Key Notes:

  1. Cashews and pistachios should be at room temperature at the time of grinding. If you keep nuts in Fridge, take them out in advance and make sure that they are at room temperature. Otherwise they will not loose moisture while grinding and you won’t get the dry powder of nuts.
  2.  Grind the cashews in one stretch, till it turns into fine powder.  Don’t stop in between.
  3.  Don’t add too much water while making dough from Pistachios powder. You will only need 4-5 drops, so be careful while adding.
  4. You can store kaju pista roll for about 10 days in an air tight container.
