  1. Just bought a bag of Quinoa flour without knowing what I was going to do with it! Now
    Padhu can I use it in place of wheat? Probably healthier?

    1. Yes, you can. You can even make dosas with that flour by mixing it with a little urad dal batter or dosa batter.

  2. Hi
    Can we do this in pressure cooker.

    1. Yes, you can. Follow the same method as given in my vanilla cake in pressure cooker. Keep checking as I am not sure of the time.

  3. The cookies turned out yummy. I was planning to do half the qty but then did the whole thing and it got over soon! My kids are pestering me to do it again!! I felt very satisfied with tb cookied as these are healthier than the store bought ones, for the brown sugar, wheat flour, lots of nuts and dry fruits. Thanks.
