This year during Deepavali , a Festival of Lights, I tried this new recipe which turned out delicious. The roasted desiccated coconut gave a lovely flavour to the roll.The rose syrup and the glazed cherry bits gave the love polish hue to the roll.
Desiccated Coconut roasted – 1 cup
Milk powder – 1.5 cups
Glazed cherries -5-6 pieces.
Cashew powder – 2 table spoons.
Milk – 1/2 cup
Ghee – 3 table spoons
Rose syrup – 1 spoon.
I’m a bowl add the milk powder and a spoon of melted ghee and rub the mixture lightly with your finger tips. Add about 2 to 3 table spoons of milk and rub them all together with light finger movements.
Now add the rest of the milk, roasted desiccated coconut and cashew powder and prepare the dough kneading lightly.
Heat a non stick pan and add a spoon of ghee and the dough. Keep moving your hands quickly for 5-6 minutes until the dough begins to form a ball.
Now add in the cherry bits and the rose syrup and mix well.
Take an aluminium foil and apply some ghee to it.
Put the mixture on rhe aluminium foil and try to make a thin roll along with the foil. Tuck the edges and refrigerate it for 40 minutes.
Open the foil and slice the roll into thin slices. The knife may get sticky so wife it every time you slice it in order to get perfect slices. Now lightly press the pistachio slivers over each slice lightly and enjoy them.
Since both the dessicated coconut, milk powder and rose flavour are sweet in nature., I have not used any sugar or sweetener .
If you wish it to be sweeter then you may add in a table spoon of icing sugar.
