Polenta Cookies

You will need:

Ghee/Butter - 100 gms
Sugar - 100 gms (ground finely)
Salt - a pinch
Maida/Flour - 100 gms
Bombay Rava/Polenta - 100 gms ( ground finely)
Elaichi Powder/Cardamom - 1 tsp
Pistachio nuts - chopped

Cream sugar and ghee till the sugar is dissolved. Add the salt. Add maida, rava and elaichi powder. Knead well, yes, you must. Once it looks like a nice blob of cookie dough, pat yourself on the back. Then roll (not you, the dough silly!) and cut into small lemon sized balls.



Now, preheat your oven to a nice 150 C. Grease and flour a baking dish. Place the balls in the baking dish and flatten slightly. Sprinkle chopped pistachio nuts on the top. Lovely.

Pop the tray in, and bake for about 20-25 min until done. They should be slightly soft to touch but once cooled they will become hard. Good job!
