Diwali Special Sweet Pista - Badam Roll Recipe - M.M.Mithaiwala


For the Covering:-
    ½ cup almonds, powdered
    ½ cup cashew nuts, powdered
    ½ cup sugar or to taste
    ½ tsp. cardamom powder
    Pinch of nutmeg powder
    Few strands saffron

For the Centre:-

    ¼ cup pistachios, powdered
    ¼ cup sugar
    Cardamom powder to taste


Add a little water to ½ cup sugar in a heavy-bottomed pan and bring it to a boil. Keep stirring on a low heat till the sugar syrup is stick and reaches one string consistency. Add cardamom powder, nutmeg powder and saffron. Stir well. Add almond powder and cashewnut powder. Stir till well mixed and the mixture leaves the sides of the pan. Remove from heat and keep aside.

For centre:-

In another heavy bottomed pan, put ¼ cup sugar and a little water and bring it to a boil. When the syrup reaches one string consistency, add cardamom powder and pistachio powder. Stir well till it forms a smooth mixture and leaves the sides of the pan. Remove from heat.
When both the mixtures are cool, lightly knead them separately. Roll the almond-cashewnut mixture on greaseproof paper to ¾cm thick rectangular chapati. Roll the pistachio mixture into a long cylindrical shape and place over the almond-cashewnut chapati. Gently roll, to cover the pistachio mixture completely. Pat the roll gently. 

Note: - Decorate with silver film (varaq) and cut into slices.
