Orange + Cardamom Bajra Cookies (GF)

This may come as a surprise to you from me – a very healthy cookie, with no eggs, no flour, no butter and even no refined sugar! What’s the point, you ask me (and I did ask myself the same when I heard of it). Perhaps age does that to you – puts food and indulgence into perspective and while I am not entirely thrilled with idea of this, it’s just something I need to get my head around.

This cookie works wonders as a sweet treat while trying to maintain your diet. And it’s even gluten free! Now, I must warn you, this cannot possibly compared to a real cookie, this is a small, slightly grainy in texture, and crumbles very easily. It is meant to curb your cookie craving while you are on a savage diet that tends to eliminate the ‘good stuff’; having said that, this is pretty darn good even when you’re not in such a severe situation.

This tastes delicious with a cup of Indian masala tea, Kashmiri Kahwa tea and simply on it’s own too! I recommend making small shaped cookies to successfully bake without breaking into bits. Also it’s a fairly heavy bite, and you would not be able to eat a large cookie in this.

This is great for the elderly as well as the kids! (And you!)

Note: To make walnut paste, pulse down 1/3 cup of walnuts until you achieve a paste.

Note 2: It is recommended to have each ingredient cold or refrigerated for at least 10 to 15 minutes prior.
