BADAAM KATLI (ALMOND FUDGE SLICES) – VEGAN, RAW, PALEO, KETO-FRIENDLY & REFINED SUGAR FREE

Badaam Katli ❤️‍🔥🥺 melts in your mouth like crazy! The best raw, vegan, paleo and refined sugar free one you’ll ever get. Only catch is – it’s super delicate to handle and dense in taste. I also made a reel – linked here. It ‘s a step by step video of how I made it 🧡

INGREDIENTS –

  • 1/2 organic coconut oil, melt it in the microwave
  • 2 cups organic almond flour 
  • 1/2 cup coconut flour 
  • 1/4 tsp cardamom powder or a big pinch
  • a dash of vanilla extract
  • 1 cup organic maple syrup (add 1/4 cup at a time)
  • a pinch of saffron
  • 2 tbsps rose petal powder (I made this recipe instantly after so many requests in my IG DMs – I was out of chopped almonds & pistachios. I you have those then use 1 tbsps rose petals, 2 tbsps almond slices and pistachios each) 

METHOD –

  • Line baking tray with wax paper, sprinkle saffron, and rose petals powder
  • Dump all ingredients in a bowl. Use clean hands to make a sticky dough (please please watch the reel video) and adjust maple syrup per your sweetness 
  • Spread it on the tray over rose petals and saffron. 
  • Line another wax paper over the dough and use a glass to press it down evenly.
  • I froze the tray for about 30-40 mins. 
  • Take out and cut in your desired shape. 
  • Again – it’s a delicate dessert so keep it refrigerated. 
  • Enjoy ☺️

SESAME CHILI TOFU

My new go-to tofu recipe. Takes under 30 minutes (including prep & cooking time) and perfect for laid back or hectic weekdays. Sharing the step-by-step version below. PLUS I also made a reel video recording how I make it. Link here.

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 box of firm tofu, remove excess water using a kitchen towel 
  • 2 tbsps corn flour
  • 1 tbsp red chili flakes (I used leftover chili flakes from pizza takeout)
  • 2-3 tbsps sesame oil 
  • 1/2 tbsp salt 
  • 3-4 tbsps sesame (I added more as I am a sesame seed junkie 😅)
  • 1-2 tbsp spring onions or scallions (cleaned & chopped)

METHOD:

  • Cut the tofu in long slices (1 box yields approx. 10-11 slices)
  • Take a clean, dry plate and put corn flour, salt, sesame seeds and chili flakes and mix well with a spoon
  • Pick up a tofu slice , dunk in the mix so sesame seeds get coated on all sides. 
  • Repeat for rest 9-10 slices 
  • Now heat a non stick pan with sesame oil. Lay tofu slices (5 or less based on your pan width. DO NOT CROWD them as you’ll end up breaking tofu)
  • Cook on both slides until the sesame seeds turn golden. (How much golden? Watch the video. Linked here
  • Serve with some ramen or Maggi noodles. Garnish with scallions!
  • Bon Appetit 🎉
