Actually chickpea is a versatile ingredient and makes delicious savory snacks, lip-smacking curries, finger-licking desserts and sweets, and delectable cookies. You already know of besan nankhatai. Or for that matter besan cornflakes nankhatai, which got viral in my food group and across many other groups. I must say it has a unique flavor.

Those who have tried the besan nankhatai with cornflakes once have done it an umpteen number of times.


This time even I wanted to recreate the same, but due to power outage, I was not able to grind cornflakes, so dropped the idea of including them to the recipe. So this gave me a chickpea flour cookies vegan recipe that I am in love with. I have shared the vegan options as well. The gluten free cookie recipe is shared below.

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…
