Recipe for No-fuss Cookies

These no-fuss cookies make a good tea-time snack. And they even remain as good as newly-made for as long as a month. To make these you need; 2 cups of semolina, 1 cup of flour, 1/2 cup ghee, 1/2 cup chopped nuts ( I used almonds), a pinch of salt, water to bind the dough and oil for frying. In a large bowl mix the semolina and the flour, add the salt, sugar and the ghee. Keep on mixing till it becomes crumbly. Add the chopped nuts, mix, then add the water gradually. The mixture should not be too wet. Form into round or ovate shapes then fry in batches over a slow fire. Makes about 25 or so. While removing the cookies from the hot oil do not drain on paper as the sugar will stick and you'll end up with the unpleasant and near-impossible task of removing gooey bits of paper!

I love....

  • Dew on the bamboo, yellow flowers and orange sunsets, the sound of rain...the whistle of the wind, the rush of flowing water, the smell of woodsmoke, the crackle of a wood fire,the moon in all its phases.......
