OK…I came up with my own name for this. I tried looking for this recipe on the blogging world but without any luck. I absolutely love these biscuits and the first time I had them was a S’s G’Mom’s place. My common sense prevailed and I decided to take the recipe from her.
So here’s the recipe:
Whole Grain Wheat Flour – 1 Mug (A Coffee Mug)
Dessicated Coconut – 1 Mug
Sugar – 3/4 Mug
Ghee/Unsalted Butter – 1/2 Mug
Oil for Deep Frying
Milk – For mixing ingredients together. Add as appropriate. If you have a food processor, add milk very carefully; tiny amount should do.
Add Wheat Flour, Dessicated Coconut, Sugar and Ghee to a bowl and mix well.
Once butter melts completely, knead the flour by adding milk.
Once it gets to chapathi flour consistency, roll it out. Since sugar caramelises during the process, when you roll out the flour, it will not come out as regular chapathi flour does but it doesn’t matter.
Now, cut the rolled out flour into any shape and fry them till they turn light brown (I use a pizza cutter and prefer rectangular shaped biscuits. It usually depends on the size of your kadai). Do not leave them for long as they tend to fry very quickly.
Store them away. They will last fora few months.
Since the cut flour pieces tend to fry very quickly, it is advisable to completely cut the rolled out flour into desirable shapes and then concentrate on frying them. It’s much easier this way….personal experience 🙂
Today is S’s Birthday and I am terribly busy. I baked a Banana and Walnut cake for him yesterday 😀 Yipppeeeeee. This will be just my second time…and it has turned out really good! The first time round..I baked a chocolate cake at a friend’s place…which was equally yummyy, but then she was guiding me each step of the way. I am thankful to Pras who not only helped me bake the cake but also for keeping the surprise a secret from S. He did not have a clue what was happening last night. ROFL! Somehow, I had this feeling that he knew what I was upto…but he didn’t!!!! I am sure he didn’t think I would bake a cake…I am the one who will order 😀 But the satisfaction I got after the end result was fantastic. It’s different…buying a cake and baking one. All your love, effort and hardwork goes into the one you bake…so it tastes even more delicious 🙂 I also made Vada with Coconut and Dried Red Chilli Chutney (the credit of which goes to Pras again) for breakfast, Chapala Pulusu (Smoked Salmon Fillet Curry-the credit of which goes to my mom) with Plain Rice for lunch, and probably S’s fav Peri Peri Chicken Indian Stylefor Dinner. Recipes will be coming up soon 🙂
Yup…the cake I baked 😀 and don’t worry…S is not 10 😀 There was no space to insert any more candles and looking at the cake…you can also say that I am not very good at decorating it either 😀
