Gluten-Free Besan Cookies With Jaggery: Baking With Chickpea Flour, Cookies Without Baking Soda, Refined Sugar Free


Gluten-free cookies?Cookies without baking powder or soda? Is chickpea gluten free?

You have recently turned to a gluten-free diet and are looking for gluten-free recipes, right? Or a loved one is diagnosed with celiac disease and cannot tolerate gluten, so you want to ease their life with some gluten-free recipes that taste yum too. Well, you can have many gluten-free recipe options, but when it comes to baking with gluten-free ingredients, you might find yourself in a fix. Reason? Perhaps the biggest reason being that gluten-free flours are difficult to bind, because they lack gluten - the elastic component that makes rotis chewy. So I have experimented with a few gluten-free options to come up with the best gluten-free cookie recipe. The recipe has a secret ingredient that gives it substance and enhances its flavor too. Wondering what it is?

Let's unravel the secret to making gluten-free cookies here!
Before that, I would like to ask if you ever find baking with chickpea flour difficult?

I love chickpea flour, which is both glutn-free and nutty.
It makes pakodas yum, kadhis delectable, sheera delicious, and cookies crunchy!!!

Yes, you have heard me right.

Process the ingredients well, follow the recipe step-by-step, and do not miss out a single step, and you can easily bake a gluten-free cookie without any hassle.

Ingredients for easy, healthy besan cookies: Baking with chickpea flour

1 cup=240 ml
Makes 16 cookies

1/2 cup minus 1 tbsp- besan/chickpea flour
1/2 cup- powdered poha (1 cup poha makes 1/2 cup powder)
2 tbsp- solid ghee/butter
2 tbsp- olive oil or butter/ghee
1/4 cup- or more organic jaggery powder (I like it less sweet)
sesame seeds
1/4 tsp- black salt
1 tbsp thick curd or milk (I have added curd)


How to bake with chickpea flour: Besan Cookies Gluten Free

Whisk together oil, ghee, and sifted organic jaggery powder. Remove any jaggery grits. Else, these might ooze out of baked goodies, spoiling their looks/visual appeal. LOL .
Check my brief video on which jaggery powder is best for cookies and how to bake with organic jaggery.
Whisk for 2-3 minutes or more until it all looks pale and foamy.
Add salt and whisk again for a few seconds.
Add curd and whisk again for 1 minute.
Now it's time to stir in powdered poha. Mix with a spatula or hands.
DO NOT TRY TO KNEAD.
Then stir in besan or chickpea flour in small batches. Avoid adding the whole of it. You may be left with 1 tbsp of besan. Adding the whole 1/2 cup of besan might give you a different result.
Mix with a spatula and roll it out into a dough using a rolling pin on a greased or dusted surface.
Sprinkle sesame seeds as a layer on top.
Press gently with a rolling pin.
DO NOT APPLY FORCE PLEASE.
Make round balls with a bottle cap or cookie cutter.
Make cuts on the outline for design. You may want to keep it simple instead.
Decorate wth slivered pistachio in the center.
Bake or airfry in a preheated machine (preheat to 160 degrees for 5 minutes) for 12-16 minutes at 160 degrees. Might take a couple of minutes more or less, depending on your machine settings.
Allow the gluten-free besan cookies to cool down properly before starting to munch on crunchy bites.
I hope you like this recipe from my baking without baking powder/soda series. I am compiling some of these in my airfryer cookie recipes collection. You can bake these on a stovetop, in an otg, convection, or oven.
Happy Healthy Baking, friends!
Do not forget to try these cookies without baking powder, soda for chemical-free baking with organic ingredients.

    1. Follow the same temperature...though timing might vary slightly...but bake for the same amount of time first..if the cookies look uncooked, you can bake for an extra couple of minutes..remember,
      besan cookies tend to cook faster

If so, you can connect with me there and share the food image. I will update the blog with the same. As of now, there is no option for readers to post multimedia/graphics/images in comments here. I will work out a way in this regard. Excuse me for the inconvenience.
