Suggestions:

  • Adding chopped pistachios and almonds will make the stuffing better as the chunks of pistachios will taste good in bite.
  • If the paste will not cool down then it will not set and also rolls will not be prepared.
  • Also make sure that the paste doesn’t cool down too much else it will set and will get difficult to make rolls.
  • While grinding the mixture you don’t grind them too finely so that it should not turn into a paste, it should remain powdered.
  • Strain the powder so that big chunks can be separated easily.
  • While cooking the cashew powder, keep special note of its consistency. If the paste is not cooked with desired consistency and remains less cooked then it might get difficult to bind and roll out the paste.
  • If the paste is over cooked then it will be easy to bind it as a dough ball but then while rolling out it will splatter and also you will not be able to make rolls.
  • Check the paste if it forms soft balls on setting.
