Almond Suji

25 Aug

Nothing is as sentimental and precious when one starts baking in the kitchen with the mother every Ramadhan. And with that, I feel so blessed that I still have this opportunity to be spending quality time with my mom. And I get to learn new things from her. Win-win situation 😉

I’ll be featuring the more traditional Raya goodies this time around. This is one of my mom’s favourite Raya goodies and she never fails to make these every Eid celebration. Something so simple but really, they do just melt in your mouth. She has modified the recipe along the years and has kept to this version for a long time now.

Ingredients

  • 300 gm fine sugar
  • 300 gm ghee (We use QBB Pure Ghee)
  • 400 gm plain flour
  • 200 gm almond powder
  • 1 egg + 1/4 teaspoon vanilla essence (for glazing)
  • Sliced almonds

Directions

Cream ghee with sugar until light and creamy. Fold in sifted flour and almond powder and mix until it forms a soft dough.

Roll small amounts of dough in between the palms and place them in the baking cups. Glaze the almond suji with the beaten egg and vanilla essence. Top it off with a sliced almond.

Bake in a preheated oven at 170 degrees Celsius for about 15 minutes until lightly brown.
