  • ½ cup Butter (115g)
  • ⅔ cup Icing Sugar
  • 1-2 tbsp Milk
  • 1 tsp rasmalai essence 
  • 1 tbsp Dried rose petals
  • ½ cup Melted white chocolate
  • Crushed dryfruits (almonds,cashew,akhrot)
  • Dried rose petals


  1. Cream butter and sugar together until light and fluffy.
  2. Add flour and dryfruit  powder. Fold them in. Bind together the dough using milk – add 1 tsp at a time, and add more as required till you have a soft dough that can be rolled into a ball.wp-16052365422126666414947563116844.jpg
  3. Add the rasmalai essence  and edible rose petals (crushed). Massage them into the dough.wp-16052365424165756568417500822562.jpg
  4. Cover with a cling wrap and refrigerate for atleast 30 minutes.
  5. Pre-heat the oven to 170°C.
  6. Dust the surface with flour, and roll the dough to ¼ inch thickness. These cookies don’t spread too much so don’t make them too thick. Use a cookie cutter to cut the shapes. Alternatively, roll individual balls with your hands and flatten them.
  7. Transfer the cookies to a lined tray leaving a small gap between each cookie. If the cookies are soft, use a spatula to pick them and place them on the tray.wp-16052365426158791218108661151425.jpg
  8. Bake at 170°C for 15-20 minutes or till the edges are golden brown.
  9. Let the cookies cool on a wire rack then dip in melted chocolate and garnish with rose petals and chopped pistachios. Store in an airtight container.


  1. You could dip the whole cookie, half of it, or even just pour the melted chocolate over the cookie with a spoon. 
  2. White chocolate goes really well with the cookies. However, dark or milk chocolate will taste just as good. Simply dip the cookies in melted chocolate and place over a wire rack to allow the chocolate to cool and harden.
  3. If you’re using nuts or rose petals as a garnish, you need to sprinkle them immediately after dipping in the chocolate while the chocolate is still liquid and hasn’t set.
