  1. Hi Aarthi,
    Lovely cookies... Can you suggest a method to bake them without an oven? In a microwave?

    1. if u have convection mode, you can bake

  2. Is there a substitute for butter? Can I use regular oil or coconut oil instead?

    1. u can use oil. But the texture of cookies will be a bit diff

  3. can i make it without moulds just like as nankhatai

    1. if u want to make as normal cookies. then chill the dough for 1 hour, then take a small portion and roll it out. then flatten slightly and bake

  4. these short breads look so delicious

  5. Wow tempting. Excellent Aarthi
