  • On a bowl of hot water, place the metal pan with rewadi mix while you roll them.This will keep the mix warm while you make the praline.
  • Roll the rewadi and flatten them.

Make small batches of rewari as the mixture needs to be hot/warm while you are shaping them, else if they solidify , its not that easy to reheat them and mold them again.
