How to make cookies at home without oven

Let's start creaming ghee and jaggery powder. You need jaggery powder for cookies and not a block of jaggery. If you already follow my cookie recipes, then the ghee here might spring a surprise on you. I know you are wondering why I have not used solid ghee. Well, I just wanted to give you another option . So here it is.

It won't cream easily because the ghee is not solid. Worry not. Mix and add organic vanilla powder for flavor. You may use any natural flavor of choice but avoid using vanilla essence, which is chemical. opt for either vanilla bean powder or extract. Give it a good mix and leave it in the freezer for 10 minutes. It should set well. Meanwhile, let's chop walnuts. if you want to add saffron flavor to the atta biscuits, mix a few saffron strand in 1 tbsp of milk. Keep aside.

I use the walnut shells for some diy decor. I am not good at it though. My sister is. She makes the best of all things waste. Do check her channel if the idea of reusing waste interests you. I will leave her link in the description.

Now let's cream the frozen ghee and jaggery and it should be fairly easy. Our aim is to get a fluffy, pale mix and that's exactly what we will end up with here. You may use an electric hand mixer if you want. I love working with my hand whisk/beater though. It has been effectively my best friend as far as creaming my cookie mixes is concerned.

Now let's sift oat flour and mix. Then add whole wheat flour little by little until you get a soft dough. We do not want tight dough. Remember this! Add 1/4 cup powdered walnuts.

Let the dough rest for 10 minutes before shaping it into cookies. Top each cookie with chopped walnuts. Preheat your air fryer to 160 deg c for 5 min. If you are baking cookies in idli stand, the time to preheat your cooker is now. I use a layer of salt as a base in the cooker. So we need to preheat both together.

Bake cookies in airfryer for 10-12 min at 160 deg c. Timing depends on the thickness of cookies as well as your appliance's setting.

For baking cookies in idli stand, avoid using the last layer of idli molds. We want to bake only in the upper 2-3 layers. The last one will bake v quickly as it is closer to the heat source. That will burn your biscuits in idli maker. So always avoid using that. Instead, use the top two or three layers. Dust each idli mold with flour. You do not need to grease it with oil/ghee. Dry flour alone will work.

Bake cookies in idli stand at the lowest flame for 20-30 min. Please check after 20 min, if the oatmeal walnut biscuits look soft, you may bake a little longer.

The airfryer biscuits with jaggery are ready. Remove the cookies from air fryer and let them cool until crispy. Then pack in a gorgeous gift box as a Diwali gift.

Let's check the healthy atta cookies made in idli stand. Unmould when the idli maker cools down. Meanwhile, as the salt is still hot, you may use it for popping millets. I chose to pop jowar, bajra, sabudana, and amaranth. I will post those videos next. Making healthy cookies recipe for Diwali is easy.

Can we use the soaked water for millets? Does millet need to be soaked?

Do millets contain anti-nutrients? Yes, they do. In fact, all whole grains, including oats, contain phytates, which bind to minerals and make their absorption difficult for the body. Soaking is the first step toward reducing anti-nutrients from millets. Soak for at least 6-8 hours to make digestion easier. Discard the soaked water and then proceed to the next step of cooking. Remove foam from top to reduce gassy elements from millets.  How long should millet be soaked before cooking? Soaking the millets overnight is a safe practice. Soaking breaks down the phytic acid in millets or for that matter grains and nuts. 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.  Are millets safe for thyroid? Does
