Badam Katli

Badam Katli is a traditional Indian dessert that is made with almonds, sugar, and ghee. There are many myths about this dessert. One of them is that eating Almond Katli before bed will help people sleep better.

It’s traditionally made on festive occasions such as Diwali, Navratri or weddings, but can also be found on sweet shop menus all year round.

A closer variant of this is the popular Kaju Katli.
