Ginger and pistachio bits seen here - cardamom aroma whafts through the kitchen

Bright specks of green from the pistachios, chewy bits of candied ginger, heavenly aroma of cardamoms and the nutty taste of wheat – and no butter….. These biscotti go very well with coffee but if you want them Indian style, you must have them with chai.

Recipe for cardamom biscotti (makes 3-4 dozen):

  • 270 gm whole wheat pastry flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 3 large eggs
  • 70 g shelled pistachio
  • 70 g thinly sliced candied ginger (Trader Joe’s has an uncrystallized variety that is delicious)
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp crushed cardamom seeds

Beat the eggs and sugar together, add the remaining ingredients until a sticky dough forms. Refrigerate for 30 minutes as this will help shaping. Make into two logs and bake in a 350 F oven for 30-35 minutes until golden brown on top. Cool for 10-15 minutes before cutting into thin slices about 1/4 inch thick. Bake further for 8-10 minutes without crowding. You may need to use more than one cookie sheet to accommodate all the biscotti. Let cool completely before storing.
