Recipe fun – What?

Already instagrammed < is that a verb?> a photo of some of our protein snacks from last night’s practice – we are working with Kuljit Sodhi again of Galitcha for an upcoming show – more details on that when we get them!

From last spring’s Festival of India promo at Ottawa Public Library!

So I, @Halyma decided we needed cookies – as did Mirka, who brought yummy oatmeal cookies, but I was working from home and able to whip up these!

1 egg

1 cup unsalted, unsweetened peanut butter

1/2 cup sugar < I used icing sugar- it was all I had>

Mix it all up, and make tiny little teaspoon sized balls on cookies sheet – use half the batter for the plain golden ones.  I get 24 little balls on my cookie sheet.

Flatten with a fork dipped in water and bake at 325 degrees until golden – about 8-10 minutes.

While waiting for the first sheet to bake, I decided to get creative:

add to remaining  cookie dough

3 tablespoons of cocoa

1/4 cup rolled oats

1 teaspoon ginger powder

1 teaspoon cinnamon

and bake these the same way.

Yield: 48 tiny little cookie bites and the spicy ones were more popular.

November 14 – busy night for fundraisers!

This wonderful Diwali season has already allowed us the chance to dance at 2 great events, and  this weekend we are shifting into Multicultural Fundraising event mode!

Bollywood For Fun is honoured to be part of the  early Saturday evening…and then we head to Gatineau for the Oasis Helping Hafla < which is SOLD OUT!>

Bollywood For Fun is always proud to help out fundraising and charity events – and to add some colourful energy to any corporate and personal events!
