I had come across these biscuits on Sushma's Blog a few weeks back. She had made it from Anjum Anand's Book, 'Anjum's New Indian'. I noticed this book in the library on my last visit and I brought it home. It has some very wonderful recipes and I am planning to try some of them. To begin with, I tried these 'Easy Lime Biscuits'.
Sending this to Champa's Baking from a Book-Cookies and her weekly Bake Off.
1/2 cup AP Flour.
1/4 cup icing sugar.
3 tbsp ghee.
2 tsp lemon zest.
8 pistachios chopped.
4 cardamom pods crushed and powdered.
2 tbsp sugar candy cubes.
Preheat the oven to 180 C and grease a large baking tray.
Mix together the flour, icing sugar, ghee and the lemon zest. Work the dough until it comes together and is no longer crumbly. Roll the dough into 8 balls. Flatten into small discs in your palm. Sprinkle the cardamom powder, chopped pistachios and sugar candies evenly on the biscuits. Place the biscuits on to the prepared baking sheet and bake for 10 minutes until the edges starts colouring. Take out and cool the biscuits on the tray.
