Or shall we call these slightly tart, citrus flavored flaky little delights crackers instead?
These slightly tart, citrus flavored soft flaky little delights come from Yamuna's Table by Yamuna Devi. This alluring collection of more than 200 thoughtful and unique recipes from a proven master of traditional Indian cuisine has occupied my attention of late. Inspired by the flavors of India, Ms. Devi experiments with ingredients common to North America and beyond. All of the selections are straightforward, but her elegant serving suggestions make this an essential cookbook for wowing dinner guests, yet perfectly suited as a book for everyday cooking.
A big fat post-it-note has been attached to this recipe for the past few weeks. Savory treats are most decidedly a weakness of mine, so I made a choice and nibbled on it with pleasure too. Soft and flaky with gentle lime and spice, these were perfect!
Slightly adapted from the original recipe to suit my cheesier, zestier preferences, I substituted heavy cream for skim milk, increased the amount of lime juice and cayenne and added a dash of cumin besides.
