Choco Friendship Crackers


1 cup shortening

1/2 cup packed brown sugar

1/3 cup honey

2 cups whole wheat flour

1/2 tsp. baking powder

salt to taste

To make the chocolate glaze

1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips

1 Tbsp shortening


Heat oven to 375 degrees. Beat 1 cup of shortening, the brown sugar and honey in a large bowl with an electric mixer on medium speed or mix with a spoon. Stir in flour, baking powder and salt (This is where I would add the cocoa for the chocolate cookies). Roll half of the dough at a time 1/8″ thick on lighty floured cloth-covered surface. Cut into 2 1/2 inch rounds or squares. Place 1″ apart on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 7-9 minutes or until edges are firm. Cool 1-2 minutes; remove from cookie sheet to wire rack. Cool completely.

To glaze – melt the chocolate chips and shortening over low heat stirring occasionally. Drizzle over the cookies.

Baked Macaroni Pals


1 cup elbow macaroni (about 100 grams)

1-1/2 slightly heaped tablespoons butter, preferably unsalted

1 -1/2 tablespoons flour

1-3/4 cups milk

salt – to taste

pepper to taste

3 tablespoons grated cheese

1 capsicum

1 tomato


In the larger pan, place 2-3/4 cups water, 3/4 teaspoon salt and a few drops oil. Boil the mixture before dropping the macaroni. Time 6 minutes. Then pour the macaroni into the strainer and hold it under cold, running water for a few seconds. Keep aside. Melt the butter and add it to the sieved flour mix it so that the flour loses its raw smell. Now add milk while stirring the flour mixture. Take care so that lumps are not formed. Start heating again as soon as a smooth paste is made. Raise temperature to the boiling point. Stir from time to time till the sauce thickens. The whole process will take 3 minutes. Take the sauce off the fire. Stir in two tablespoons of the cheese. Now cut the stem off the capsicum. Scoop out the seeds and ribs with your hand. Cut three slices off it so you get pretty circular shapes. Chop the rest of the capsicum into tiny bits. Also slice the tomato into rings. Mix the capsicum with the macaroni and pour it into the oven proof dish. Pour the sauce over. Mix well. Smoothen the top. Arrange the capsicum and tomato slices on top. Sprinkle over the reserved cheese. When you are ready to eat preheat the oven to 180 degrees. This will take 10-20 minutes. Place the macaroni in and bake 20 minutes or till the top is golden brown and the macaroni is bubbling hot.
