Method For Pistachio filling:

  1. Take Pistachios in a mixer jar and grind it in pulse mode till the pista becomes a coarse powder
  2. Take pistachio powder in a plate. Add powdered sugar. Add green food color to the milk and mix well. Add this green food color milk little by little and knead pista+sugar mixture to a smooth dough
  3. The Pistachio filling Ready!

Method For Cashew Outcover:
  1. Take a flat plate and grease it with ghee. Also grease the rolling pin with little ghee. First lets get ready with our ingredients. If you have stored the cashews in refrigerator, then take it out and bring it to a room temperature. If you are using whole cashews, then break it to two. Take the cashews in a dry mixer and grind it to a powder. Sometimes the ground powder might be mushy, do not panic, while mixing this ground cashew with the sugar syrup, this would become smooth. 
  2. Heat a pan and add sugar and water and mix well. Let the sugar dissolves in water and keep stirring it in low flame until we get a one-string consistency. We can test the one-string consistency in 2 ways. First, we can take a drop of sugar syrup and rub it in between thumb and point finger and if we move the fingers apart, we should be able to see single string forming in-between the two fingers. Other method is, just pour a drop of sugar syrup in a bowl of water and you could see it forms a ring without getting dissolved in water. 
  3. Now, at this point we need to add our ground cashew powder and keep mixing it with a flat spatula continuously. Within few minutes, we could see our Kaju mixture starts forming like a dough without sticking on the sides of the pan, at this point add cardamom powder and ghee and keep stirring. 
  4. Within one minute, we could be able to see the dough getting still more thickening. Switch off the flame and keep stirring as we have still heat in the pan.  Take a small piece of kaju mixture and if you roll it, it should roll it to a ball. This is the correct stage to remove the kaju mixture from the flame. Allow the kaju mixture to cool off for a while and then with your hands nicely knead it to a dough and place the dough in the greased plate and using a rolling pin roll it to a slightly thick and big circle. We can also add cashew mixture to the butter paper/ parchment paper and cover with another parchment paper and roll it to a slightly thick circle
Method For Kaju Pista Rolls:
  1. Take the Pistachio dough and roll it like a log of 1" thickness. Cut into half and keep it ready
  2. Cut the rolled cashew in half. Then Place the rolled pistachio log in one half of the rolled cashew slowly start to wrap the cashew sheet and roll enclosing the pistachio roll.
  3. Repeat the same for the other half of the rolled cashew dough. Again roll each kaju pista roll to a thin cylinder. Finally Cut into 2" long pieces
  4. The delicious Kaju Pista Rolls Ready to serve!
