Crunchy Cookies

I saw the recipe for ‘Crunchy Cookies’ on a TV cookery show. I liked the recipe since it looked quite simple, very few ingredients which I had at home, it needed only Wheat Flour and the cookies were baked for just 10 mins, in the microwave of course! So it gave me a chance to utilize my microwave for something other than just reheating.


I made them and sent them to my sweet little nieces (aged 2 and 4) in Mumbai; it’s a fantastic ‘Khau’(snack) for small kids.

These ‘Crunchy Cookies’ are also my Christmas present to Zuzana of Zlamushka’s spicy Kitchen. I know Christmas is still far away but I am sending them for her blog event ‘ A Spoonful of Christmas’!

Zuzana please accept my Christmas present!



Crunchy Cookies recipe

makes ~ 12-14 cookies


1 Cup Wheat Flour, sieved

¾ Cup Powdered sugar, sieved (The original recipe asked for 1 cup sugar)

½ cup Butter (cold)

1 cup crunchy Cornflakes

1 egg

Cold water if required for kneading.


Mix the Wheat flour and sugar.

Add cold butter. I used Amul butter. If you are using unsalted butter add a pinch of salt to it.

Rub in the butter with the Flour-sugar mixture. The mixture resembles breadcrumbs.


Add the egg and mix nicely.

Add a little cold water if the mixture is too dry.

Add the cornflakes and mix nicely. The mixture should be cold. If it is not cold refrigerate it for 10-15 minutes.

Grease a microwave proof dish/tray.

Drop spoonfuls of the cookie mixture onto it .


Bake in the combi (convection/microwave) mode for 7-8 minutes or till the cookies become crisp.

Alternatively bake them at 180oC.

Allow cookies to cool on baking tray for 5 minutes and then remove them on the  wire rack to cool completely.  

Variation:I made 1 lot with the above recipe. To the next lot I added 2 tbsp drinking chocolate and they tasted yummy. 


Wish you all A very Happy and Safe Diwali!

….And Plagiarism Continues!

I never thought someone would like to steal my photos too till TBC informed me about this. J Thanks a lot TBC for informing me. Lots of hugs to you!

This is a screenshot of the Paneer Pakoda photo on My Food court:


And this is a screen shot of the stolen photo on this site:


This intelligent person does not have the comments section open; so that no one should complain about the plagiarized photos, nor did I find an Email ID through which I can ask this person to remove my stolen photo from the site.

So this is a notice to Sathy (whoever you are) to

‘Please remove the photo of Paneer pakodas from your blog immediately’.

I hope you know, you cannot steal anyone’s photos/content without that person’s permission or without giving due credits to the blog.

If you like my photo so much at least put a link back to My Foodcourt!
