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!

Meat Ball Curry/Kofta Curry

Meat Ball Curry/Kofta Curry
Today's recipe is a delicious meat ball/ kofta curry which goes well with rice, pulao or naan. If you want to try something different for dinner try this kofta curry. This is a great dish to serve when you have friends over for dinner. Kofta curry is definitely worth a try-juicy and tender meat balls are cooked in a  rich tangy mildly spiced tomato based gravy enriched with aromatic spices.

The first time I tried the kofta curry was in Delhi and it was creamy  rich curry with lots of fresh cream and the meat balls were cooked over charcoal for a smoky flavor. So if you want that authentic flavor try barbecuing the meatballs before adding to the gravy. I wanted to try my own version of kofta curry and added cashew nut paste instead of cream and my family enjoyed for dinner with vegetable pulao and naan .For a richer, creamier texture you can also add cream. You can use minced mutton of beef or even try a vegetarian version of this curry with mashed pota…
