This Kaju Pista Roll Recipe / Kaju Roll Recipe is an Indian sweet delicacy made during festivals like Diwali / Holi or any special occasions. It is one of the most expensive sweets available in shops and it is also high in calorie. But once in a while we can relish it. The process of making it is also easy only and if we go wrong somewhere also, there are multiple ways to trouble shoot it. When preparing at home, it is cost effective also and we get a happy feeling when we complete it. Lets go to the recipe…
Wish you a happy and colourful Holi
1. Ensure both the cashew and pista are in room temperature, else it becomes a paste when grinding.
2. Don’t use cashew and pista directly from fridge, as it contains moisture when kept inside.
3. If you doubt there is moisture in the nuts, slightly dry roast it in a pan.
4. Always grind the cashew and pista in one stretch to get fine powder.
5. Also don’t grind for longer, else it becomes a paste.
6.Sieve both the cashew and pista powder for smooth dough.
7. If the powder is little coarse when grinding it’s ok, as we sieve it and becomes smooth while kneading.
8. Use a non-stick pan / thick bottomed pan to avoid burning and easy cooking.
9. One string consistency is very important. Don’t boil further than one string consistency, otherwise kaju dough becomes hard.
10. If the kaju dough becomes hard, add 2 tblsp of water and reheat again in low flame.
11. Also don’t knead both the dough hardly, else it starts releasing oil.
12. If the dough becomes dry, sprinkle little milk and knead it again. But milk reduces the shelf life.
13. Always knead the dough when it is warm itself, else it will be difficult to roll.
14. Pista can skipped and it can be made as kaju roll recipe only.
15. Shelf life of this kaju pista roll recipe is 4 to 5 days.
