Ingredients for Cherry Cookies:

All Purpose Flour / Maida - 2 cups
Cornflour – 1 cup
Icing Sugar – 1 1/2 cup
Butter – 1 1/2 cup(in room temperature)
Vanilla essence - 2 tsp

Cooking Instructions:

Sift together maida, cornflour and icing sugar. Cream the butter with a fork and add the vanilla essence and beat well. Now add the flour mix to the butter mix 1 tbsp at a time and mix well thoroughly.

Add 1 tbsp milk if the mix is too dry or add a little of flour, if the mixture is little watery.

Make small balls out of the mix and flatten a bit and place a whole cherry in the middle. Grease the baking tray and spread a little of flour on that. Now arrange the cookies on the baking tray with a little distance between one and the other cookie since it will expand while it is getting cooked.

Preheat the oven to 150 degree centigrade and place the tray in the oven and bake for about 20 minutes or till golden brown. when it is cooked, remove the try from the oven and let it cool for about 10 minutes in the tray itself. Cookies are now ready to serve!

Actually i adopted this recipe from divyaskitchen blog and i thank her at this time.

Homemade Masala Chai Powder and Masala Chai

I always like to have my cup of Chai / Tea (a hot beverage) piping hot. I use to start my day daily with a cup of hot tea, which makes me brisk and bright. Masala Chai is a blend of aromatic spices with our normal tea. Masala Chai gives a warmth feeling, when we have it during rainy days or at winter time. Combination of spices and the amount of spices added in preparing masala chai powder depends upon individual taste. People who love the flavor of ginger in tea can add more ginger while preparing masala powder and who love cardamom flavor can add more number of cardamoms. So, everything is at their own discretion. When you have cold and congestion in nose, Masala Chai really gives a good relief and soothing feel.

Mushroom Peas Masala

Mushroom and Peas always a great combo, which tastes great when we add this combo in Biriyani’s, Pulao’s, Gravies and Curries. Mushroom Peas Masala / Dhingri Matar Masala / Mushroom Mutter Masala, Whatever it is called, all refers to the same thing, is a yummy and delicious gravy, which goes best with Roti’s, Naan’s, Phulka’s and Chapathis.

Homemade Ginger Garlic Paste

Ginger Garlic Paste recipe doesn’t require much introduction since everyone knows that it is very simple to do.It is purely and purely for beginners who has just now stepped into kitchen for cooking.  But, it is an essential ingredient in every home and most of our Indian dishes has Ginger Garlic Paste in it. Ginger Garlic Paste is cheaper in stores too. But, what made me to prepare Ginger Garlic Paste at home is, Preservatives and Adulteration, which is in most of the items we buy today from stores, which is unhealthy too. When I started to prepare Ginger Garlic Paste at home, I found the fresh flavor in it, which we cannot see in store bought bottles. Ginger and Garlic aids in digestion when we add in our food.
