Fried Cookies with Ginger Pineapple Glaze



Fried Cookies with Ginger Pineapple Glaze

Today's recipe is deep fried cookies. There are different types of deep fried cookies, pastry doughs and sandwich cookies.The inspiration for this one is Fried Chinese ginger cookies.I love them because they have a sweet crispy outside and you can try different flavors.This cookie has the enticing ginger and pineapple flavor. The cookie dough is fried and then glazed with a ginger- pineapple sugar syrup. You can also use honey instead of sugar for the syrup.Fry and served warm with the glaze and it is a delicious treat.

Ingredients

All purpose flour- 2 cup
Egg-2
Baking powder- 1/2 tsp
Ginger powder- 1/2 tsp
Fresh ginger juice- 1 tsp
cinnamon powder- a pinch
Salt- a pinch
Sugar- 2 tbs

For the glaze
Sugar- 1 cup
water- 1/2 cup
Ginger juice- 1tsp
Pineapple chopped or crushed- 1/2 cup
Cinnamon powder- 1/3 tsp

Oil for frying


 Mix flour, ginger powder, cinnamon powder salt, sugar and baking powder. Make a well in the center. Add beaten egg and ginger juice and mix.Sprinkle little by little of water and knead into a dough. Do not over knead,but it should be a smooth dough that can be easily rolled. Allow this to rest for about half an hour.

Lightly flour your working board and take small balls of the dough. Using a rolling pin flatten it and cut into desired shapes using a cookie cutter. Heat oil in a pan in medium flame. Gently slide the shaped dough into the oil. It will slowly rise to the surface of the oil and will puff up. Fry on both sides till it becomes golden brown and drain into paper towel. Continue to fry in batches.
To make the syrup mix in pineapple,sugar, ginger juice,cinnamon and water. Mix and allow the sugar to dissolve. Reduce the flame to medium and allow the sugar syrup to thicken and reach one thread consistency. Switch off the flame and when it cools down a bit drizzle it over the fried cookies. Enjoy!

Try this..
Hope you will all enjoy!

Stuffed Squid

Stuffed Squid
Squid is a unique and yummy sea food delicacy that can be prepared in a variety of ways. Squid rings or fried calamari's is a the most popular and is a great appetizer. Squid is staple in many seafood restaurants. It is also popular street food in several south Asian countries.Squid is enjoyed in the coastal belt of south India especially in Kerala and Tamilnadu.In Kerala squid is known as koonthal or Kanava.

Squid is one of my favorite sea foods-roast squid, deep fried,stir fried or squid curry-I love them all.Squid has a mild flavor and gentle sweetness and marries well to any flavor and taste of your choice. Squid can be stuffed before roasting or frying,its tubular body called mantle is great for stuffing. You can get creative with the stuffing- use prawns,fish,pork, cheese, bread crumbs,olives,rice or anything of your choice.

Today's recipe is a stuffed squid with spicy prawn filling.The dish is inspired by a similar preparation from the book Classic H…

Kerala Fish Curry ( Mulaku Curry)

Kerala's Red Fish Curry or the Mulaku Charu is hot and spicy fish curry. Its rich color is from Kashmiri chilly powder which is less spicy when compared to regular chilly powder.

Fish curry and rice or fish curry and kappa pukku is the absolute comfort food for every malayali. The state is blessed  with long coast line, backwaters and lake and Keralites are great fish eaters. Red fish curry tastes awesome and you can find this type of fish curry everywhere-in  homes, restaurants,toddy shops or boat houses for tourists. Even though this curry is staple for the malayalis, you will still find a lot of regional variation to this recipe. Each region and each home has its own adaption of fish curry.

The tamarind used in this recipe is Kudampuli/ Gambooge/Malabar tamarind. You can find this in abundance in Central and North Kerala. This souring agent has lots of medicinal value and helps aid digestion.
Malayalis love adding coconut to every dish, but this curry is an exception. But it…
