Finally after 18 days of waiting we have our kitchen counter and sink fixed. Yay!!! It almost felt like the ordeal was never going to end, but thankfully the Granite guys were really professional and they scheduled the installation as soon as they were fully functional. It feels great to be in my (almost) new kitchen.
Both the Katlis and the mixture were made when the kitchen was half functioning. I made these cookies after the kitchen got back to normal.
These Lime Cookies from “Anjum Anand’s New Indian” cookbook have been around the blogosphere for quite some time now. I finally decided to make them to celebrate my new granite kitchen counter top and Diwali. Recipe makes 8 cookies and was perfect since I was making them just for my mom and myself as my husband is away on business. Another plus about the recipe is the minimum number of ingredients and all of them are pantry staples which means they are also perfect as sweet treat for impromptu guests.
Oh.. almost forgot to mention that these cookies can be made on the stove which is great for anyone without an oven.
Mix flour, powdered sugar, melted ghee/ butter and 1tsp lime zest in a small bowl. After mixing mixture should come together. If it looks too crumbly, add 1-2tsp of milk to get it together.
Divide the mixture into 8-10 equal portions (I got 8 cookies) and roll them into smooth balls. Then flatten them with the palm, place on a baking sheet (if you like crispier cookies, flatten the cookies more).
Pound the remaining 1tsp lime zest with the sugar and sprinkle this evenly over the cookies.
Bake the cookies in the preheated oven for 8-10 minutes or until the bottoms are golden brown.
Alternately to cook on stove top, place 4 of the flattened cookies in a cold nonstick saute pan and cook them over low heat for 7-8 minutes. Once the base is golden, carefully flip the cookie with a spatula and cook the other side on very low heat until cooked but does not change color, around 4 minutes. Remove onto a plate and repeat with the rest of the cookies.
