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.
