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.

  1. Roast the ragi flour for 5 minutes. Take care that it does not burn.
  2. Then add powdered sugar, melted butter, cardamom powder ,baking powder and mix well to a dough.
  3. (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)
  4. Make small balls from the dough. Flatten a little. Place them on a baking paper on a cookie tray.
  5. Bake them at 180c in a preheated oven for 20 minutes.
  6. Cool them and store in a air tight container.

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

  2. 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..
