These simple-to-make little biscuits work very well with a strong cup of coffee or some fresh mint tea. The flavor combination of cardamom, orange flower water, and roasted nuts is very emotive of the Middle East and conjures up images of spice markets, silks, and artifacts. These treats are delicious with a cream- or milk-based dessert such as panna cotta or Turkish rice pudding. You could use a different sort of nut such as pistachios or hazelnuts, and cinnamon or nutmeg can be substituted for the cardamom.
– 2 cups flour.
– 2½ tbsp cold unsalted butter, cut into chunks.
– 1 tbsp orange flower water.
– 2⁄3 cup almonds, cooked in a small amount.
– of oil until golden; drained and then ground.
– 3 green cardamom pods.
– sugar to taste.
– vegetable oil for deep-frying.
Step 2: Using a pestle and mortar, first grind the roasted almonds, then the cardamom pods. Mix the almonds, cardamom, and some sugar together, and toss the fried dough pieces in the mixture until coated. Serve warm or at room temperature, as a snack or with coffee or tea, or alongside a milk or cream dessert such as good-quality ice cream or a custard.
