Yes, it's digestives again! But this time there is a pista twist to the digestives. If you are bored of the typical digestives, then why not experiment with the atypical ones? I hope you remember my badam digestives Nutri choice like that were loved by one and all. Now it's time to add pistachios to bake this yummy goodness.

mini pista digestives
Well, the idea to include pistachio in digestives has been flocking in my head for quite some time. I have been willing to add pista flavor to some of my recent recipes - for example, my creamless, sugarless, milk-free pistachio kulfi, which got me some very good reviews.

Pista digestives are unique and different from regular digestives in taste. Texturewise they look the same- though their greenish tint sets them apart. I love the pista color and flavor. What about you? Not to mention, the umpteen number of pistachio benefits.

Do you remember my 2-ingredient kid-friendly pista ladoos?
Do you also remember my oats-pista bar - a sugarless, dairy-free delight?
I am sure you still remember my barley pista cookies - refined sugarfree, no baking powder/baking soda.

  • do not use refined flour - maida
  • do not use refined sugar -white sugar
  • use a mix of clarified butter and oil for that perfect blend of health and taste

Refined sugar and refined flour do your body no good. While you are trying to avoid calories, these two ingredients are rich in empty calories, which are nutrient deficient and raise your risk of diabetes. Perhaps they have a high glyemic index and can do your body more harm and NO GOOD at all.
I suggest substituting these empty calories with ingredients that can give you some nutritional value!

Ingredients
1 cup measures- 240 ml (30 cookies)
1 cup- oats powder
½ cup- whole wheat flour
¼ cup- pista powder
½ tsp- b.soda
1/2 cup (or more) dry jaggery powder
2 tbsp- chilled ghee/butter
3 tbsp- olive oil
3 tbsp- milk (boil 1 clove in milk and take 3 tbsp of that milk—use the rest of milk for tea)


How to make pistachio digestives| Ravneet Bhalla Cookies


The making of mini pista digestives is super easy :

Sift all flours - oatmeal, whole wheat flour along with baking soda. Do this 2-3 times.
Add pista powder to the flours. This is simply ground pistachios.
Throw in jaggery powder. Make sure it is dry and does not have sold grits. Check my video on making a fine jaggery powder at home. The link has been shared above.
Next drop in chilled ghee or butter. I keep my stock of ghee in the refrigerator for some of my cookie batches.
Add olive oil to the flours. Start rubbing the mix with hands. You may replace extra virgin olive oil with any other seed oil or even ghee. I find olive oil as the best ghee substitute for my cookies and paranthas. It is a healthier alternative to ghee, especially for those with high cholesterol, triglycerides, diabetes, kidney, and heart ailments and/or metabolic problems.
Check my video on this step - rubbing oil and ghee into the flours. It is an important step in digestives making and will decide the final result.
Once the flour seems to have absorbed the oil and ghee and looks like wet sand, it's time to add milk -should be at room temperature.
Add 1 tbsp of milk at a time until you are able to gather the ingredients into a semi-soft dough. The dough should not be too hard, nor too soft.
Preheat the oven/airfryer/convection to 170 degrees for 10 mts. You can preheat the airfryer for just 5 mins.
Roll out half of the digestives dough into a thick roti - should not be too thick though.
Take a cookie cutter or a bottle lid/cap and cut shapes.
Bake for 15 mins and let the pista digestives cool down before munching with a cup of tea or milk.
Let kids indulge in healthy goodness.

Sugarless Besan Ladoo : A Healthy Chickpea Gluten Free Recipe

besan ladoo Is chickpea gluten free? This is one of the most common question asked by few besan lovers. I have always been fond of besan (gram flour) ladoos. But hubby doesn't find them interesting enough to relish them. Yes, I am not joking. He loves boondi ladoos. So I have never tried making besan ladoos before. This Diwali, I wanted to give my favorite ladoos a try. But yes, the health freak in me questioned whether I was really prepared to give in my health goals to relish my favorite besan ladoos. Then the thought of giving a twist to these ladoos struck my imagination. The rest is history - the besan ladoos use just 1 tbsp of ghee (clarified butter) with no SUGAR. Yes, I have given myself the freedom to substitute sugar with dates in this recipe as well. Dates lend subtle sweetness to the recipe! So you can enjoy the delicacy guilt free!
