Ragi Cookies

I wanted to try some healthy cookies. Thought of using ragi flour as that was what I had on hand. The first time I made it I was not happy with the results as I could taste the raw nutty flavour of ragi flour in every bite I took. Thought of roasting the flour next time and also added a little dry roasted oats to cut down the nutty flavour and yes it worked. The cookies came out great and I loved every bite of it

Eating all-flour cookies all the time makes me feel guilty. Once in a while eating these goodness filled cookies helps us in enjoying munchies guilt-free. A trial which turned out to be a hit in our kitchen. The kids did not eat coz of the colour which they did not feel very inviting. For me and my hubby it tasted perfect and we enjoyed eating all of them :)

Serves... 4 ppl
Serve option... Room Temp

This is what u'll need...

Butter - 1/4 cup
Powdered jaggery - 1/4 cup
Powdered sugar - 2 tbspn
Ragi flour - 1/2 cup
Baking powder - 1/ tspn
Oats - 3 tbspn
Cardamom powder - a pinch (optional)
Granulated Sugar - 1 tbspn (optional)

Here is the stir....
    • Preheat the oven at 180 degrees
    • Place room temperature soft butter into a wide bowl 
    • Add powdered jaggery to the butter and mix it well using a fork. Keep mixing till the mixture turns very light and fluffy

    • Dry roast ragi flour and add it to the butter mix
    • Add 1/4 teaspoon of baking powder into the flour
    • Dry roast the oats and add it to the flour
    • Add 2 tablespoons of powdered sugar. This is optional. I felt that when I added only jaggery in the first batch it tasted a little salty
    • Sprinkle little cardamom powder. This is optional too
    • Pull the dough together using a fork. If you feel the dough is very crumbly and will not come together, then add a tablespoon or two of milk
    • Pinch out balls of dough and flatten it
    • Mark a small cross on top of the cookie and then press the top slightly in some granulated sugar
    • Place these in a baking tray
    • Bake the cookies in a 180 degrees preheated oven for about 15-17 minutes
    • When done let it cool completely and then store it in an airtight container
    • Pick one any time and enjoy munching

                                              • Roasting flour and adding oats gives a nice flavour to the cookies
                                              • Adding sugar cuts down the saltiness added by jaggery
                                              • These cookies took a little longer than regular all-purpose flour cookies
