Preparation Time : 10 mins
Baking Time : 15 to 17 mins
Makes : 20 cookies

Ingredients:

All Purpose Flour / Maida - 1 cup / 120 grams
Ghee / Clarified Butter - 1/2 cup / 125 ml melted
Sugar - 1/4 cup / 50 grams Powdered ( use as per your taste )
Salt - 1/4 tsp
Vanilla Essence - 1 tsp ( Optional )

(Tip: Easy way to measure is using the same cup to measure all the ingredients)

Method:

Preheat the oven to 180 Degree C / 360 Degree F.

Take melted in a bowl. Add in powdered sugar, salt and vanilla. Mix this well so everything is combined.

Now add in the flour and mix well to form into a soft dough. 

Take a spoonful of portion and shape into ball.

Arrange this in a foil lined tray. They can be place pretty close before it wont spread a lot.

Now bake this for 15 to 17 mins till the cookies is done. Remove them from oven and allow to cool down.

Once they are cooled store them in air tight container.

Enjoy with a cup of chai or milk.

Notes:

1) If the dough looks too dry, add a tsp of milk. Dont add too much.
2) This cookies may look soft when you take out of the oven. But as they cools down they get harder.
3) Cool them completely before storing them in air tight container.
4) Instead of adding ghee you can add melted butter.
5) If you like cardamom flavour, skip vanilla and add cardamom powder.
6)You can add chopped nuts into the mixture too.

  1. Hi Aarthi,

    I am a great fan of your blog "yummy tummy" and have tried some of your receipes which turned out well.

    In this receipe, you have mentioned ""Now bake this for 15 to 17 mins till the cookies is done"

    Since I am new to baking, please clarify if I have to preheat the oven to a certain temperature and then set the timer. I am having Samsung microwave oven.

    Please elaborate . Thanks for your time.

  2. Hi Aarthi,

    I am the latest follower of your site. I prepared most of the Diwali delicacies following your recipes and all turned great !!!! Thanks for the lovely recipes.

    The ghee cookies are called Narayan Katar in Mangalore. I would love to prepare this but I want to use a normal microwave. Is this possible?

    Thanks,
    Anuradha

  8. I was craving some crunchy cookies, so I made them today. The dough was fun to roll - so soft to touch and completely non-sticky. But my cookies did spread in the oven - they were big and flat at the end. Maybe the dough needed more flour? I wish they were round and plump, like yours. Still delicious, though.
