For this month’s Blog Hop Wednesday, Radhika paired me with Smitha of kannada cuisine. She has a lot of authentic kannada recipes but I went through her bakes section. I saw these cookies and I knew I had to try them. I prepared these cookies twice. First I prepared it as per her instructions and my daughter loved them. But I was not satisfied because they came out flat and crumbly. I think I made a mistake while following the recipe. The next attempt, I did some changes in the recipe and the result was great. I used castor sugar instead of granulated sugar and used less vanaspathi. The cookies did melt in the mouth and full of coconut flavour.
