This sweet i wanted to try for a long long time and finally got a chance to make it. I wanted to send some sweets to my close friends and got a nice chance to make it. Hope they will like it.
1 cup Cashew powder
3/4 cup Castor sugar(Powdered sugar)
1/4 cup water
Grind the cashew to fine powder.
In a kadai add the water and sugar powder and allow it boil. No need to check for string consistency.
Once you see the white bubbles at the bottom of the pan, add the cashew powder and mix well.
Keep stirring and you will see that the dough is getting thicker and will form a semi dough then switch of the stove. (The best way to check is, Drop a little in a plate and check it. It should form a soft ball).
Transfer it to a plate and allow it to cool.
Once it is cooled a little bit, Knead the dough with your hands well and it will form like a chappathi dough.
If the dough is too dry and you are not able t roll, You can add a little milk to make it soft dough.
Roll it and cut into desired shapes.[This is for Kaju kathli]
1 cup unsalted pista
1/2 cup powdered sugar
less than 1/4 water
Follow the same procedure as the Cashew barfi and keep the dough aside.
For cashew-Pista Roll
Take a small ball size cashew dough and roll it a littlle bit.
Place a small ball size pista dough and cover it and cut it into half.
cashew-pista roll is ready.
Happy Diwali to all of you.
