Kaju Pista Rolls

Sweets made of any kind of nuts or any milk sweets are considered special and rich. Indeed they are, special and rich and made on occasions like Holi, Deepavali or marriages. Kaju pista rolls definitely fall into that category. They are rich and nutty and a sure shot favourite amongst kids and adults.

Making kaju pista rolls involves a few steps but they do not require a lot of ingredients. Once you get the consistency right, making kaju pista rolls will then be a matter of just rolling them up 🙂 Nuts within nuts, who will not like them, these are fun to eat.

Do keep a count, or you may end up eating a few kaju pista rolls in one go, very addictive. But not to worry, even a piece or 2 of these will satiate your craving for nutty kaju pista rolls. I have already posted the recipe of kaju katli and the kaju dough made in that recipe makes the outer covering for these kaju pista rolls.
The most important step is get the correct consistency of sugar syrup. Follow the steps carefully and you can savour these rich sweets, kaju pista rolls. Try more special sweets from FOI:
