Orange cookies.....

This is my very first attempt in the world of cookies....the main reason I choose to make these orange cookies is they are super simple yet different to plain cookies.



Orange:1nos(grate the outer skin and extract jucie fron the half fruit)



All purpose flour:2cups(u could use self raising flour too just omit baking powder & salt)

Salt :1/2 tsp

Baking powder:11/2 tsp
Orange food colour:2 drops(optional)


Mix flour,salt and baking flour keep it aside.

In a large bowl slightly beat egg and add juice,sugar,grated skin and butter beat until light n fluffy

Now add dry ingredients and food colour ,knead it in to dough.

Roll it with a rolling pin and cut in to desired shapes with cookie cutter.Continue the process until u use up all the dough.

Lay them on baking sheet and bake until edges turn slight brown,takes about 15 to 20 min.

cool them on cooling rack and they are ready to eat.

Celery chutney where did i get this this thought of making chutney with celery.....I brought this celery home in the intension of making some salad which i never did and the clelery was laying down for a while and I wanted to use it....That is when this recipe of clelery tokku striked in my mind which i saw some where a year ago.But I have failed to note the recipe that i have used lil' bit of my imagination n made this chutney which turned out quite here goes the recipe..
celery:3stalks(cut in to 1inch pieces)
corriander seeds:1/2 tbsp
Dry red chillis:6nos.(depends on your spice level)
tamarind paste:wee bit of it
Salt:to taste
Procedure:Heat half of the oil in a pan and add chlliesand corriender seeds and roast it and keep it aside.
In the same pan add rest of the oil and cook celery until it becomes soft and changes its colour(becomes lil'bit pale).
Let it cool and drind it into a corse past by adding tamarind and salt.Enjoy it with rice and ghee(clarified butter).
