My love for Baingan Bharta has turned into a bit of an obsession lately; especially since I mentioned it in my recent post for blueberry salsa. This recipe is an adaption of the link I posted from Manjula’s Kitchen. But, it’s a tad different with the addition of yellow zucchini squash.
The entire dish comes together quite easily, although the mashing of the ingredients while cooking takes a little elbow grease. It works wonders to curb a desperate craving for Baingan Bharta, say… really late at night when everything is closed and the nearest Indian restaurant is 45 miles away.
A little unconventional maybe– but pretty delicious for a last minute pantry raid. What I like best about these cookies is their texture– they are thin and chewy and crispy all at once. The flavor is, well, flavorful!
Since Garam Masala varies— I cannot guarantee that your cookies will taste just like my photo. :) Mine was a blend of coriander, cardamom, black cumin, cinnamon, celery, black pepper, allspice, cloves and anise. Each one of those spices had a special place in these cookies. A touch of cocoa really tops them off. Spicy, sweet and kind of chocolatey- could you really ask for anything more?
