These Little Melt In Your Mouth Treats Sure Does Take Me Back To My Childhood…
Theyr called “Gnaanakatha” Or Ghee Biscuits.
They’re cute button like treats usually with a sultana pinched in the middle but today the kids wanted it to be crescent shaped to represent Eid so they can send it for their cousins…During this “Social Distancing Eid”
We also made a few of the button shaped cuties but with an almond instead Cz v have anti raisin kids…
Few simple ingredients & just comes together so quickly.

Step One Don’t forget to sift the dry ingredients together.This helps with a smooth result for the dough.
Step Two Mix the ghee in using your fingers to start forming the dough
Step Three Knead for a few minutes till you form a smooth yet slightly sticky dough.
Then make desired shape & place in a lined baking tray,& bake in a preheated oven @180’ for about 10-15 minutes max
They will increase slightly in size & they will not brown on top,but the bottom wil b lightly brown & that’s when you know it’s done!!!
DO NOT TOUCH !!! I REPEAT!!!
DO NOT TOUCH AS SOON AS IT IS OUT OF THE OVEN HOWEVER TEMPTED YOU MAYBE!!! They will crumble cz they harden as they cool…Patience is a Virtue!!!
After it is cooled down you can enjoy with a hot Cuppa before the kids get their hands on them!!
