  1. Hi,
    Happy Navratri
    Need your help again, currently I don’t have my microwave with me,but I have gas tandor/bati maker,can I bake biscuits n cake in that, if yes what’s the process for both?

    • happy navratri vibha. you can use bati maker. i think it should work. process i do not know as i have never used it. but if you have made bati before in it, then use the same method and make the cookies.

  2. Hi
    Thanks for your recipe. The taste turned out to be great though they were a bit hard.
    Can you please help on this?

    • these cookies are soft. so i guess baking time must be too much and thus they have hardened. next time you can try baking for less minutes.

  3. Hey dassana,

    Cookies were awesome, my lo old loved it. Whole wheat n jaggery combo is healthy n tasty too. All ur receipts are fool proof. I have tried many of them.
    I would like to know, how to make them crunchy, so that I can use them like teething biscuits .
    Thanks
    Sushmitha

    • thanks a lot sushmitha. glad to know that your little one loved it. to make them crunchy, you will need to use butter and the technique will also change. you can either beat butter till smooth or mix it with flour and crumble till you get a bread crumb like texture. if whipping butter, then use softened butter. if mixing with flour, then use chilled butter. then add remaining ingredients. mix gently and bring the mixture together. do not knead. you can use 1/3rd cup butter in this recipe.
