Ingredients

1/2 cup - cornmeal (makki atta)
1/2 cup- wheat flour
1/2 cup-almond meal/powder
1/4 tsp- baking powder
2 tsp- ghee/clarified butter
2 tbsp- olive oil/ saffola/vegetable oil
1 tbsp- curd/yogurt
2-3 tbsp- milk (or as needed)

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.

Homemade Edible Powders: Beetroot, Onion, Garlic, Ginger, Lemon, Orange, Sambar, Kurma, Garam Masala

The title says it all. This post is all about edible powders that can be used as flavoring agents, natural color, and to make food visually attractive. What more do we need? Though I am not too much in favor of drying food and storing the same, this is the best option for those days when these veggies are out of season. During the season, please make it a point to enjoy these fresh and flavorful. There's nothing better and healthier than fresh produce, right?

Okay so the idea to make these powders popped up in my mind as I had too many beetroots at home. When nobody was too eager to have them, the best way to still consume these beauties was to sundry them to powder. I did exactly that.





Then I wondered if I can sundry lemon peels into powder just like we do to orange peels. I have been using orange peels as a face pack thus far. But since the baking bug has bitten me badly, I plan to use it as an edible powder for cakes and cookies too. Fingers crossed for the results though, sin…

The Best Multigrain Digestives: An Airfryer Recipe

The best multigrain digestives? I know I have shared too many digestives recipes but this one is my best. To be frank, I experiment, relish, share, and post the same for you all and then forget all about it because it's time to experiment again with new ingredients. So today it was another kind of digestives - relished by one and all. My cookie making spree has turned my cookie hater hubby into someone who has started to munch on these baked beauties.



Before sharing the simple cookie recipe, it is time to go through oats benefits. You are already aware of my love for oats. One reason you rarely find my recipes without this fibrous cereal grain. Did you go through the fiber benefits?











Go to my fiber benefits post to get deeper insight into the need for including fiber in your diet.



Ingredients
1 cup- oat flour
3/4 cup- whole wheat
1/4 cup- bran
1/4cup- ragi
2 tbsp- roasted quinoa powdered (roasted quinoa adds a nutty flavor to the recipe - substitute with almond powder if you do not h…

Diabetic Diet Cake With Watermelon: A Vegan Recipe

While people are still debating whether watermelon is a diabetes-friendly fruit, I still stick to my notion that diabetics can have this fruit for its sheer hydration effect. Not only this, the fruit is loaded with minerals, nutrients, and antioxidants that make it a health-friendly food. However, diabetics with kidney issues should avoid watermelon. Anyway, let's come back to the watermelon cake recipe for diabetics. Well, this cake uses another fruit - banana- which even I do not think is diabetes-friendly. But I went ahead with including a banana for this recipe merely to keep the fat content low. I hope you all know that a banana is a good substitute for an egg for an eggless cake recipe.

Since an egg is also loaded with saturated fat, diabetics should avoid it at any cost. So I had to choose between an egg and a banana for this diabetes-friendly cake, and ended up voting for this humble fruit - which is one of my favorites too. Yes!

When you think of a vegan diabetes-friendl…
