This is the cookies I used to buy from Indian tea stall stored in a glass jar but much bigger in size. Suji Cookies is pleasantly buttery and slightly crunchy biscuit.
Made of clarified butter (ghee), flour and baking soda, it is quite simple to prepare. The only time needed is rolling them into tiny balls.
If you want softer cookies shorten your baking time and they will remain white even after baking. Feel free to roll them to your desired size but place them 1 in apart since they will expand a little while baking.
Yield : 35 cookies
1.5 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup + 1 tablespoon clarified butter
1/2 cup fine sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1.4 teaspoon salt
Melt clarified butter using low heat, cool.
Sift flour, soda and salt in a mixing bowl. Add in sugar.
Now combine clarified butter and flour mixture and forms into soft dough.
