Cashew Fig Rolls || Kaju Anjeer Rolls (Refined Sugar Free, Dairy Free)

These Cashew nut rolls with a filling of dried figs (anjeer) and walnuts are absolutely delicious! They have a delicate rose flavoring that makes them super special and perfect for a Diwali treat! These are completely refined sugar free. Honey is the sweetener used in this recipe.

I have posted a Kaju Katli recipe before where I have used honey instead of refined sugar.  This recipe is a slight modification of this recipe where I am additionally using a filling made from dried figs and walnuts.

What are the steps for making this recipe?

  1. First we powder the cashew nuts using a food processor. There should not be any large coarse particles. Small coarse particles are ok.
  2. Next we make a dough using cashew nut powder, some coconut flour and hot water.
  3. Next we add some honey and rose flavor and continue to make a smooth dough.
  4. Refrigerate the dough for 15 -30 minutes.
  5. Next make the filling by cooking dried figs in ghee (or oil) and adding chopped walnuts. Blend the mixture in a food processor to get a coarsely powdered filling mixture.
  6. Spread the cashew nut dough onto a parchment sheet to form a 6 inch by 8 inch rectangle.
  7. Make a cut in the center of this rectangle so you have two 6 inch by 4 inch rectangles.
  8. Now place the filling on each rectangle along one side of it and then roll with the help of parchment paper to get a rolled up log. Place the rolled logs in the refrigerator for 1-2 hours.
  9. Take the logs out and using a sharp knife cut them into rolls of desired length.
