  • 1 Cup less 2 Tbsp Wheat Flour
  • 2 Tbsp Corn Flour
  • 60 g Butter, Unsalted At Room Temperature
  • 1 Tbsp Oil
  • 1/4 Cup 40 g Brown Sugar
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Essence
  • 2 to 4 Tbsp Milk At Room Temperature
  • 1/4 Cup Chocolate Chips
  • 1/4 tsp Salt


  1. Sift wheat flour, cornflour and salt. Sifting incorporates air into the flour which makes the cookies light.

  2. Beat butter, oil, vanilla essence, and jaggery powder for 3 to 4 minutes till the mix gets light and fluffy.

  3. Add milk, just 2 tbsp, and mix so that milk is lo incorporated well in the butter mix.

  4. Add flour into the butter mix in 2 or 3 batches mixing lightly after each addition.
  5. Just bring the mix together with light hands without kneading.
  6. If the mix is still too dry, add 1 or 2 tablespoon milk.

  7. Reserve some chocolate chips for putting on the top and add the rest of these into the cookie mix
  8. Mix lightly.
  9. Start preheating the air fryer at 180 degrees C. Preheat it for 5 to 7 minutes. During this time, form cookies.
  10. For this take little dough and flatten it a little by pressing between your palms.
  11. Similarly, make all other cookies. You will get approximately 16  small size cookies.

  12. Now, put some chocolate chips on each of the cookies and press lightly so that they stick there. (Along with the chocolate chips, I used the dust of it also which gave very nice look to the cookies)
  13. Place all the cookies in the air fryer basket. You can keep close to each other as they will not spread much.
  14. Reduce the temperature to 160 degrees and air-fry the cookies for 15 to 18 minutes.

  15. After taking them out let them cool completely on a wire rack.

Recipe Notes

  1. Butter should be at room temperature.
  2.  Skip salt if using salted butter.
  3. You can substitute chopped chocolate with choco chips.
  4. Initially add little milk only. Add more milk if required.
  5. After adding milk in the beaten butter-jaggery mix, it will be slightly difficult to mix as butter and milk will remain separate but after mixing for a minute it will be fine.
  6. Each oven/air fryer is different. So, keep an eye on the cookies 10 minutes onwards.
  7. Choco chips pressed on the top gives not only good taste but also improves the looks, so do not skip these.
