Whole Wheat Flour Cookies in Pressure Cooker



          No oven? No problem. You can now dish out these amazing cookies in a pressure cooker. So let me share my first attempt at making few whole wheat flour cookies that I relished as an evening tea-time snack. It is very easy and simple to make. 

          You just need some salt to be placed in the pressure cooker for the cookies to be baked and in no time you have yummy home baked  goodies to be devoured. So check for a step by step method with pictures to prepare it.














  • 1 cup whole wheat flour (makes around 14)
  • 1/4 tsp. baking powder
  • pinch of salt
  • 1/4 tsp. cardamom powder
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/2 cup chilled butter
  • 1/4 cup milk or as required
  • melted butter / ghee
  • few sliced pistachios 
  • 2 cups salt















          In a bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and cardamom powder. Then add the butter and mix well so that it now resembles breadcrumbs.

          Add the cardamom powder and milk, little at a time and knead into a dough. Divide into small equal portions. Give a round flat shape to each of them and make few slits with a knife. 

          Place a pinch of the sliced pista in the centre and arrange them in a greased idli stand. Place the salt in the bottom of a pressure cooker and place a stand over it.

          Preheat the cooker on a medium flame for 10 minutes. Now gently place the idli stand in it and close with the lid, but without the vent.

          Cook on a low flame for 10-15 minutes. Keep checking for doneness. Switch off the flame and let it remain as it is for another 5 minutes. 

           Brush with some melted butter / ghee and cool them on a wire rack. Store in an airtight container. Serve as a tea-time snack or as and when desired.
