Baking powder – 1/2 teaspoon

Baking soda – 1/4 teaspoon

Grease a baking tray or line with parchment paper.


In a bowl mix pearl millet or bajra flour/atta, oats powder, sesame seeds or til, baking powder, soda and cardamom powder.

In a large bowl cream together clarified butter/ghee and powdered sugar. Beat well.

Add the dry ingredients. Mix well and make a smooth dough. Add little milk if require. I have added 1 tablespoon milk. You can use little more if you feel your dough is dry.

Take 1 tablespoon from the dough and make small balls out of it. Place on a greased tray 1 inch apart.

Press gently. Make a criss cross with a knife on every cookies.

Bake in preheated oven at 180° for 10 – 12 minutes or until the edges becomes light brown.

Don’t overbake. And don’t touch the cookies when hot. The cookies will soft when hot but they will turn crisp when cool.

So let the cookies cool down completely before serving. Store in an airtight container for later use.
Enjoy the mouth melting cardamom flavoured cookies with your tea or coffee.

Happy baking 🙂

Batter Up With Sujata

I am Sujata Roy. A homemaker, a doting mother to two beautiful grown up children, a blogger, a passionate cook and lastly a foodie. Experimenting in the kitchen is what I love and enjoy doing the most. Specially experimenting with vegetarian dishes and egg-less cakes and cookies is what interests me more. My loved ones are fond of vegetarian cuisines, so I have them in my mind whenever I dish out a new recipe. However, I do not limit my experimental cooking to vegetarian recipes only, non-vegetarian recipe ideas are also dished out. Thank you for visiting my blog. Happy Cooking!
