I’ve taking a break from my kitchen this week so there has not been much baking going on here. However, I wanted to share some exciting news with you and wish everyone Happy Holidays. First, I hope everyone had a fabulous week enjoying the holiday season. I certainly did since I was away some place warm enjoying the sun, water, and cool drinks. But, I’m back now and looking forward to starting the new year. Hopefully, this will be a better blogging year than the last. Lol! I know, I keep saying that! As always, I am so thankful to have such wonderful readers, Twitter friends and Facebook fans and hope you will continue to stick with me. Happy holidays to all of you. Enjoy what’s left of 2011 and I wish you the best for 2012.
And now for the news…A few weeks ago I was contacted by the Hindustan Times to do a feature for DIY Christmas cookies in their city supplement for Delhi. I was completely swamped and unprepared with any ideas but the writer doing the feature was quite persistent and I knew this was not an opportunity to let go. So I did a redo on my chocolate nankhatai by making these colorful Christmas Pinwheel Nankhatai. For those of you that missed that post, naan khatai are Indian sugar cookies that are eggless and spiced with cardamom. The newspaper article features a step by step photo tutorial on how to make the Christmas pinwheel nankhatai you see here.
They have an e-paper edition and you can view the feature here. I’ve added the copy of the epaper here.
So there it is, my first published recipe in print! I can’t tell you how good it feels.
