  2. For chocolate dough, repeat the above process and just add cocoa powder and 1 teaspoon water. Keep it in the fridge for 20 minutes.

  5. Cut both the doughs into three strips. Alternate them. Keep one strip of chocolate then a vanilla strip and then again a chocolate strip. And another with vanilla-chocolate-vanilla applying corn flour mix in between.
  6. Keep it in the fridge for 1 hr. After an hour, cut both the dough again into three equal strips.
  7. Again alternate them to make the checkerboard pattern. Cut into cookies of 1cm width.
