We are in the mid of October and for me this month is always special for many reasons. Birthdays and festivals line up this month during which I really get intentional about meal planning, partying and hanging out for shopping. On top of all this, the weather God mercy upon us turning sweaty-SUN in to pleasant, feel-good season which is why this month is PRIME in terms of food and social life. To make things even better I prepared this kids-favorite kaju choco roll twice this month and it rocked like ever!!
Kaju choco roll is super fantastically lovable by anyone who has sweet teeth. It’s actually a descendant recipe of the plain kaju katli which has only cashews plus sugar. When you master the kaju katli like if you have made it 4 to 5 times successfully without any mess, then this is going to be cake-walk for you.
The prime ingredient cashew when powdered and mixed with sugar syrup takes the grainy dough form and this makes the exterior layer of kaju choco roll. In addition to cashews, coco powder combined with syrup gives an authentic chocolate layer look which is inner layer of this roll. When both dough perfectly get cooked, it’s easy to knead and flatten them over a flat surface. The use of parchment paper is very obvious in this recipe as it doesn’t let the cashew dough sticking and helps you roll like a swiss roll.
This simple, straight forward sweet can make your Diwali meal a happy affair. Lets do this.
