Then add desiccated coconut to it and sift whole wheat flour, salt, baking powder, and cornflour in it. mix it and knead it into a soft dough by adding 2 to 3 tablespoons of milk in it.

Now, rest the coconut cookie dough in the refrigerator for 10 minutes, make sure to cover the cookie dough before keeping it in the refrigerator as it may dry out.

Then take a small portion of dough and roll it into a ball, flatten the dough slightly with the help of your palm and coat it with desiccated coconut.

(Note: Don’t flatten the cookie dough too much)

Arrange the cookie dough in the baking tray and also make sure to leave little space between each cookie. Bake it in a preheated oven at 180 degrees C for 20 to 25 minutes or until it becomes slightly golden from the top.

Top tips

✔️Butter can be substituted with coconut oil, unsalted butter ghee, or any flavorless oil.

✔️Normal powdered sugar can be substituted with brown sugar or powdered jaggery.

✔️Don’t use coconut flakes as they can’t be easily mixed with the dough because they are too large compared to desiccated coconut.

✔️Keep an eye while baking as every oven/OTG temperature may vary. Do not overcrowd.

✔️Store it in an airtight container at normal room temperature for 3 to 4 days. In the refrigerator it stays good for a week.
