how to prepare ragi cookies/biscuits

  • Dust wheat flour and roll out the dough. The rolled out dough should not be too thin nor too thick.
  • Using a lid or cookie cutter, cut desired shapes. I have used a round bottle cap. Press it with a fork as shown in the picture below to give it a striped pattern. Alternatively, you can make small balls out of the dough, press it between your palms to give a round flat shape (just like cookies) and make striped design with a fork and then bake.
  • Place the biscuits on a greased tray and bake at 180 degree C for 15-20 minutes or until the biscuits start browning slightly. Remove and cool on a wire rack. Once it cools it will become crisp. Store it in an airtight container.
  • Variations -For cardamom flavor, add 1/4 tsp cardamom powder instead of vanilla essence.
  • For cinnamon flavor, add 1/4 tsp of cinnamon powder instead of vanilla essence.
