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.

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…

Instant Aam Papad (Sada) With Jaggery: Sweet & Tangy Mango Slices

Aam papad has been a hot favorite since childhood. I do not remember how many times I have enjoyed these sweet & tangy mango sheets, though no one from my mom's side ever tried making them at home. After marriage, my mother in law, who is an awesome cook, made these savory & sweet mango pulp slices for me. I must tell that she makes the best mango pickle in the world - which is both sweet & sour. She made two buckets full for me after she found that I love aam achaar.

Who does not like sweet and tangy mango leather? Our generation has grown up relishing aam papad- wonder what all the present generation is missing out on! So this instant aam sada or papad recipe was born after my dear friend Poonam Bachhav had shared her aam papad post. Her post was the ultimate trigger for me to come up with my own instant Odia version. Poonam is the real Annapurna. I love the way she picks healthy ingredients to cook up deliciousness in the kitchen. Poonam blogs at Poonam Bachaav dot…
