1. Dry roast the Gram flour till the nice aroma comes out from the flour. Allow it to cool down completely.
2. Cut the pista nuts in to very thin slices.
3. Now add the roasted flour, icing sugar, cardamom powder and oil in a wide bowl.
4. Knead them into a soft and pliable dough.
5. Roll the dough into 1/4 inch thickness circle (like chapathi) on the dry rolling surface using the rolling pin. Before rolling, sprinkle the wheat flour over the rolling surface to avoid the flour getting sticky.
6. Sprinkle the chopped pista over the rolled surface and press them gently.  Now cut the rolled circle using the cookie cutter. I have used star shape cutter.
7. Take out the cookies using the flat spatula and keep it on the ungreased baking tray. Leave ½ inch space between the cookies.

9. Bake the cookies for 8 mins at 180 degree Celsius.
10. Allow it to cool down completely and then take them out from the tray. Again cool them on wire rack.
