Ragi Cookies Recipe with step by step pictures. Healthy cookies made with ragi flour (finger millet flour) which is eggless too.
When we kids my grandma used to make ragi porridge several days in a week for breakfast. As a kid I hate ragi, somehow I don't like the colour as well as the texture of that porridge. My aunt used to make ragi dosa for my uncle who is a diabetic patient. I love that dosa, it is not the instant kind which I posted in this blog, She makes the dosa by grinding urad dal and fermenting it. It stays so soft and the flavour was so good.
About Ragi Cookies Recipe
I love cooking with ragi because I know it is so good for me and contains lots of vitamins in it. Ever since I started using ragi in my cooking, I always make dosa, adai or something like that. But lately I discovered that ragi can be used in baking too, since I came across a cookies which I ate in one of my nearest bakery.
So when I searched online I found this awesome recipe and immediately gave a try and the result was mind blowing. It didn't taste like ragi which you must have had before..It was rich chocolaty and purely yummy. The cool thing in this recipe is, it is EGGLESS. So any one can enjoy it.
Ragi, a millet that resembles mustard seeds in appearance, is incredibly nutrient-dense. It is easily ground into flour, which can then be used to make many Indian dishes like ragi idli, ragi roti, and ragi sheera. Ragi is full of fibre, low in gluten, and high in protein.
Ragi works as a great source of fiber when it comes to people trying for weight loss. It helps in controlling Diabetes in the body while ensuring that the person is healthy and strong. Not only this, Ragi prevents obesity, provides energy, improves digestion and averts chronic diseases.
Ingredients for Eggless Ragi Cookies Recipe
Ragi Flour / Finger Millet Flour:
Ragi, also known as finger millet, is a nutritious cereal crop. However, despite being aware of its nutritional benefits, some people are unable to consume it on a regular basis due to its bitter taste.
When paired with all-purpose flour, cornstarch helps prevent gluten development, which makes the flour coating crispier, and absorb moisture (from the frying and the chicken), which also means a crispier coating.
Cocoa Powder :
Cocoa powder is primarily used as a flavouring agent in baked goods such as cookies, ice cream, dairy drinks, and cakes. Aside from flavouring, it is also used in the production of coatings for confectioners or frozen desserts. Cocoa powder is also used in the beverage industry, for example, to make chocolate milk.
