Almond cashew pista slice...

I wanted to make some sweet which does not use sugar.. I have used honey instead. My FIL had brought a big bottle of honey from his native. Home made.. bees harvested at his brother's house. Amazing for a city bread girl like me!!!!

This is the first time I am tasting home made honey.. The smell is heavenly :) Extracted a promise from my FIL that he will take me to see the bee harvesting next time we are in that area!!!!

Here is the recipe for Almond, cashew pista slice:

Ingredients :
For the Badam roll:
1/4 cup almonds blanched, peeled and powdered
2 tablespoons honey
¼ tsp elaichi powder

For the Cashew roll:
1/4 cup cashew
2 tablespoons honey
¼ tsp elaichi powder

For the Pista roll:
1/4 cup pistachios
2 tablespoons honey
¼ tsp elaichi powder

a few saffron strands
1 tbsp milk

Method :
For Badam roll:
Combine all the ingredients in a bowl and knead gently into a dough.

For the Cashew roll:
Soak the cashewnuts in warm water for 30 minutes.
Drain all the water out and blend the cashewnuts to a fine paste in a mixer. Keep aside.
Mix in the honey and cardamom.

For the Pista roll:
Soak the pistachios in warm water for 30 minutes.
Drain all the water, peel the pistachios and blend them to a fine paste in a mixer. Keep aside.
Mix in the honey and cardamom

Melt the saffron in the milk, add it to the cashew dough and stir well.
Roll out the almond dough in to a chapati
Roll out the cashew dough and put it on top of the rolled out almond.
Roll out the pista dough and place it on the above.
Drizzle a spoon of honey on top
Fold in half. freeze it for 1/2 an hour.
Cut into slices.
