How to make punjabi ghee atta biscuit easily in kadahi or airfryer
Mix ghee with elaichi powder and refrigerate for 1 hour at least.
Start creaming ghee with jaggery powder. Make sure to sift all dry ingredients.
Continue whipping until it all looks fluffy and light.
Add milk and cream again. It should look like soft peaks.
Now sift whole wheat flour and add in batches - little by little. You may or may not need the whole of 1.2 cup of wole wheat atta. In some cases, you may need more atta if your flour is fine. But those with rough, coarse flour that has bran and fiber, you may need to use little less than 1/2 cup of atta. It all depends on when you get soft dough. It should not be hard.
Make into a log and refrigerate for 10 minutes.
Preheat airfryer to 5 minutes at 160 deg c.
Cut shapes with a potato slicer and sprinkle more black cardamom powder on top.
Bake at 160 deg c for 10-12 min in airfryer. It may take longer to bake punjabi atta cookies in oven or otg.
You may bake in kadahi too. Spread a layer of salt or sand in a heavy kadahi. Preheat it for 5 min on high flame.
Dust some dry atta on the baking tray and place cookies for baking. Take a thick baking utensil for this purpose.
Bake on a low flame for 5 mins. Check if the bottom has browned. If so, shake the cookies a little to displace them from their position. This prevents burning from bottom.
Cover and bake for another 2-4 minutes - longer in some cases.
Let cookies cool down and grate any browned part. Enjoy healthy atta cookies with a hot cup of tea and make memories.
