Morning and evening tea without Cookies seems impossible, at least to my husband Amit. The story rolls backs to when I was not really into baking and did not even have an oven. I did not know how to make cookies without an oven. My journey to home baking is an interesting one that you may like to read.
Soon after my child exams were over, we visited my Mom’s place. It is always so refreshing to be back with your Mom. This time my younger was also there and my Mom refreshed our childhood memory by making Malai Cake.
This cake used to be our childhood best companion. And my Mom always made it in a pressure cooker. And I was like, how can I forget this recipe. I became confident that she would know how to bake cookies without oven or microwave. So, I picked her brain and experimented the recipe at home.

Let’s bake our cookies without an oven
In a mixing bowl add whole wheat flour, sugar, baking powder, and ghee. Start mixing all the ingredient until you get a breadcrumb like texture. Add tutti frutti and 2 tbs milk to bind the dough.
Tip: Do not knead it else the flour will develop gluten and you will get chewy cookies.
Cover the dough with cling wrap and rest the prepared dough in the refrigerator for 30 min. After 30 minutes, take the dough out from the refrigerator and using a rolling pin roll out it into a sheet of a ¼ inch thickness.
Meanwhile, keep idli maker on a gas stove. Add salt to it and spread it evenly. Close the lid and let it heat on medium flame for 15 minutes. Grease all the idli trays.
Using a cookie cutter cut cookies out of the rolled sheet.
Place these cookies on idli plates and place the idli stand inside idli maker. Close the lid and let the cookies bake on slow to medium flame.
It took approximately 25- 30 minutes to bake perfect cookies.
Tip: Just keep a watch. The moment edges of the cookies turn brown, switch off the flame.
Place all the baked cookies on a wired rack and allow them to cool completely. Your no oven cookies are ready to be served.
