Ragi biscuits

ragi biscuits I saw this recipe in aayis recipes and loved the idea of baking biscuits with ragi. It is quite healthy too.
I had a packet of ragi and really did not know what to do with it though I had come across a few recipes. Making biscuits sounded good to me, but somehow I never managed to make nice cookies. They always became flat after ten minutes of baking. I never came to know the reason behind the failure.
But this time,it really came out good. I followed the exact recipe, just sprinkled a few drops of milk as it seemed to be a bit dry. A good winner recipe.

Ingredients-
Ragi flour- 2cups
Powdered sugar- 1 cup
butter- 1 cup
Cardamom powder- 1/2tsp
Baking powder- 1tsp
Milk(optional)- A few drops

Method-
Roast the ragi flour for 5 minutes. Take care that it does not burn.
Then add powdered sugar, melted butter, cardamom powder ,baking powder and mix well to a dough.
(cardamom gives a really good flavour to the biscuits. As soon as I added, I could smell the typical sweet smell coming from the Indian bakery shops)
Make small balls from the dough. Flatten a little. Place them on a baking paper on a cookie tray.
Bake them at 180c in a preheated oven for 20 minutes.
Cool them and store in a air tight container.

Ragi is totally healthy, nice recipe.
Question, were they supposed to become flat after baking (like normal cookies) or are they shaped like laddus?

Divya Vikram said...

Sounds yummy n healthy too..Love the shape!

Anudivya- the biscuits are flat at teh bottom and rounded on the top...for the phootgraph . I have placed slightly one above the other..They do flatten a bit and double in size after baking..
