Instructions
  1. Sieve the maida, besan, rava, baking soda and keep aside.
  2. In a bowl, mix together the ghee, sugar and saffron powder until well combined. To this add the dry ingredients and gently combine until you get a smooth dough.
  3. Pinch off 30 portions from this dough. Roll each portion between palms to get a smooth ball.
  4. Flatten this ball slightly and place on a baking sheet. Keep some distance ~ 2cm between the cookies as they will expand as they bake.
  5. Preheat oven at 180°C.
  6. Meanwhile, roughly chop the pistachios and press a pinch of chopped nuts over each cookie.
  7. Bake in the preheated oven for 20 minutes. Cookies will harden further on cooling.
  8. Remove, cool and pack in airtight container. Garnish with a strand of saffron before serving if desired.
