Rose Cookies

 This Rose Cookie  is also known as Gulaabi poolu/ Roja Poolu and is very famous in Vijayawada  and Hyderabad places in India.I ate these Rose cookies a lot during the Christmas Festival Season distributed from my Classmates and from My Favourite Miss Sumithra  Vinodhini .People often used to prepare for the Christmas Festival and for any other occasions.Even marks as a very special snack item for the Pot lucks. Kids can easily attract to these special cookies which are not available in the bakery and sweet shops .

Rose cookies are made easily when the "Rose Cookie " instrument or mould is available .We can make this Sweet Cookie to a Spicy Rose by adding the Chillipowder.In this recipe,the ratio of flours are same to sweet and hot but the adding of water or coconut milk & egg or baking powder is of our own choice.For the Last year Christmas 2008,in the Torrance,one of my Friend Anitha shared this cookies and her recipe .Soon,I remembered my past days eaten from my friends.From her  ,I am able to know this delicious cookie and helped me to make easier.I thanks to Anitha for sharing her recipe and here goes the description.

  • Take the Maida & Wheat flour, sieve it place in a bowl add the eggs, sugar, salt & keep mixing using the coconut milk little at a time to make a fine smooth batter like for Dosas' - keep aside for atleast 30 minutes.
  •  Take a wok /Kadai/ pan, pour the oil kept for deep frying place on heat, now place the mould into the oil & keep it immersed when the oil is very hot.
  • Remove mould from the oil & lightly dip half way only into the batter  & put it back into the hot oil pan.
  • Wait for a second & start shaking the mould, the Cookie will leave the Mould -fry the cookie on both sides till golden brown .
  • Remove & drain then let it cool, Continue making the cookies with the remaining batter.
  •  Place the Cookies in an air-tight container and enjoy !!

  • You can also keep two cooking pans of oil on the gas and makes easier to dip the mould in one pan and the other pan to fry the cookies.
  • Cookies are made only with the Maida flour also and adjust the rice flour instead of wheat flour if you feel sticky to release from mould.
  • Use fork or pointed long Needle instrument to release the cookie from the mould to turn.
  • Be careful while shaking the mould in the oil to avoid overflow of oil.
