Mundhiri Surul | Kaju Roll | Cashewnut Roll | Gluten Free and Vegan Recipe | Diwali Special Recipes

Mundhiri Surul | Kaju Roll

Hi Supermoms,

Wishing you all a very Happy Deepavali 🎇🎆

I had shared the above picture on my instagram stories and many of you have been asking me for the recipe. Well, I actually started with the plan of making Kaju Pista Roll  using my friend Uthra's recipe. But while grinding cashews, instead of dry powder that the recipe called for, it became oily and clumpy.  I added water and ground cashews into a paste and was wondering what to do with it .

My Mom In Law came to my rescue and told me that in our marriage functions, they serve a special sweet called 'Coin Mudhiri' or 'Mundhiri Surul'  that is served covered with butter paper and is slightly chewy than the regular cashew roll or the Kaju Katli.

This encouraged me to go ahead with the recipe that my friend gave, except that the cashews were ground with water.

The outcome was satisfying and everyone at home enjoyed it. Without further delay, let me share this two ingredient recipe with you all.

3. When the sugar melts completely add the cashew mixture .

Chef tip : This is the most important step as if you remove earlier, it will be very sticky and you will not be able to shape. So, cook till they is one non sticky lump.

9. Cut them into vertical strips and roll them.
Chef tip : You can grease your hands with ghee if required. 
Chef tip : Alternatively, you can pinch small portions of the dough , roll and flatten to make 'Coin Cashews' and pack them by placing it in a small piece of butter paper. You can use your creativity to shape and pack them.
