Misri roti

Treat your loved ones with this traditional and lip smacking Recipe! The method of preparation is quite simple and if tried with love they come out excellent. The word misri means Crystalised sugar lumps and roti means it is made in a form of a roti. But I like to cut them in different shapes as it is easy to eat. I learnt this recipe from my mom she used to make it in a form of a roti. It is a very yummy treat for grown ups as well as the kids. it is also a nice activity for kids as they can help you in cutting into shapes and placing on the cookie sheet. It will keep for quite some time if stored in dry airtight containers.

Making time: 30 mins
Makes: 20- 25 pieces (small)

1 cup plain flour (maida)
1 cup sugar granulated
1/2 cup melted ghee (clarified butter)
1/2 tsp. cardamom seeds crushed
8-10 pistachios chopped
8-10 almonds chopped
20- 25 pieces of misri (crytalised sugar lumps) (optional)

1. Pre-heat the oven at 350*F
2. Mix together flour, sugar and cardamom.
3. Add melted ghee, and mix to hold together.
4. Spray some nonstick spray on the baking sheet.
5. Pat and shape into flat 1/2" thick round and cut into desired shapes with cookie cutter.
6. Take a piece of misri and stick it in the centre of the dough. You can add more if you like.
7. Bake in 350*F for 10 - 15 mins or until it is done.
8. Cook till light golden from bottom and edges.
9. Cool it on a cooling rack.
10. Garnish with almond and pistachios. 11. Serve warm or cooled.
