This is a flourless,cookie made with powdered nuts.You can make a single

nut powdered cookie.I have tried with almond and cashew .You could try

with only cashewnuts,only almonds or only pistachios or a blend of all

three.So it’s up to you to make the choice.

You could decorate the top with nuts of your choice.

An important note about this cookie is that it does not have any oil,or butter

in the dough.

You could use powdered candy (panagalkandu in Tamil)as a substitute for

sugar.So… let’s get into the recipe


2 cups powdered almond

2 cups powdered cashewnuts

2.5 or 2 cups sugar ..depending on your taste

a pinch of salt

1/4 cup milk mixed in a pinch of kesar or yellow color

1/2 tsp powdered cardamon

A pinch of nutmeg.


Mix all the dry ingredients together .

Add milk enough to bind .Do not knead.

Roll out into shapes you like and bake in a moderate oven (175 degrees)for

12 minutes or till done.It will turn crisp when it is cool so don’t worry if it’s

soft .Allow to cool and store.
