MBP - Ma'moul (from Mahanandi)

I make several recipes from fellow bloggers (thanks everybody), but they usually disappear before I can take a picture. This time I resisted long enough to take pictures of the cookies - perfect starter to a wonderful evening.

I was fascinated by Ma'moul from the first time I read about it at Indira's Mahanandi. And Monthly Blog Patrolling gave me just the opportunity to try it out. It was delicious!

I made a few minor changes to the recipe to suit my pantry and taste. Instead of yeast and ghee in dough, I used baking soda and butter. For filling, I used honey and ginger for flavoring instead of sugar and rose water.

The rest of the process and the baking time remains the same. Since I didn't have the beautiful mold, I gave them a cookie shape. And it was a perfect starter and also a dessert for the Chinese New Year!

Read Indira's recipe here. Thanks Indira!

This is my entry for Monthly Blog Patrolling - Finger Food and Starters at My Khazana of Recipes.
