PISTACHIO PANEER ROLLS

Made n Enjoyed
Hello readers,

Didn’t the last twelve months fly by? In a blur of cooking galore, 2013 is almost over. It’s not all bad news, though. 2014 is just around the corner, and from where we’re standing, it looks like a lot of fun and feastful of joy!



         JCO wishes you and your family Happiness, Prosperity, Longevity, and Good Health !
Happy New Year !


What better way to bring in the new year than to sweeten your mouth! These lovely rolls are perfect to share with friends and family on NYE and New Years day!


Pistachio Paneer rolls are delicate, rich and elegant. They surrender into your mouth, as their smooth, cardamom touched sweetness fills your taste buds. The pistachio pieces add a hint of flavour, but mostly provide a bite once the rolls have dissolved.

Don't want to make rolls? spread the mixture in a greased tray to make Pistachio Paneer Barfi!

    PISTACHIO PANEER ROLLS

    These Pista Paneer Rolls are sweet and sumptuous. Great for any celebrations.
    prep time: 10 Mcook time: 40 Mtotal time: 50 M

    ingredients:

    • 1 1/2 cup raw pistachio
    • 1/4 cup grated paneer
    • 1/4 cup mawa/khoya
    • 1/2 cup double cream
    • 1/2 cup caster sugar
    • 2 tbsp. ghee or unsalted butter
    • 1/2 tsp. cardamom powder
    • 1/2 tsp. nutmeg powder

    instructions:

    How to cook PISTACHIO PANEER ROLLS

    1. Roast the pistachio nuts on a very low heat for 4-5 minutes in a heavy-based pan. 
    2. Let it cool completely. Grind them in the grinder till you get a fine but not very fine powder. ( I like some crunch in the rolls ), leave it aside.
    3. Put the cream in a saucepan and bring to the boil, lowering the heat when it gets hot. 
    4. Add the sugar and cook on a low heat until it bubbles and forms a single thread consistency - this should take 8-10 minutes.
    5. Meanwhile, roast the khoya in a 1tbsp ghee for 2-3 minutes, take care not to burn the khoya. 
    6. Add the khoya and stir for a couple of minutes until it begins to leave the side of the pan.
    7. Add the pistachio, paneer, cardamom and nutmeg powder and cook for a couple of minutes. 
    8. You will get nice thick mass if you want to make barfi, turn out onto a greased plate and allow to cool. 
    9. Cut into squares.o make rolls transfer the mixture into another plate, let it cool slightly or till you can handle the mixture. 
    10. Take work board grease your palm with little ghee and divide the mixture into 3-4 equal parts.
    11. Knead the mixture then shape it into a long sausage. 
    12. Kneaded up to your requirement whether you prefer thick or thin.
    13. Cover the sausages with the cling film not to wrap uptight, and leave it in the fridge for a couple of hours. 
    14. Take them out and cut the rolls into 3" pieces.
    15. If you prefer to roll them into silver edible foil ( varakh ) ( I don't use varakh as it is not suitable for vegetarians ) so I use edible glitter.
    16. I had some melted chocolate left from Wheat Germ Mocha Cream Cookies, so I dipped in the melted chocolate and applied chocolate transfer sheet.

    NOTES:

    Instead of pistachio nuts, you can use cashew nuts.

      1. Here is the details Saiaja
        They are made by hammering thin sheets of silver in middle of booklets made of a bull's intestines. In other words, after slaughtering a bull, quickly his intestines are removed, and sold to the manufacturers of foils. The skins made of old intestines are of no use. Even one-day-old intestines can not be used, because within a few hours they stiffen.
