Cashew Rolls (Kaju rolls)

yields approx. 40 1-inch rolls

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups cashewnuts powder (Dry grind cashewnuts into fine powder),
  • 1 cup sugar,
  • 1/4 cup water
  • cardamom powder,
  • saffron strands dissolved in a 2 tsp warm milk(optional),
  • silver foil (Varkha - used to decorate the sweets- this is optional),

Method

  1. Combine the sugar and water in a saucepan and let boil over medium heat until it forms into one string consistency syrup.
  2. Now add ground cashewnuts and cardamom powder. Keep the heat on medium.
  3. Stir the mixture vigorously to avoid lump formation. Add saffron.
  4. Lightly grease a tray or plate.
  5. When the mixture starts leaving the edges of the vessel and tends to form a ball, remove onto a plate. When it is a little warm, knead well with hand and form into rolls. Decorate them with silver foil and let cool. Then cut into desired size.
