Chocolate Pista Roll | Diwali Sweets

>>  Tuesday, November 6, 2012

For the final day of the the Diwal Special Recipes, I decided to make this Chocolate Pista Roll. I prepared this yesterday but since it requires to be refrigerated, I couldn't get it done right away. Moreover you really need a tact to get the sheet rolled out to perfectness and then rolled into the Pista roll. 

Well after I had rolled and clicked, I realised I could've tried clicking the pictures differently. Blame it on so many other things that happen at the same time. Parents came home and in midst of shuffling with making dinner and getting other things ready, I rolled out these and you can imagine why they look so funny..:)

The saving grace was the fact that the rolls were delicious. As I always say, looks hardly matters when nothing remains in the plate. On that account, this scored well.

So here's another relatively simple recipe that you can make for Diwali. 

Chocolate Pista Rolls

Ingredients Needed

Khoya / Kova - 1 cup
Milk powder - 1 cup
Condensed Milk -  1/2 cup
Coco powder - 2 tbsp
Pista powder - 4 tbsp
Ghee to grease your hand

How to make the Chocolate Pista Rolls

Crumble the kova in a thick bottom pan. Then add milk powder, condensed milk and cook at medium heat.

When it starts melting, continue cooking for another 5-6 minutes, it will form like dough.

Remove 1/3 of this dough and add pista powder to it. Grease your hand with ghee and mix well, leave it the fridge for 15 mins. Then roll this into cylindrical shape and leave it the fridge for 15 minutes.

With the remaining 3/4 of the dough, add 2 tbsp of coco powder and greasing your hand with ghee mix well.

Roll this into a rectangle making sure the height is the same length of pista roll.

Keep the pista roll on one end and roll it tightly with the chocolate roll. Refrigerate it for 15-20 minutes. Then slice it.


Since I couldn't get unsweetened kova, I didn't use sugar, else you can use p1/2 cup of powdered sugar.
