Egg less malai or milk topping cookies.
A very easy to make cookie. Perfect for kiddos.

You don’t need baking powder, soda, butter or ghee/clarified butter to make these delicious cookies.

Need only 3  ingredients in equal quantity with little cardamom powder or vanilla. Use the flavour of your choice.
I adopted the recipe from Nita Mehta’s cookbook.

I made one with whole wheat flour and added little red colour to make it attractive.
And white one is made with all purpose flour.

Recipe

Milk topping or malai  – 1/2 cup

Powdered sugar  – 1/2 cup

Whole wheat flour/atta or all purpose flour/maida – 1/2 cup

Cardamom powder or vanilla  – 1/2 teaspoon

Almonds or cashew nuts ( split into two)  – as require

Method

Grease an oven tray and keep aside.
Preheat the oven at 200 degrees.

Mix malai and sugar lightly. Sift atta or maida.
Add the maida or atta and cardamom powder or vanilla to the malai mixture.

Add flavour of your choice. I used cardamom powder. Knead lightly to form a soft dough.

Form round balls and flatten slightly. If the dough is too soft and difficult to form balls keep it in the refrigerator for 5-10 minutes and then shape them.

Place the balls on oven tray 1” apart.
Place almonds or cashew nuts on each cookie. You can sprinkle little cardamom powder on each cookie too. I didn’t.

For red colour cookies added little red colour in the dough. Flatten the dough on a plate to cut hearts with a cookie cutter.
Bake in the preheated oven for 8-10 minutes. Or until the edges of the cookies are golden and the top still whitish.

Remove tray from the oven and quickly and carefully lift the cookies off with all knife. Keep them to cool and become crisp.
Enjoy with tea or coffee.

Recipe

Whole wheat flour or atta  – 1 cup
Ground oats  – 1/2 cup

Powdered sugar  – 1/2 cup + 1 teaspoon if you want to add tutti fruity or raisins if not take 3/4 cup

Oil  – 1/2  cup

Ripe bananas  – 4

Cinnamon powder  – 1 teaspoon

Cardamom powder  – 1/2 teaspoon

Baking soda – 1/2 teaspoon

Baking powder  – 1 teaspoon

Vinegar  – 1 tablespoon

Tutti fruity or chocochips or any dry fruits  – 1/4 cup

Method

Preheat the oven at 180 degrees. If you are using OTG preheat for 10 minutes.

Grease a cake tin and dust with  flour. Keep it aside.

Mash the banana with a fork or blend in the blender. I used my grinder to mash it well.

Beat sugar and oil well.I like less sweet but you can add 3/4 cup sugar to make it more sweet. Add mashed banana and mix well.

Now add both flour cinnamon and cardamom powder, baking powder and mix well.

In a small bowl add vinegar with soda. Stir well and mix in the cake batter .

Add tutti fruity or chocochips or dry fruits whatever you have. Fold it nicely. I want to use tutti fruity but there was only 1 teaspoon in my pantry so added cashew nuts and raisins.

Pour in the greased and flour dusted cake tin. Tap lightly. Bake for 35-40 minutes. Every oven takes different time.

Mine takes 30 minutes. Check with a toothpick. Bake until the toothpick comes out clean.

Let it cool down.
I sprinkled little powdered sugar on it.

Slice and enjoy the soft moist and yummy cake with tea or coffee.
