  • Add milk and mix again. Adding milk in optional in regular kaju katli and we do it only if it becomes dry, however for this recipe it is a must to add as we are going to make them into shape.
  • The shape of the Minnie mouse comes well only while the dish is hot, hence we need to start shaping when the heat is bearable for our hand. Greece your palms with ghee.
  • Take 1tblsp of the rose kaju katli and shape them like a ball and press in between you palm to make it a flat and thick circle. This becomes the face for the mini mouse. You may wish to leave it like a round shape face or make it slightly oval bel

  • Take ½ tblsp of the rose kaju katli and them like a ball and press in between you palm to make it a flat and thick circle. This becomes one ear of the mini mouse. Make the second ear also in the same way.
  • For the ears make a small dent by pressing a finger in the middle. Measuring is important to get the right shape, hence do not ignore the measurements.

  • Refrigerate for 30 minutes. This would help the shape to be intact.
  • After 30 minutes, take baking chocolate and melt it. Melt it using a ceramic chocolate melting hot pot with a candle below. Take a chop stick and dip the smaller side into melted chocolate.

I love to cook the most authentic way. Most of my recipes are cooked either in claypot or kalchatti / soapstone. They are extremely beneficial as they retain the nutrients. Before cooking a recipe in these vessels I do in-depth research and make sure it is doable in any modular kitchen.
