About Malaysian Suji Cookies Recipe

Suji cookies! If you read the name and conclude that these are simply colourful semolina/rawa cookies then you are wrong, like the way I was wrong at first! :D These cookies are not made of semolina/rawa, they are very popular Malaysian cookies. and the specialty of these cookies from other cookies is that it uses ghee/clarifies butter!

Malaysian Suji Cookies

Ingredients to make Malaysian Suji Cookies

  • all purpose flour – 1 cup
  • Baking powderb – 1/2 tsp
  • baking soda – 1/2 tsp
  • Icing sugar – 1/2 cup
  • Ground almond(with skin removed)- 1/2 cup

How to make Malaysian Suji Cookies

  1. Add the flour, baking powder , baking soda in a sieve and sift them all together. 2. Next, In a bowl add icing sugar, ground almond, ghee, salt, vanilla essence and mix it all together.
  2. Form a dough. It will be soft. Leave it aside for 20 minutes. Preheat oven to 110°C, line the baking tray with parchment paper.
  3. After 20 mins it’s time to add food colours. Divide the dough into three equal parts. I used blue yellow and pink food colours to 3 parts of the dough each. After adding colours, knead the dough to make the colours blend well.
  4. Pinch out a small ball of each coloured dough, place them together and roll into a cookie shape. You should see the marbled effect on the cookies now.
  5. Repeat with rest of the dough. Arrange them in the tray 2 inches apart. Bake it for 35-40 minutes or until cooked.
  6. Once done, cool the cookies completely, then coat them with castor sugar. 10. Store them in air tight container for about a week.
