This recipe I conjured up from my simple and elegant cookies recipe, NanKhatai which is our firm favourite and from this recipe later on I conjured up Hazelnut,Buckwheat and Honey cookies. which I posted before  this recipe.

You will need :-

  • One tbsp cardamom and allspice powder
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1\4 tsp bi co soda
  • 2 tablespoon flavorless oil 
  • Little milk if needed
  • 1 cup caster sugar maybe more

Dry Roast the amaranth flour for 3-4 minutes in a pan.
Cream ghee and sugar until you get very fluffy mixture.
Add all the dry ingredients and oil into creamy mixture and bind into a dough.
If needed add milk little by little.
Preheat oven to gas mark 3-4.
Make small balls and slightly flatten the balls.
Bake in pre heated oven for 7-8 minutes.
Change the position of the tray in the oven.
Bake further 7-8 minutes.
