Kaju Roll / Cashew Roll

Kaju Roll is sweet made out of cashew. It has its rich texture, taste and is not very sweet. You can store this in an airtight container for up to 10 days. This does not need any specific topping or garnish and is served mostly as is. My daughter was very excited to see me do this and she named this as surprise sweet as she is the only one who knows that there is a different color inside:) I am sharing this for this month's Blogging Marathon

Method
Dry roast the cashew for 3 minutes or until it is very warm to touch and set aside. Grind to a fine powder and run it through a sieve
Boil water and add sugar and bring it to 3 string consistency or very hard ball consistency
You drop a small piece of the sugar mixture, it should hold its shape very strong and not fall apart
Now add the powdered cashew and mix well until combined
Add cardamom and saffron and remove from heat
Once cool to touch, transfer to a work area and divide it into 2 portions
To one portion add a drop or two of green food coloring and knead it well. Make small portions of it.
Knead the other portion also separately well. Make 1/2 to 3/4 inch diameter and 6 inch length logs and set aside
Take one portion, make a 6 inch X 3 inch rectangle and lay it on the counter, now keep one log inside and cover it from all sides such that you get a roll covered completely. Cut into 2 portions to get 2 3 inch pieces
Repeat for the rest to get green outer shell and white inside. You could also do the opposite color to get white outer shell and green inside
Refrigerate for an hour (optional) and serve

  15. very pretty...I make lots of cashew sweets for Diwali...Sowmya..instead of adding color, how about using a pista mithai inside..or perhaps you could add saffron to the second half..and stuff that..you get two flavors.
