The Best Multigrain Digestives: An Airfryer Recipe


The best multigrain digestives? I know I have shared too many digestives recipes but this one is my best. To be frank, I experiment, relish, share, and post the same for you all and then forget all about it because it's time to experiment again with new ingredients. So today it was another kind of digestives - relished by one and all. My cookie making spree has turned my cookie hater hubby into someone who has started to munch on these baked beauties.

Before sharing the simple cookie recipe, it is time to go through oats benefits. You are already aware of my love for oats. One reason you rarely find my recipes without this fibrous cereal grain. Did you go through the fiber benefits?

Ingredients
1 cup- oat flour
3/4 cup- whole wheat
1/4 cup- bran
1/4cup- ragi
2 tbsp- roasted quinoa powdered (roasted quinoa adds a nutty flavor to the recipe - substitute with almond powder if you do not have quinoa handy)
3 tbsp- ghee (cold - refrigerate for 1 hour before using for the digestives recipe)
3 tbsp-olive oil
1/2 tsp- baking soda
2 tbsp- thick curd
2 tbsp- honey
2-3 tbsp- raw cane sugar/dry jaggery powder
1 tbsp- roasted flax powder

How to make multigrain digestives


This is thus far the best digestives recipe you can come across. The reason being the delicious bites that can turn a no-cookie admirer into a digestives lover. Hubby dear, who is not too fond of cookies, seems to be falling in love with his wifey's cookie exploits.

Anyway cookies are not the healthiest snacks to savor, but they can be made healthier from the market junk.

Sift all the flours along with baking soda 3-4 times. Set aside. This includes powdered oats, whole wheat, ragi. quinoa, and bran. I know there will be a lot of coarse flour remaining on the strainer. Just throw it into the flour once you are done sifting. You will love these tiny bits in these delicious bites.
Next, add cold butter and olive oil or any other flavorless seed oil to the flour.
Throw in raw cane sugar.
Start rubbing the ghee-oil into the flour. This should be done until there is no oil-ghee visible. The atta should give you a greased look by now. Remember, this will be more like wet bread crumbs. Add flax powder and mix again.
Take another bowl. Add curd and honey. Whisk well.
Add the entire atta mix to this curd-honey bowl.
It might look sticky. Never mind. Leave the mix covered for half an hour on the counter.
Preheat oven/mw convection for 10 mts at 160 degrees.
For me, this is again an airfryer recipe. I preheated airfryer for 5 mts.
Meanwhile, roll out the dough into a thick chapati - the size should be almost double or triple that of roti - do not keep it too thick or too thin.
I baked these in 4 batches. Cut cookie shapes - airfried one batch while the rest sat in the refrigerator.
Bake/airfry for  10-12 minutes at 160 degrees.
Baking at a low temperature will ensure even cooking from all sides and give you crunchy bites. Moreover, if you bake/airfry at a higher temperature, the digestives might burn out too quickly.
Allow the digestives a resting period of 5 mins and then remove them from the oven/airfryer on a cooling rack.
Start munching on these crunchy munchies only once they have cooled down completely.
Enjoy a unique burst of digestive flavors and revert with feedback on this simple cookie recipe or my easy digestives recipe.

  1. Hello Ravneet! Thanks for sharing your brilliant recipe. I've a question. Can we substitute wholewheat flour with something else? Or avoid it totally?

    1. Why do you want to avoid whole wheat flour? You can substitute with amaranth flour. Check this recipe for amaranth digestives: http://www.mercuryimp.com/2017/02/crunchy-amaranth-cookies-with-semolina.html

  2. This is a really amazing air fryer as it has many features and it makes cooking easy even if you are not professional in cooking. I also have that fryer which I use when my mom will not be at home. You can also find more unprofessional cooks like me who use this to make food.

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…
