Jowar Dry Dates Cookies


  • 300g jowar flour
  • 300g dry date powder
  • 3/4 cup macadamia nuts
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence
  • 1 tsp cinnamon powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt



  1. Warm the macadamia nuts and crush them in a grinder till a little oil is released.
  2. Mix all the ingredients.
  3. Rub the ingredients together till the flour can be gathered into a crumbly ball.
  4. Add a little hot water at a time to knead the dough. It will not come together like wheat and will remain crumbly. That’s fine. Don’t add too much water in the effort to make a dough or the cookies will become soggy.
  5. Make balls of the dough, roll them out to about half cm thickness. Again, they’ll have cracks but let that be.
  6. Cut them into shapes.
  7. Place the cookies in an oven tray lined with parchment paper.
  8. Bake in a preheated oven at 170-degree Celsius for 20-25 minutes.
