Cornmeal Cookies Procedure
cookies with cornmeal

  1. Sieve wheat flour, cornmeal, and baking powder.
  2. Add almond powder. Mix.
  3. Mix curd, oil, ghee in a separate bowl. Whisk well until smooth.
  4. Add fennel seeds to the flours.
  5. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ones.
  6. Rub with your hands. Do not knead.
  7. Add 2 tbsp of milk to collect the dough. If needed, add 1 or 2 more. In my case, 3 tbsp of milk was sufficient. We do not need a sticky dough. It should not be too soft, nor too hard.
  8. Make 2 or 3 logs of the dough and cover each log with aluminum foil and keep in refrigerator.
  9. I refrigerated the dough logs for the whole night.
  10. Next morning, cut the log into different desired shapes and sizes.
  11. Preheat oven for 6 minutes at 180 degrees.
  12. Grease a baking tray and set the cookies on the tray, placing each cookie at a distance from each other. This allows even baking.
  13. Bake for 20 minutes at 180 degrees. I used microwave convection mode at 180 degrees for baking.
  14. I baked another set of cornmeal cookies on gas stove on a skillet. Place an iron tawa on the burner. Grease a thick steel plate or nonstick utensil. Place cookies evenly on the utensil/plate.
  15. Set the gas to a low flame.
  16. Cover the cookies with a big utensil.
  17. Bake for 8-10 minutes. check and change sides. Keep an eye on the cookies, as they bake really fast on gas. Keeping for too long would brown them. The second side bakes quickly - may take 5 minutes. 
  18. Let the cookies cool on a cooling rack.
  19. ENJOY the healthy cornmeal cookies with a cup of hot tea. 
  20. Store in an airtight container.
