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

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.

Refined Sugar-Free Quinoa Digestives: Fiber Rich, Nutrient Dense, Sugarless Quinoa Recipe

Have you heard of quinoa digestives? I did an Internet search to find it out, but couldn't trace any quinoa digestives recipe. Perhaps we have yet not moved to supergrains when it comes to digestives. When it comes to digestives, most of us can't think beyond whole wheat flour and oats. Perhaps dgestives require fiber-rich oats because it gives the biscuit the perfect digestives structure. I love oats so much so that I have compiled a collection of over 200 oats recipes. Now coming to quinoa digestives recipe, I have tried out too many digestives, including amaranth digestives, pistachio digestives, Mcvities digestives, and Nutri choice-like digestives. This time I wanted to skip whole wheat and include quinoa. Yes, if you remember, I have already shared a few quinoa recipes here, including quinoa nankhatais without baking soda/baking powder.

What I did next was exactly this!
My goal with each recipe is to get the better out of me!  Quinoa substitutes whole wheat
Yes, my dear…

Kid-Friendly Badam Oats Cookies: Sugarfree, Fiber Rich, Eggless

Recently, there is a Sunfeast advertisement on Moms Magic cookies. This has attracted my attention. So what happened next is history. As you already know me, the cookie big has bitten me badly, so I jumped into experimenting with badam cookies. I have never tasted these cookies from Sunfeast, as I do not buy outside biscuits these days. So the oats cookie recipe is the result of my own healthy baking experiment. Did the experiment disappoint?
Of course, not!

You have got to be a cookie lover to try out a new cookie every other day. My airfryer has made life easier for me, and I find it the best investment for my baking journey.

Ever since my airfryer homecoming, I have always chosen to go for airfryer cookies, and not touched my convection ever since. That's the beauty of airfryer baking.

Okay, so let's come back to the badam cookie recipe. Did I say this is a no raising agent cookie recipe?
