Kaju-Pista Tealight


Kaju Katli, Pista roll....Oh we need a change. We need something more elegant and sophisticated, something different from the regular stuff. I generally make Kaju Katli at home but on this Diwali, I thought of giving it a different look. My Kaju-Pista tealight is a twist on Kaju-Pista roll... I added pista filling to Kaju burfi and rolled it in a dice shape. Made the base with the same pista filling and added an almond on top. Garnished with silver foil(varq) and served in muffin cups. These tealights made my diwali celebration more colorful and bright...
