Today I am sharing a very easy and delicious cookie recipe. I baked after a long time and felt so good. My house is aromatic with cardamom flavor. Did you know that Elaichi / Cardamom is one of the most expensive spices ? Yes it is because of the labour intensive work involved. One of most important ingredients for desserts ,cakes and cookies. This is one of my favorite spice after Cumin /Jeera. I relish my Tea with Elaichi. Elaichi Cookies / Cardamom Cookies are so flavorful and addictive. This is absolutely irresistible.

What is a Cookie?

A cookie is a baked or cooked snack or dessert that is typically small, flat and sweet. It usually consists of flour , oil , butter ,eggs, sugar. There are many eggless variations these days. Lot of recipes use butter or clarified butter .Flavors vary with addition of oats , choco chips ,raisins , nuts etc. I love mildly sweet cookies.

  1. You can use butter instead of ghee.
  2. Please remember baking time varies from oven to oven . So adjust the baking time accordingly.
  3. You can make this cookie only with Besan and Rava too.
  4. Add dry fruits and seeds of your choice .This is completely optional.
  5. I have used coconut sugar. You can reduce the quantity and use refined sugar if you wish to.
  6. Use freshly ground  Elaichi powder for best results.

    These Elaichi Cookies look so crunchy. Perfect to dunk in some coffee or tea. Like the addition of trail mix and best part is that you’ve used coconut sugar, making it a bit friendly for diabetics.

    Feel like grabbing the broken bit of cookie that you are holding out in the pic. It says it all!! I am quite impressed at the harmonious combination of ingredients- semolina, chickpea flour, APF flour, coconut sugar and cardamom. I will book mark this cookie recipe. Nice post.
