how to make recipe
making dough for chocolate chip cookies:

  2. in a bowl take all the wet ingredients - milk, curd/yogurt, oil, vinegar and vanilla extract.
  3. add sugar and whisk the mixture till the sugar is dissolved.

  5. add chocolate chips.
  6. mix everything first with a spatula or with your hands.

making chocolate chip cookies:
  1. make small or medium sized balls of the dough and flatten them a bit. these chocolate chip cookies don't flatten too much while baking.

  2. so if you want a flat cookie, then flatten them with your hands. spread some oil on your hands while shaping the cookies. place the cookies in a greased tray.

  3. bake chocolate chip cookies in the preheated oven at 200 degrees celsius/390 degrees fahrenheit for 15 to 25 minutes or till the cookies are golden.

  4. just keep an eye when the cookie are getting baked in the oven. keep the tray in the center rack with both the top and bottom heating elements on.

  5. for a microwave oven in the convection mode, use 180 degrees celsius/350 degrees fahrenheit for baking the chocolate chip cookies. if you have made thin and flat cookies, they will get baked faster.

  6. remove when still hot and place them on a wired rack
  7. once cooled, serve them immediately or store in an air tight jar or box. serve these eggless chocolate chip cookies with milk or coffee.

        • aparna, use same quantity of butter instead of oil. vinegar is needed. instead of vinegar you can add lime juice in same quantity.

  • Hi,

    I have followed most of your north indian dishes and it has turned out well. I am planning to bake cookies for my 2.5 yr old son and went through your recipe. Since I am going to bake cookies for the first time, I have a doubt. Will baking powder help in baking the cookies perfect. I went through so many recipes for cookies and most of it had baking powder and baking soda. So could you help me out with this.

    • thanks surya for your positive feedback. addition of baking powder or baking soda depends from recipe to recipe.

  • Hello,

    I am a BIG follower of your blog. Love the pictures you put with every recipe. I tried these cookies today after a long day at my University.. Since I don't eat eggs I was finding it difficult to get my chocolate fix! But no more! My cookies came out splendid. I did add some extra cocoa powder, but rest of it I followed your recipe to the tee. Thank you so much for the wonderful recipe!! Love it!

    • welcome amrita. glad to know this. thanks for sharing your kind words and positive feedback.

  • Hi..,

    I must say you are awesome. You have made life for vegetarians so easy.. I have been making dishes from your blog from last three months. Must say all the recipes have simple ingredients readily available at home. And each and every dish i have tried have tasted excellent every time. This was the first time i tried baking, and they turned out as mentioned in the recipe.. Thank you and keep posting.. :)

  • Hi Dassana,
    i m a big fan of your blog. Your recipes are very simple and easy to make. Thanks a ton for your efforts! I have a question regarding these cookies and chocolate cake. Can i add eggs in both these recipes? Will that help in making coikies more crunchier and cake more spongy? If yes, then how many eggs to be added and at what step?
    Thanks in advance

    • adding eggs in the chocolate cake and cookies will change the whole recipe as i have used egg substitutes in place of eggs. so i am unable to help you in these recipes as the entire recipe changes.

  • Hi dassana.. I woul like to thank you for your efforts to publish ths site.. It just fabulous.. so simple and healthy recipes.. I tried your pav bhaji recipe and it turned out just perfect.. Thanks alot.. I just wanted to ask for this recipe that can we bake cookies and cakes in microwave?

    • thanks ruchi for your kind words and positive feedback. you can bake in convection mode of microwave only but not in microwave mode.

  • Hi....

    • welcome vimla. thanks for your kind words and positive feedback on recipes. glad to know that recipes are helping you in cooking.

  • Hi dassana,
    Liking your recipes. Simple and easy to make! A great help. Also your tips are very useful.

  • Hey.. I made the recipe.. the cookies taste great.. however they are not crispy. They are soft, like a hardened cake.
    where did i go wrong?
    I added 7 tbsp milk and then added 1 extra tbsp flour and used greek yogurt
    Please help :)

    • the cookies are soft and have a cake like texture. but are not hard. i have mentioned in the post too. they are not that much crisp like the ready made choco chip cookies.

  • Dear Dassana, I have tried quite a lot of baking recepies from your blog. They all turn out to be perfect. I love the fact that you use simple ingredients that are mostly available in the Indian kitchen. You have simplified baking for me! Thank you so much! Lots of best wishes and may God bless you:)

    • we are pleased to know this dimple and glad you could bake perfectly :) thankyou so much and god bless you too.

  • You r just amazing Dassana . I tried this recipe of eggless cookies n it came out very well. U r just perfect for cooking a healthy n tasty food. Keep cooking n sharing healthy recipes with us. All the best?

  • Hi...cookies r yummy....I have a small doubt. ..u have used aluminum dish...can I bake aluminum in microwave convection oven..I have these 3 aluminium vessels which came with cooker. can I use these? Or I should test it? How?

    • swechha, i am not sure about the aluminium vessels which came with cooker, if they can be used in the oven. the aluminum pans i have is basically meant for baking only. thus they withstand the high heat during baking. in the convection mode, you can use aluminium pans, but not in the microwave or combination mode. if in the convection mode, you see sparks coming from the pan (called as arcing), then don't use aluminium pan. if this thing happens, then it means there is a fault in the oven.

  • In a microwave convection oven is it good enough if the oven goes upto 200 degrees? Just got a new one and realised that it was upto 200 degrees. Also, is there any timing difference between a regular OTG and a convection microwave? Can convection microwaves also bake for a long time without getting overheated?

    • even the oven i have has 200 degrees celsius as the max temperature. in a OTG the baking is slower as compared to in the convection mode of the microwave oven. so either you reduce the temper by 12 to 20 degrees less or reduce the time by 15 to 20 minutes. i have only baked in the convection mode maximum for about 40 minutes. not more than that. so not sure about the overheating part.

  • Hi.
    I love your recipes..and these cookies look super delicious.
    Can you please tell me if I could substitute chocolate chips with normal chocolate cut into small pieces as I don't have chocolate chips at home

  • thanks dear for providing such a useful site for us
    whatever i try from this it always turns out fabulously delicious.
    i just wanted ask one think how to make these cookies crunchier from inside too as we find in market ones

  • Tried dis recipe tdy itself...n to ur surprise, I made it in a flat idli cooker.. it turned to b yummiiee..ma kids liked it a lottt...all thanks to u...ur doin a great work..ur recipes really work great for me...kip on posting such tasty n healthy recipes..stay blessed..thanks agn..☺

    • pleased to know this khushi :) thankyou so much for your honest and encouraging words. god bless you too.

  • Hi D.Amit
    Hope u r good. Just wanna know if anyway can I make this baked recipes without a microwave, as I don't have any ?. But I am very much interested to prepare the muffins n cookies n the yummy cake that you have posted

  • I made these today.. They came out very well.. More like muffins with a crust than cookies i should say.. I have been searching for something like this to give to my toddler who can't really chew but likes biscuits.. Thank you so much..

    • welcome always aarthi and glad to know you liked the muffins :) thankyou for your kind and positive words.

  • I followed your recipe, baked in my microwave in convection mode for 20 mins. The cookies were crisp initially. But the next day, the cookies became very soft. Any idea why?

    • sowmya, these are soft cookies. so they will become soft. i have mentioned about the cookies being soft in the post.

  • Hi, recently tried out alot of ur recipes n they turn out really well.. Thnx a ton... I wanted to knw if we can make these cookies with a microwave with a grill and combi type..I don't hv convection mode..

    • welcome prachi. i don't think so you can make this way. however i have never tried making them in microwave.

  • Great & easy recipe. But the dough I made became sticky. I tried adding extra flour, oil. But it didn't help. What might be the problem? And solution?

    • for sticky dough, just addition of some flour should solve the issue. no need to add oil. some more flour could have corrected the problem.

    • instead of curd, add vinegar or lemon juice. i suggest to overall add 1/2 tablespoon vinegar or lemon juice. instead of milk, use almond or cashew milk or any nut based milk.

    • looks like they got baked too much. too much baking will make them hard. the temperatures in oven vary, so baking can take less or more time. sugar depends on individual taste preferences. you can also sprinkle some powdered sugar from above, if the cookies had come out well.

      • So to make ten times this number I can just increase al ingredients ten times? Just double checking as with baking, usually it doesn't work. Thanks for your prompt response!

        • yes. usually with baking doubling on increasing the recipe works. this is true for cookies, pies, breads and laminated doughs like croissant, puff pastries etc. but for cake can be tricky.

  • heya! i tried making this in the oven and they turned out to be very cakey not crunchy! and also they were looking like small choco chip baatis ? . will you tell me which step went wrong ?

    • shaila, the recipe is for cakey and soft cookies. these are not crunchy cookies. i have already mentioned this in the post. the recipe ingredients are such that they will give a soft texture in the cookies. no step of yours has gone wrong.

  • Hello,
    I always love your receipes. They are so easy and convenient to make.
    I was planning on making the Chocolate cookies and couldn't find the receipe for one. So following this receipe - could tell me how much cocoa powder do i need to add instead of chocolate chip cookies?

    • thanks neha. i have not yet posted chocolate cookies recipe. you can add 1 to 2 tbsp cocoa powder. you will need to add some more milk to bind the dough.

  • Hi
    Love all your recipes..Was planning to make these wonderful chocolate chip cookies.Could you please tell me how to make them crispy like we get them at cookie shops.

    • bhumika, for crispiness the recipe will change a lot. since i always test and add recipes, i will try to add the crisp and chewy version of choco chips cookies soon.

  • Hi,
    I tried the recipe today but the cookies came out very hard i do not know what went wrong,
    the sweetness was very low i think i just added 2/12/ table spoons of sugar.
    Can please tell me in grams for the sugar, coco,etc.
    However i love all your recipes and i have tried many it was par excellence.
    Please let me know about the cookies becos I want to perfect it.

    • thanks manjunath. either the cookies have been baked too much or the dough was not mixed very well. i will try to update the recipe with grams equivalents.

  • Thanks a ton for the easiest , tastiest and most importantly healthier version of cookies ?

  • Hi!

    It's an awesome recipe. I would like to clarify if it's okay to use canola oil or butter.

    • Welcome Shilpa. Don't use canola oil. I would suggest to use butter instead of canola oil. I have not read positive things about canola oil in internet.

  • Your recipes are awesome. I 've tried your regular atta cookies also. They came out very good, just crunchy on the outside and soft inside. Kids loved them. Just want to clarify one issue. When I set my otg on baking mode only the bottom element comes on. You have mentioned that both should be on. How should I do that?

    • thanks visalakshi. glad to know. in baking mode, the bottom element is on. in toast mode, both the elements are on. so for baking, you can use the toast mode. i also use it at times for some recipes like cookies and cakes.

    • you can use 180 degrees celsius. i have mentioned in recipe card. but bake only in the convection mode of microwave oven.

  • This recipe is superb - my cookies got burnt and hard the first time - but now i have a hang of it. Have a special request to make - I want recipe for wholewheat eggless oats and raisin cookies.. Kindly post if possible.

    • thanks k. i have noted down the recipe request and will try to add these cookies in some months.

  • Hiiii dasanna... I just love ur recipes and d way to present it is just great...one doubt I want to use butter instead of oil...what are the changes I have to make in d recipe...and baking duration in microwave convection type..

    • Welcome Neha. Thanks for your kind words. You can bake the cookies at 180 degree celsius. timing will vary from oven to oven. so can't say.

  • I love your recipes...aI regularly bake these cookies for my toddler as it is soft and not brisk like regular cookies and my toddler likes it. Instead of sugar I used organic jaggery and it came out very well. Thanks for sharing such a beautiful recipe.

  • Hi ,

    have tried the recipe and skipped vinegar(as it wasnt avaiable).. I am using LG model.. Preheated the oven at 180 degree and cooked for 20 minutes.. its very hard... My only question is in convention mode how long should we bake? 40min?

    • seema, oven temperatures vary. usually convection ovens bakes faster than OTG. so you can bake for less time like 10 to 15 minutes. also i hope you have only used the convection mode and combination mode of microwave and convection.if combination mode is used than the cookies will become hard.

      depending on the recipe you are making, cut down 10 to 15 minutes less when baking in convection mode. either cut down the time or reduce the temperature by 10 to 15 degrees.

  • Hi...I just love all your recipes...Your site is the first place I go to,when I make vegetarian food...would love to make this for my little one...just wanted to know how many days the cookies will last when kept in airtight container at normal temperature?

    • thanks nisha. in this cookies, since curd is used, its best to refrigerate them. at room temperature you can keep for a max 2 to 3 days in an airtight box or jar.

  • Can i use butter instead of oil? If yes please let me know the proportion to be used. Im making it for my daughter.

  • Hello! The outer part of my cookie has become very hard and the inner part is as soft as a cake. What should I do?

    • Anita, now nothing can be done. it seems the cookies have become too much baked from the top. when baking cookies, don't keep the baking tray close to the top heating rod.

  • Idk maybe my microwave is different but it's manual suggests time for convection mode to be set at 50 minutes. And i don't think you specified the time for microwave so should it be the same as the time for oven? (15-25minutes)
    Also I can't really tell if the cookies are cooked or not. I baked them for like 12-13minutes but they haven't turned golden but have become a bit hard. Please help.

    • for convection mode of microwave oven, preheating time is 15 minutes. its same as that for a regular oven. the time of baking will differ though as each oven has a different temperature. but generally in a microwave oven the baking is faster due to the fan in it.

      you can press the cookies with a spoon or your fingertips. it there is no impression on them, then it means the cookies are baked. be careful when pressing with fingers as the cookies are hot. if the cookies are baked too much, they will turn hard.
