Eggless almond ghee residue biscuits are healthy and tasty. The main healthy ingredient in this bake is ghee residue, which is a diary byproduct obtained during ghee preparation. This is a refined sugar free, refined flour free recipe with goodness of almond and whole wheat flour. These ghee residue biscuits are crunchy and munchy.

The other healthy ingredient in this biscuits is ghee residue. After making ghee, we always used to throw away the residue. Thanks to my food blogger friend Shri kripa, for let us know the use of this ghee residue in cooking through her baking recipes. It’s been long time since wanted to try ghee residue in baking cookies.

Ghee is an integral part of Indian cooking and Ayurveda medicine. It makes the dish delicious and flavorful. Ghee can be prepared at home very easily.

Ghee preparation method I follow is collect the thick cream everyday from milk, refrigerate in airtight container. Next churn the cream with a tablespoon of curd using a mixer jar. Collect the butter from top and separate the buttermilk. Heat the butter on medium flame, ghee separates from the residue.

Collect the ghee residue and use this healthy ingredient for baking or chapati dough preparation. During age old days, ghee residue was used for massaging children, as it is nutritionally high with essential fattyacids. In this recipe, I have used less of butter than normal replacing it with ghee residue and this is blessing in disguise when you have less butter in your pantry.

We love this Eggless Almond Ghee Residue Biscuits and bake this whenever I prepare ghee at home. Do try this crunchy biscuits and serve with hot milk or coffee.

Since these biscuits are thin, care to be taken not to burn them.
During dough preparation do not add too much milk or knead the dough.
