I made the blanched almonds previous day morning and dried it the whole day and overnight, then started the recipe next day morning.
If you fry the blanched almonds in oven, make sure it is not roasted and also cool it completely before grinding.
I didn't grind the almonds to smooth powder, instead a fine coarse like rava/sooji/semolina.
Do not alter the sugar or water content in the recipe, the above recipe will give you a perfect or slightly sweeter katlis.
You can also add pinch of cardamom powder for flavor and saffron for flavor and color.
