  • Large bowl
  • Baking sheet


  • 125 gms All purpose flour sifted
  • 50 gms Corn flour sifted
  • 125 gms Unsalted Butter softened
  • 55 gms Powdered Sugar/ finely grated Jaggery
  • 4-5 tbsp Nolen Gur/ Liquid Jaggery***


  • Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius and lightly grease or line a baking tray with parchment paper.
  • In a large mixing bowl beat together butter and sugar/jaggery in large bowl with mixer at medium speed until soft and light.
  • Add the sifted corn flour and all purpose flour into the butter and sugar/jaggery mixture.
  • Now mix with a spatula until the dough comes together.
  • Divide the dough into 18-20 equal parts. Roll into balls, place slightly apart (1-2 inch) on the prepared tray and then flatten each biscuit lightly with your thumb in the center.
  • Cook in the preheated oven for 10-12 minutes or until firm. Remove from the oven and let the cookies sit on the tray for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool.
  • When the cookies have cooled down, add a spoonful liquid jaggery in the center and serve.


***If you don't have access to Nolen gur, just grate the patali jaggery or sugarcane jaggery and mix it with some water and slowly heat it until the jaggery is dissolved and it reaches a thick sticky consistency. Let it cool and use in your desserts.
