Kaju Pista Roll


Ingredients:
·         250 grams cashew nuts
·         3 ½ tbsp pistachios
·         ¾ cup sugar
·         1 tbsp powdered sugar
·         Few drops Rose essence
·         Silver warq (optional)
Recipe:
Preheat the oven to 100°C. Dry roast the cashewnuts and pistachios separately in the oven for ten minutes and set aside to cool completely. Grind the cashewnuts and pistachios separately in to fine powder, taking care that no lumps are formed. Add the rose essence to the cashewnut powder and mix. Add the powdered sugar to the pistachio powder and mix. Heat sugar with three and a half tablespoons of water and cook until one string consistency syrup is formed. Cool it slightly and add it to the cashewnut powder and knead into dough. Divide the dough into equal portions and roll out thin roundel between two plastic sheets. Sprinkle the pistachio powder on the cashewnut roundels and roll it tightly. Decorate with varq, cut into two inch long pieces and serve.
