Instructions
  1. To begin making the Khajoor (Thekua) Recipe (Spiced Indian Cookies), in wide bowl mix whole wheat flour with semolina, baking soda, sugar, cardamom powder and fried cashew nuts. Mix well. Add ghee slowly and using your fingers mix gently until you get coarse crumbs.
  2. At this stage slowly add in milk and knead the dough gently with your fingers till you get thick firm khajoor dough. Cover the dough and allow it to rest for 15 minutes.
  3. Heat oil in a frying pan for deep frying. In the meanwhile, using your fingers knead the dough once again until you get smooth dough easy enough to roll.
  4. Apply ghee/oil to the rolling surface and rolling pin. Roll the dough to 1-inch-thick circle.
  5. Using a knife cut the Khajoor dough into diamond shapes. Alternatively, you can use cookie cutter to cut into desired shapes or can make pattern using fork.
  6. Deep fry the cut diamonds in the preheated oil, by dropping by one by one into hot oil.
  7. Fry till golden brown on both the sides on low heat for 2-3 minutes and then on medium till done. Once done, remove the Khajoor Cookies using a slotted spoon to remove excess oil. Cool and store in an airtight container.
  8. The Khajoor (Thekua) can stay fresh for 2-3 days when stored in a clean and dry airtight container.
