Atta Nankhatai | Eggless Whole Wheat Cardamom Cookies

I've always been intrigued by the great Indian festival cookie: the Nan Khatai. Soft, buttery, and flaky, it holds all the promises associated with a melt in the mouth shortbread cookie. Pair it with a a tall chai latte or sweet milky tea and its the ultimate pick me up after a long day!! Its also a great festive treat or holiday cookie to be enjoyed with family and friends after a hot supper.

Daring Cooks September 2011: Herbed Consomme with Spicy Tomato Brioche

The September 2011 Challenge to the Daring Cooks was to create a delicious consomme and serve it up with some brioche!! Loved it. I make soup really often at home and there is always a batch of vegetable based vegetarian soup stock in my refrigerator!!
