  • 1 cup Blanched almond flour
  • 1/4 cup almond milk
  • A pinch of saffron
  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar-free sweetener more if you want a sweeter katli


Roast the blanched flour:

  • Take a cup of blanched almond flour and sift it through a flour sieve.
  • Add the sifted flour to a preheated frying pan and roast it for a while.
  • Once the flour becomes fragrant, turn the heat off and transfer the roasted flour into a mixing bowl.

Powder sweetener:

  • I used swerve and monk fruit sugar for this recipe. For most Indian desserts I prefer swerve or Splenda because both have a minimal aftertaste. However, you can use any sugar-free sweetener of your choice for this recipe.
  • Because most sugar-free sweeteners are granular, you will need to make a fine powder of it.
  • Take 1/4 cup of sugar alternative in a small spice jar and blend it into a powder. Use it for this recipe.

Prepare the Safforn milk.

  • Take four tbsp of almond milk in a bowl and warm it.
  • Add a pinch of saffron and allow it to stand for a while

Prepare the dough:

  • Now add the sweetener powder to the almond flour and mix well. You can add some cardamom powder or rose extract at this point.
  • Now add some saffron milk(1 tbsp at a time) and mix it well to prepare a dough.
  • Once the dough forms, you will see little oil oozing. Knead it for a few more minutes and a smooth dough will form.

Prepare katli:

  • Place the dough ball on a parchment paper and roll it flat using a rolling pin.
  • Keep the thickness equal and even throughout.
  • By using a big kitchen knife, cut the dough into diamond-shaped katlis.
  • Garnish with chopped nuts or saffron strands.
  • Allow the katlis to air dry for a while.
  • Your keto katli is ready to savor.


  • You don’t need any extra fat to make this katli. However, if you must use, then add a tbsp of coconut oil or ghee for the best results.
  • If using sugar, add equal amount of powdered sugar matching the almond flour amount in cups.
  • Adding any flavoring agent, essence or color is a personal choice. I have used saffron milk for adding a touch of saffron in this recipe.
  • Use a silicone spatula to knead the dough thoroughly so that the sugar-free sweetener incorporates well in the dough without leaving any chunky or lumpy mass.
  • These katlis stay longer in the refrigerator and stay fresh outside for three to five days.
