Step 3) Now add in the flour and mix until well combined. Divide the dough into 2 equal portions. O am making both vanilla and chocolate flavor cookies today.
Step 4) Add cocoa powder to one half of the dough and mix well until even.
Step 5) Now roll it on a plastic wrap and make a rod, make sure all the sides are equal. Freeze the dough for 20 minutes.
Now after 2 minutes Divide the dough into 3 equal pieces and then stack alternatively (black-white-black and white-black-white)
Step 6) Again divide the dough into 3 equal portions and stack it again alternatively , glue with water or melted butter to keep them fixed. Start form one side and cut it into small squares.
Step 7) Preheat the cooker for 15 minutes with a layer of salt and a stand. Arrange the cookies on a plate (I have used Idli plate) and bake it for 20 -25 minutes on medium heat without the cooker weight.
