400 gms. plain flour
400 gms. wheat flour
200 gms. cashews, powdered coarsely
500 gms. sugar powdered
500 gms. solidified ghee dalda
1/4 tsp. baking powder
1/2 cups broken bits of cashews or halved cashews
1-2 tbsp. warm milk if required
If ghee if not solidified, then refrigerate for some time. Take in a large deep plate, run in circular direction with a flat palm.
Rub enough to make ghee white, fluffy and light. Sieve baking powder with flours. Add sugar to ghee and mix till light.
Fold in sieved flours, cashew powder till well mixed. Sprinkle some milk if dough seems too dry to hold. Mix with a light hand.
Do not knead too much or make dough gooey. Coarse dough will make better and lighter cookies. Shape in small rounds, arrange on baking sheet.
Preheat oven to 200oC, before putting in cookies. Press on cashew bit on each cookie in centre. Bake at 180oC for 7-8 minutes or till very light golden.
Remove, cool on a wire mesh or rack till completely cooled. Store in airtight container, in dry place.
Note: One may even add milk when rubbing ghee and sugar.
