The festive season isn’t all about ladoos and jalebis, it’s got some fantastic healthy options as well. I’ve been experimenting with some vegan mithais in my kitchen and thought I’d share this recipe with you all!
A simple 5 minute recipe with just 6 clean ingredients and so so yummy!
1/2 cup pistachio (powdered)
1/4 cup desiccated coconut powder
1/4 cup dried dates powder
12 -15 saffron strands
1.5 tbsp cashew cream
1 pinch salt
Add extra broken pistachios and saffron strands for garnish
Add 1 tbsp hot water to the cashew cream, mix well and soak the saffron in it.
Mix all the other ingredients thoroughly.
Once the saffron is infused in the cream, add this to the powder mixture and mix well to make a soft (but not sticky) dough. Add more water if needed.
Roll this dough out to half inch thickness. Sprinkle the broken pistachio and saffron strands on top and press down such that they are flattened on the surface.
Cut into squares or diamonds.
Storage – Refrigerate after a day. Stays fresh up to a week. Give this recipe a try and let me know if you enjoyed it!
