1 teaspoon vanilla essence
1 egg, beaten
Pistachio nuts or
Strawberry jam as required

Add enough ghee to combine the mixture, you’ll need less than a cup

Shape into little round balls and flattened slightly onto a baking tray
Lightly and carefully brush each biscuit with egg wash

Do not overcook the biscuits as it’s a very delicate biscuit and will crumble easily.
