Announcing Cookie Mela & Cookbook Giveaways!

After the mind blowing Indian Thali Mela, I needed some time to just breath. I am yet to complete collecting details for the eBook I promised. So that's another interesting thing that can happen soon.

I realized I was late when I started getting emails on the next mela. So here's the next one. I thought making cookies will be an exciting thing, considering schools reopened in some parts of the world, while some closed down for vacation.

So you are invited to send in all sorts of Biscuits, Cookies, Shortbread etc

According to Wiki, a basic biscuit (cookie) recipe includes flour, shortening (often lard), baking powder or soda, milk (buttermilk or sweet milk) and sugar. Common savory variations involve substituting sugar with an ingredient such as cheese or other dairy products. Shortbread is a popular biscuit in the UK.
And when it comes to Indian versions, some are not actually baked, they are even deep fried as in Thekua.

From now till July 31st, cook/bake anything that is a Cookie/ Biscuit, pack them to me!

There is a grocery store that is not too far from my home and every once in a while when my husband feels I need a pick me up he will buy the white chocolate cherry cookies. They are soft and moist and so so good.
I guess it is the love my husband shows for me.

suhani said...

hi srivalli..i m really looking forword to your cookie mela..the cookies i like the most are the semolina cardamom cookies..they are just too good..the very first bite indulges you into the crispiness of semolina and then you get a tinge of cardamom flavour to your tongue..i love it too much.. so much that i cant get enough of it..also i dont have account on any of the above mentioned sites so i cant link you..sorry for that..

suhani said...

hi srivalli..looking forword to your cookie mela..i like semolina cardamom cookies a lot as the crispiness of semolina and the flavour of cardamom blends really well..also i dont have account in any of the above sites so i may not be linking you.m sorry for that..
