Call these Semolina almond cookies or sooji biscuits thandai cookies without baking powder, soda, this recipe is going to be a keeper in your baking journey.
Holi is long gone, but I couldn't resist making thandai cookies with semolina using homemade thandai mix. The best thing about these crunchy munchies is that these are chemical free and amazingly fragrant and delicious.
What are the takeaways?
  • Sweetened with organic jaggery - replacing calorie-laden refined sugar in my kitchen pantry
  • No baking powder/soda - baking without chemicals, preservatives
  • Flavored with thandai powder- homemade natural thandai powder adds a spicy, flavorful twist to the Indian sooji biscuits
It's a wrong perception that jaggery cookies turn soggy/chewy after a few days. One cookie experiment after another with jaggery has proved that jaggery cookies, too, remain crunchy (crispy) days after baking.

Ingredients for Semolina Thandai Cookies

3/4 cup- semolina/suji (I added in batches of 1/4th cup thrice)
2 tbsp- solid ghee (refrigerate ghee for 30 mts before baking) - I make 5-minute ghee
1 tbsp- extra virgin olive oil (or ghee/butter)
1 tbsp- hung curd/thick curd/greek yogurt
1/4 cup- homemade thandai powder (or almond meal if you do not have thandai mix)
1/4 cup or more- organic jaggery powder

How to make Semolina Cookies Without Baking Powder, Soda

I am sharing the link to homemade Thandai mix here. Try that out first. If you do not have thandai powder, replace it with almond flour or meal instead to make semolina almond cookies with jaggery and ghee.

1. Take solid ghee and olive oil in a bowl.
2. Add organic jaggery powder and whisk well until it looks light, fluffy, and creamy.
3. Add hung curd and whisk again for 1 minute.
4. Mix 1/4 cup semolina and mix with a spatula.
5. Mix thandai powder and stir it well.
6. Mix 1/4 cup semolina and mix.
7. Add the remaining 1/4 cup of semolina and mix.
8. Cover and refrigerate the semolina cookie dough for 30mts.
9.  Remove the dough from the fridge.
10. Roll out into a thick chapati - make cookie shapes. This is a fragile dough, which will keep breaking, but if you use my trick (check the video), you can easily give shapes and bake a beautiful batch of Indian semolina biscuits.
11. Place on an airfryer basket or baking tray and refrigerate the same for 30 mts again. This will help cookies retain shape in the airfryer/oven.
12. Preheat the airfryer to 160 degrees for 5 minutes. Oven/convection should be preheated for 10 minutes.
13. Bake/airfry semolina cookies for 10-12 minutes or until they turn slightly golden at the edges.
14. Let Indian semolina biscuits cool down on a cooling rack before munching on these crunchy bites.
15. These sooji biscuits are a flavor bomb with a perfect crunch. If you love these, you will also love semolina coconut cookies.
16. You will love these crispy crunchy bites that are another name for flavorful cookies. Bursting with the unique flavor of fennel and cardamom, these semolina cookies are spicy from black pepper.

Phytic acid hinders the absorption of minerals and nutrients in food, including calcium, iron, and zinc. How? Phytates bind to minerals and nutrients and make their absorption difficult in the gut. Your tummy finds it tough to digest millets in that case. So soaking millets and draining off that soaked water makes it easier on your tummy.  Does millet need to be soaked? Yes, without soaking, you may not be able to derive benefits from millets. How much water do you need to soak millets? You may rinse millets well before soaking in at least double the amount of water.  How long should foxtail millet be soaked? All millets should be soaked overnight or for at least 6 hours.
