Now heat the cooker in med flame, so that while we're ready with the biscuits, the cooker will also be preheated and ready.

Once the dough is cold, sprinkle some atta in a rolling board/working platform. Now shape the dough and make it smooth.

Roll it gently to about 2 cms or as your preference. Traditional ones are very thin like 1 cm. Now cut the biscuits using a knife or a cookie cutter.

Grease a plate or a cake tin with some ghee and place the cookies. Transfer the cake tin to the cooker and bake the cookies for 10 mins in low-med flame.

Keep an eye, some stoves med flame might not be same as mine. Cookies can burn in a matter of few seconds. Keep checking cookies after 7-8 mins.

Once the cookies are baked, let them cool
