Easy to make, delicious to eat, Cookies made without oven in Cooker.. Mostly known as Shortbread cookies.


Plain flour 1/2 Cup (8 tbs)
Butter/Margarine 1/4 Cup (4 tbs)
Powdered sugar 1/4 Cup (4 tbs)
Vanilla 1/2 Teaspoon
Lemon zest 1/4 Teaspoon
Dark chocolate/Milk chocolate 1/4 Cup (4 tbs)



Heat up your pressure cooker/idli cooker with about 2 cups of salt, wire rack and a perforated plate in medium flame.


In a bowl, beat butter until smooth. Tip in the sugar and beat until light and fluffy.

Now add in the vanilla and lemon zest and mix this well. Add in the maida/flour and mix until the dough forms. Do not Knead, just mix.

Take a cake tin/utensil/baking dish and grease it well with some oil. Make portions of the dough and make a round ball.

Keep the balls in the utensil and spread it. Transfer this to the hot cooker. Close and bake for 15 mins in med flame.

After 15 mins, take the cookies out and let them cool.

Melt some chocolate. Dip the room temp cookies in the chocolate and let them set!


Serve as a snack.


You can use Idli tray to bake these but that makes cookies with dome on both sides. 

Bake this cookies in medium flame. Keep a eye after 10 mins to prevent the burning. 

In an electric oven bake these at 180 C for 15 min.

I like the chocolate to be chilled quickly
