  3. Next, divide the pistachio dough stuffing into 2 portions and roll each portion into a thin log. Similarly, roll the other portion of pistachio dough stuffing as well.
  4. Now place 1 pistachio log over the cashew sheet.

  2. You need to make a fine powder of cashews, but do not powder cashews too much, or else they will turn into a paste. So keep a close eye when grinding cashews.
  3. Pass the cashew powder through a sieve to make sure that there are no big pieces in the cashew powder. Straining the powder would make the powder-fine and your rolls would turn out smoother.
