  • Maida / All purpose flour - 1 cup
  • Powdered Sugar - 1/2 cup
  • Butter - 1/2 cup melted and at room temperature
  • Freshly desiccated Coconut - 1/2 cup
  • Cardamom Powder - 2 tsp
  • Baking Powder - 1 tsp
  • Milk - 2 tbsp


  1. Sift all purpose flour, baking powder together and keep it aside.
  2. Add butter at room temperature and sugar in another bowl and mix well.
  3. Now add all purpose flour, sugar, grated coconut, cardamom powder, milk and mix well with your hands to make a soft dough.
  4. Take a small portion of dough and flatten it gently with your hands and place it on cookie tray.
  5. Keep at least 1 inch distance between each cookie.
  6. Preheat oven at 180 °C.
  7. Set the timer for 15 minutes and place the cookie tray for baking at the same temperature.
  8. When the edges start turning golden, remove from the oven and place them on wire rack for cooling.
  9. When they have completely cooled down store them in an air-tight container. You can enjoy them with your morning or evening tea/coffee.

Recipe Notes

My first batch of cookies took 18 minutes and remaining cookies 15 minutes. So, if you see that the cookie colour has not changed to light brown on the edges keep them in oven for few more minutes and keep a watch on them. Add milk only if you feel the dough is not soft enough.
