Let’s make our vegetable cookies recipe
Take a non-stick pan and heat 1 tsp oil on it. Sauté cumin seed, chopped onions, and green chili for about 2 minutes and then add grated carrots and green peas.
Cook for 2-3 minutes. Switch off the flame.
With the help of a masher, mash these vegetables. Let them cool down.
Can you use vegetable oil instead of butter for cookies? The answer is No.
People have asked this question many times, so I thought to address it here. Butter is important if you want your cookies not to spread or get de-shaped while baking. Butter holds the structure and shape of the cookie and vegetable oil cannot do this. Vegetable oil has a low melting point and stays in a fluid state while at room temperature.
You will need to add milk to bind the dough, however, just add 1 tablespoon milk at a time till you get a smooth dough. I added 2 tablespoons of milk.
Now cover the dough with a cling wrap and refrigerate it for 30 minutes.
PS: Refrigeration will help the butter to solidify and bind the dough.
Meanwhile, keep the oven for preheating to 160 °C.
After 30 minutes take the dough out of the refrigerator and slice the cookies using a sharp knife. Arrange the cookies on a greased baking tray and put them to bake in preheated oven for 15-18 minutes. The edges should turn golden.
PS: you could also use parchment paper instead of greasing the tray.
Once baked, take the cookies out and transfer them to a cooling rack and allow them to cool down.
Your Eggless carrot cookies with all the goodness of vegetables are ready to be served.
