’tis the season for indulging in some choco chip cookies!

Cookies are a very comforting snack. Both – kids and adults – love nice, warm, home-baked cookies.

This Christmas, make delicious and healthy puffed rajgira and aata cookies at home. Top them with some choco chips to add some extra love. It would be a lot of fun if you bake these cookies with your kids or grandkids – if they are at home for their Christmas holidays!

The recipe is very easy. While baking the cookies, let them get slight cracks on the top. This will give a nice, crunchy texture to the cookies.
