almond biscuits














Recipe

1 cup regular wheat flour
1 cup almond meal (method to make almond meal at home given at the bottom)
3/4 cup butter (refrigerated and solid) (I used clarified butter/desi ghee)
1 tsp Baking powder
sugar (depends on taste)
a pinch salt 
3/4 tsp dry roasted fennel seeds (you may add green cardamom)

Method



  1. Mix flour and baking powder. 
  2. Add almond meal, salt, fennel seeds, and sugar. Mix well.
  3. Take solidified butter and simply press and rub it with the flour. Make sure it mixes evenly with the flour. No need to knead it like normal dough. Just gather the mixture and make a log. 
  4. Wrap it in a cling film or parchment paper (I used aluminum foil). 
  5. Refrigerate it for 1-2 hours. (I initially refrigerated them for 30 minutes). You may keep it longer.  (I was left with some dough that I used the next day to make cookies. 
  6. The second day, the biscuits tasted even better. So experience suggests you to keep the dough in the fridge for longer time to get the best results.)


Take out the dough log and cut it into even shapes. 

Preheat the oven at 180 degrees for 10 mins and bake the cookies for about 15 mins at the same temperature. 
When ready, do not forget to cool the cookies on a stand. Store them in an air-tight container once they have completely cooled.

Here's some feedback from Sherine Palanna:

Recipe for Making wheat-almond cookies on gas stove:


You can make these super delectable cookies on gas as well. Take a heavy bottom cooker. Add 2 cups of salt. Place a stand and switch on the flame, with the cooker cover on without the whistle. This will preheat the cooker for 10 mins. When your cookie dough is ready, cut them into pieces. Place them on a greased plate that can fit in the cooker. Bake on a slow flame for 10-15 mins. You can keep an eye on the cookies after 10 mins.




Looking for taste as well as health? Your kids love cookies. So why buy them from the store? Try making them at home, using wheat flour and almonds, with the sweet aroma of fennel. Voila. That's it. Enjoy home-made almond-wheat cookies

How to prepare Almond Meal at home

You can make almond meal at home. 

Soak almonds in hot water for 10 minutes. Remove their skin or cover.

Let them dry. I usually run out of time so dry them on gas. 

Just keep them in kadahi on medium flame. 

Keep stirring until the moisture has dried out. 

Once almonds are completely dry, set them aside to cool down. 

Then grind them to coarse powder. Your homemade almond meal is ready!! You can make an umpteen number of cookies and desserts with almond meal.

Eggless Cake Without Raising Agents: A No Baking Powder, No Baking Soda Sponge Cake Recipe

When you are able to bake an eggless cake without raising agents, your happiness knows no bounds, right? This is exactly what I am in for today. What started as an experiment has worked out wonders for me.


I was trying to hone my cake baking skills while learning a few baking basics. Then struck this idea of baking a cake without baking powder or baking soda. A loved one is suffering from histamine sensitivity, and these chemical agents trigger urticaria, which gives me goosebumps. So I decided to go the other way round - baking an eggless cake without raising agents.

You need a light flour here - something that would effectively replace maida/all-purpose flour/refined flour/white flour. I remember one dhaba wala telling me once about how they replace maida sometimes - using a mix of jau and rice flour.

So this is exactly what I needed. This has given me one of the simplest yet tastiest cakes. Please do not change the flours, as I am unsure how any other flour would work here. I will…

Yes, this is the quintessential south Indian menu that has become widely popular world over for its rich taste, unique flavors, and nutritional boost!
