Cookies, cookies everywhere, but not an unhealthy ingredient here!

Yes, I am again talking of healthy cookies. Somebody asked can cookies be healthy? I said no. But if you love cookies and cannot avoid these bakes, it is a good idea to switch to healthy ingredients to bake a set of healthy cookies.

I am sure the batch with no maida (white flour) would be healthier and tastier than its refined flour version.

  • If you think whole wheat cookies cannot taste as good as maida ones, you ought to give this healthy cookie recipe a try.

Can we use the soaked water for millets? Does millet need to be soaked?

Do millets contain anti-nutrients? Yes, they do. In fact, all whole grains, including oats, contain phytates, which bind to minerals and make their absorption difficult for the body. Soaking is the first step toward reducing anti-nutrients from millets. Soak for at least 6-8 hours to make digestion easier. Discard the soaked water and then proceed to the next step of cooking. Remove foam from top to reduce gassy elements from millets.  How long should millet be soaked before cooking? Soaking the millets overnight is a safe practice.
