Atta Biscuits or Eggless Wholewheat Cookies are an ode to the old-fashioned Indian bakery cookies. They evoke nostalgia of the times when we’d get tins of warm freshly baked cookies at home from the local bakery and eat them dipped in cups of hot tea. What a treat that was!
These Atta Biscuits are as close in taste as I could get to the bakery style ones. Just simple crispy cookies, flavoured with butter and a hint of cardamom. They really do make the perfectly delightful tea time accompaniment.
They don’t need many ingredients and are quite fuss free to make. These biscuits are typically made in ghee though I’ve used butter here. The dough comes together in one bowl and needs to rest for about 30 minutes in the refrigerator so its pliable enough to be rolled out. Since there isn’t any egg in this recipe, I’ve added some milk powder just to give the cookies a tender crumb.
Cardamom powder is a popular flavouring in these biscuits, but you could certainly use some cinnamon, powdered fennel seeds, ginger powder or maybe even a small splash of rose-water. While these are absolutely lovely plain and simple, go ahead add in some nuts, seeds, chocolate chips etc, if you like.
