Mangalorean Cashew Macaroons

on April 28, 2015

Weekends always come with a chance of baking to me 😉 I just love baking, more than cooking infact and this time it was cashew macaroons, A humble attempt at replicating the wonderful cashew macaroons which we get in “Mangalore, City bakery”, Well the shapes came out really funny, but the taste was spot on 😉 Maybe next time I can work on the shape too, coz am definately gonna make these beauties again 😀

Ingredients 

  • Egg white: 1 (at room temperature)
  • Finely powdered sugar: 1 cup
  • Unsalted cashew nuts: 1 and a 1/4 cup
  • Cardamom powder: 1/4 to 1/2tsp
  • Baking powder: 1/4tsp

Method

  • Chop the cashew nuts coarsely.
  • Pre heat the oven at 120 deg C
  • Separate the egg white from the yellow making sure there are no traces of egg yolk.
  • In a mixing bowl beat the egg white stiff, so as to form peaks. The peaks should be stiff enough so as to not drop.
  • Add the powdered sugar to the egg white, little at a time beating well. Continue till all the sugar is used up.
  • Beat in the cardamom powder.
  • Gently fold in the chopped cashew nuts.
  • Line a baking tray with parchment paper and drop spoonfuls (approximately 1tbsp) of the mixture.
  • Try and use the same amount in each spoonful. The shape does not matter.
  • Place the tray in the lower rack of the oven and bake for 20 to 25 minutes.
  • Remove once done and cool them, Store in an air tight container.
