  1. Stir sugar syrup well before closing the lid
  2. Use a proper 2 little cooker which whistles on/all time. Keep the flame on medium heaT
  3. Releases the pressure immediately else the syrup might lose its consistency. I use fork to release the pressure. Pls be careful while releasing the pressure
  4.  The recipe works perfectly. While trying to take picture/ video for the blog. I lost the consistency few times. This is what I did. If the dough breaks sprinkled little water and switch on the stove and cook till if becomes a non stick mass of dough. If the mixture is wet add a tbsp of cashew powder extra
  5. Cardamom powder can be added for extra flavor
  6.  For the mentioned quantity 4 whistles comes around 4 mins
  7. You can double or alter the recipe. 4 whistle is the key
  8.  You can roll the Almond katli in any surface for me the aluminum foil method suggested by my friend was a breeze
  9. Whole Almonds can be used instead. Soak it in hot water and remove skin. Dry roast slightly to remove the moisture and powder it
  10. Avoid keeping the cooker on maximum flame, sugar syrup might get burnt. Keep it between medium to high, make sure flame is not outside the cooker
  11. Preferably use 2 liter cooker. If your are using 3 liter cooker make sure quantity is at-least ¼ of the cooker to avoid cooker from getting burnt
