Suji Cookies

Suji Cookies, an integral part of our Indian heritage, hold a special place in our hearts, especially during the festive season of Deepavali. Fond memories flood my mind of gathering with loved ones, rolling dough and delicately placing cherries atop each cookie, a cherished tradition that remains etched in my memory. Following the recent successes with Cayenne Chocolate Cookies, NyonyaPineapple Tarts, and Chinese Peanut Cookies, the allure of Suji Cookies was undeniable. With their humble yet captivating aroma, these buttery delights promise to evoke reminiscence and delight with every crispy, sweet bite.


1/4 cup ghee or butter

1/2 cup self-rising flour

1/4 cup semolina flour

1/4 cup castor sugar

Cherries, chopped


Combine all ingredients except for the cherries, blending them into a cohesive dough.

Roll the dough into small, uniform balls and place them on a baking tray lined with parchment paper, ensuring they are spaced apart.

Gently press a chopped cherry onto the top of each ball.

Bake the cookies at 160°C for approximately 20 minutes or until they achieve a golden-yellow hue.
