Though I wish to cater to all kinds of palates, you’ll chiefly find the Indian cuisine here wherein the Malabari (North Kerala) style will predominate as that’s where my roots, trunk and branches are.

Cooking Instructions

HIDE IMAGES
Step 1
To a bowl, sift All-Purpose Flour (1 cup), Corn Flour (1/2 tablespoon), Baking Powder (1/4 teaspoon) and Salt (1 pinch). To this add Ground Cardamom (1/4 teaspoon) and Ground Nutmeg (1/2 teaspoon) and combine well.
Step 2
To another bowl, add Unsalted Butter (1/2 cup) and Powdered Confectioners Sugar (1/2 cup).
Step 3
Using a spatula mix butter and sugar until light.
Step 4
To this, add flour mixture.
Step 5
Slowly using your hands combine well and make a dough. If the dough is too dry, add Milk (1 tablespoon) at a time.
Step 6
Cover with a cling film and let the dough rest for 30 minutes
Step 7
Preheat the oven at 300 degrees F (150 degrees C).
Step 8
Place a parchment paper or aluminium foil on the tray and roll out small lemon sized balls out of the dough. (I made 16 cookies).
Step 9
You should roll the balls well without any cracks and place the balls on the tray. Leave some space between each ball.
Step 10
Place an Almonds (to taste) on each cookie and slightly press the nut on to the dough ball.
Step 11
Place the tray in the oven and bake for 20 minutes. Keep watching your cookie. It should not change color.
Step 12
Once done take the cookie tray out of the oven and let it cool for some time.
Step 13
Transfer the cookie on to a cooling tray and let the cookie cool well.
Step 14
Serve with a cup of tea or coffee and enjoy! Store in an airtight container.
