Eggless Walnut Cookies

Recipe For Egg-less Walnut Cookie


  • Maida (All Purpose Flour) - 1.5 cups
  • Rava - 1/2 cup
  • Sugar - 1 cup
  • Butter/ Ghee - 1 cup (at room temperature)
  • Baking Soda - 1/2 tsp
  • Baking Powder - 1 tsp
  • Chopped Walnuts - 1/4 cup + 1/4 cup


  1. Cream the butter and sugar together with a wooden stick or with an electric blender.
  2. In a separate bowl, mix together the maida, rava, 1/4 cup of chopped walnuts and baking soda.
  3. Mix this with the creamed butter sugar mixture. Knead everything together to form a soft dough.
  4. The butter should be just enough to make a soft dough. If needed add just 1 or 2 spoons of milk.
  5. Pinch small balls out and shape it into small cookies. Press some more chopped nuts on top.
  6. Alternatively, roll out the dough and cut out different shapes using a cookie cutter.
  7. Bake it for 15 minutes in a 350 degree F oven.
  8. The cookies will be very soft at this stage. Let it cool and harden for 15 minutes.
  9. Enjoy the cookies with tea. Store in air tight containers for up-to a month.

I substituted whole wheat for rava and didn't very precisely measure. They didn't come out exactly like the pictures, but they were good! Next time I'll try more carefully following the recipe, since I found my measurements were off enough that they final cookies were too sweet.

Thanks for sharing your feedback. Do try it out again. I'm sure you will get it perfectly next time.

can I use aata (whole wheat) instead of maida?
Person   ()
Aata does not give good binding like the maida. The cookie will be crumbly. Otherwise taste will be fine.
