    Morning and evening tea without biscuits seems impossible, at least to my husband Amit. He never liked the idea of eating Parle G with tea and always wanted me to bake some cookies for routine. 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 oven. My journey to home baking is an interesting one that you may like to read.

    Let’s bake our cookies without 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.

    Dough kneading

    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.

    Cookie shaping

    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.

    Cookies before baking

    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.

    Cookies after baking

    Place all the baked cookies on a wired rack and allow them to cool completely. Your cookies without oven are ready to serve.

    Recipe Notes
    1. Do not knead the dough else it will develop gluten that will result in soft and chewy cookies.
    2. You can use Clarified butter (ghee) or unsalted butter for this recipe.
    3. After kneading resting the dough in a refrigerator helps to get crunchy cookies.
    4. Any change of ingredient or its measurement can change the final result.
    5. To bake these cookies in an oven, preheat the oven to 160 °C and bake the cookies at the same temperature for 18 minutes.
    6. I have an idli maker with 5 trays. To avoid burning off the cookies, I have only used to top 4 trays.
    7. I have used 1 kg of regular cooking salt to make the base in the idli maker.
    8. The salt can be reused multiple times, hence you can store it.
