What is Mango Katli?

Mango katli or burfi is an Indian fudge made from almond flour, sugar syrup, and mango purée.

I am using the Costco Almond Flour for this recipe. Mango purée adds a really nice, fresh tropical flavor to this dish.

Traditionally, this fudge is cooked in boiling sugar syrup till a stretchy dough forms. The dough is then rolled out and cut into shapes.

The major advantage of my instant pot recipe is the pressure cooked sugar syrup.

And, this method doesn’t have any guess work for the syrup consistency.

After the natural pressure release, the sugar syrup is perfect for the fudge.

Take a small portion of the dough and roll between your fingers and it should easily form a ball.

  • Allow the mixture to rest for a while and cool down.
  • Now roll the dough on a silicone mat and roll it into a thin round disk. You may use a parchment paper to roll the dough easily.
  • At this point, add silver leaf on the dough and press it. Adding silver leaf is totally optional.
