Diwali Celebration

Diwali celebration

Happy Diwali!!!!!

Its called the festival of lights, one of the biggest Hindu celebration. The fun begins weeks before this auspicious day, when we start shopping new clothes for everyone in the family. The streets are lite with lanterns and fireworks, prayers, offerings and of course yummy sweets and fried savory item.

This year I made 2 sweets, Boondi ladoos and an Cashew coconut rolls. Crispy fried Murruku is every South-Indian’s favorite savory.

Sweet and Savory

Cashew coconut roll recipe

Cashew coconut roll is my adaptation of the seven cup cake or 7-cup burfi recipe. Instead of chick-pea flour and plain milk, I used cashew and milk powder.


  • Roasted Cashew powder -1 cup
  • Fresh grated coconut – 1 cup
  • Sugar 2 1/2 cups
  • Milk powder – 1 cup
  • Chickpea, besan flour – 3/4 cup
  • Milk – 1/2 cup to melt ingredients
  • Ghee – 3/4 cup
  • Cardamom powder 1/2 spoon

Simple procedure

Mix all ingredients in a heavy bottom pan on medium flame. Stir continuously until it melts and bubble.

The mixture will stop sticking to the pan, grease a plate and set aside to pour out at the right time.

Slice it into squares or roll it into bite-sized cashew-coconut rolls or balls.

    I am loving this toasted cashew in this recipe, very unique! I have to try it! Since I am a big dessicated coconut “Nut”, it’s all icing on the cake so to speak!
