Kaju pista roll is a traditional Indian sweet made with cashew,pistachios,condensed milk,milkpowder.It is very easy to prepare when you have all ingredients.I prepare this recipe on occasion of Diwali.Here goes yummy recipe.


  •  2 cups of cashew nuts unsalted
  • 1 tin condensed milk( appromimately 1 cup ).
  • 2 teaspoons of ghee
  • 1 teaspoons of rose water
  • 2 cups of pistachio unsalted
  •  Green food coloring a pinch(optional)
  • 1 tspn of grounded cardamom
  • 4 tbspn of milk powder.


  • Blend cashews and pistachios to fine powder and keep aside.
  • Take a deep non stick pan add grounded cashews,  half of condensed milk,1 spn ghee and mix well in a medium to low flame  around 10 mins or until it is combined well.
  • In another pan take grounded pistachio add 1 tspn ghee, remaining condensed milk, cardamom powder,green color mix well around 10 mins or until it is well combined.
  • Now stir 2 to 3 tbspn off milk powder in each pan until firm dough is formed.
  • Remove from the pan and allow them cool separately.
  • Now roll cashew mixture on a zip-lock to form a small rectangle,nearly our palm size.
  • Take pistachio mixture and form into a small log less than cashew sheet size.
  • Tightly roll cashew around pistachio log and allow it cool in a refrigerator.

Note: I haven't use any sugar as i used sweetened condensed milk.
         Add extra milk powder if you want the pista more firm.
