kaju pista rollkaju pista roll recipe | kaju roll recipe with step by step photo recipe. in hindi kaju means cashews and pista means pistachios. basically a cylindrical shaped indian mithai recipe prepared from powdered cashews and pistachios. unlike other indian sweet recipes, kaju pista roll recipe is considered to be less sugary. however, kaju roll would not disappoint in its taste and richness.

this is my second attempt of preparing the kaju pista roll, as my first attempt wasn’t that great. last time when i prepared this recipe, it was a chilly winter here in australia. because of the chilly whether, the sugar syrup crystallizes rapidly. after achieving single thread consistency, i was bit late to add the cashew powder. as result, i wasn’t able to roll the cashew paste properly and there were several cracks on it. hence with second attempt, i am sharing a full proof method of kaju pista roll.

furthermore, i would like to share some do’s and dont’s of kaju pista roll recipe. firstly, once the one string consistency is achieved with sugar switch of the heat immediately. do not continue to stir or heat the sugar syrup. secondly, i have added green food color for pistachios powder. you can skip this if you do not wish too add food colors. also, do not forget to knead the cashew paste once you transfer it to rolling surface from pan. the dough should release its oil while kneading. lastly, if you are not able to roll the cashew paste, then reheat the dough with 2 tbsp of water. and you should be able to get smooth dough.

finally, i would like to highlight my other indian sweet recipes collection. particularly, kaju katli, rasgulla, gulam jamun, motichoor ladoo, moong dal halwa and coconut barfi recipe. also, do have a look at my indian dessert recipes collection. especially, eggless chocolate mousse, eggless vanilla sponge cake, kesar pista kulfi, falooda and mango mastani recipe.
