and make fine powder) - 1 cup 
  • Ghee / Clarified butter - 1 tbsp (for greasing)
  • Pressure cooker - 2 litre or 3 litre (I have used 3 litre pressure cooker)

Method:
  • Combine milk and sugar in the pressure cooker and give it a stir. If the sugar crystals are bigger, stir the mixture nicely till sugar dissolves. 
  • Close the lid and cook on high till 6 whistles. Make sure to wipe off the sugar water which comes out with every whistle; else, it won't whistle properly.
  • Turn off the flame and release all the pressure using a spoon. 
  • Take the lid out and fold in the groundnut powder. Mix it quickly without lumps and close the lid again. Allow it to set for 20 minutes.
  • Open the cooker lid after 20 minutes and by that time, the mixture will become like a thick dough. Grease your palms with ghee and mix the dough once. Transfer the dough onto a greased plate and pat it thinly. 
  • Cut them into desired shapes and enjoy the delicious Groundnut Katli!


Tips:
  • Since the cooking needs to be done on high flame, you have to use either induction or gas stove. 
  • While preparing groundnut powder, don't run the mixie / blender continuously; instead, try to whip and powder.
