Whole Grain Ragi Cookies With Almonds (Nachini Cookies)


ragi cookies
Baking with whole grains is easy.

Whether you are looking for ragi cookies or nachini cookies, you will find it all here.

After a successful attempt at baking badam atta cookies, I have given ragi (finger millet) a try. Here I have come up with ragi badaam (almond) cookies.

An extremely nutritious grain, ragi is rich in proteins & minerals. The antioxidant-rich finger millet flour helps boost body vigor and keeps you young :)



You may replace sugar and make ragi cookies with jaggery. This ragi cookie without butter recipe is surely going to please your body, mind, and soul, for the health benefits of nachini or ragi are explicit and the ragi biscuits taste yummy.

The distinct flavor of ragi is certainly going to be addictive. I am already addicted to ragi, for its color, scent, and taste reminds of the quintessential muddy smell of the earth.




Ingredients

1/2 cup- wheat flour
1/2 cup- ragi flour (you may dry roast it)
1/4 cup - suji (semolina)
2 tbsp- ghee (clarified butter)
3 tbsp - olive oil/vegetable oil

1 cup- almond meal/flour (ground almond powder)
cardamom, nutmeg powder, cinnamon or any spice of your choice
