About Atta Cardamom Cookies Recipe

These cookies remind me of my grandmother. Those days there weren’t too many ready made snacks available in the stores. There wasn’t too much variety in biscuits too. She would get atta biscuits made in a local bakery. She would give them atta, ghee, sugar and cardamom and collect the biscuits next day. The biscuits were made in a clay oven. They had a nice aroma of cardamom.

Atta Cardamom Cookies

Ingredients to make Atta Cardamom Cookies

  • 3/4 cup milk topping (cream/ malai)
  • 1 1/4 cup atta (whole wheat flour)
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 10 green cardamoms
  • 10 -12 almonds halved

How to make Atta Cardamom Cookies

  1. Mix cream and sugar.
  2. Powder the seeds of the cardamom and mix to cream sugar mixture.
  3. Add atta. Mix with hands to get a soft dough.
  4. Preheat the oven to 200 degrees C.
  5. To make cookies, take a marble size ball of the dough and press it between palms. Place a half almond and press it.
  6. Arrange on a greased baking tray keeping some gap between cookies.
  7. Bake for 10 minutes or till the cookies turn golden from the edges (it takes 8 to 10 minutes).
  8. Store in an air tight container when cookies become cold.

My Tip:

Add 1 teaspoon vanilla extract in place of cardamom and you get fragrant vanilla cookies
