Diwali damaka sweet is kaju rose roll in my house. Kaju pista rolls is very famous and most of you would have had it. Since I ran out of pista from my pantry, I made it in cashew itself. Dedication to my daughter, by making in rose flavour. My kid don't touch any other sweet other than cashew and milk sweet. When I made kaju katli, she just enjoyed. So didn't want to make it again.
