Today we will learn how to make ragi biscuits following this easy recipe with step wise pictures.
Grease a cookie tray with butter and keep it ready.
Pre heat the oven to 180 degree C for 15 minutes.
Roast ragi flour on low flame until you get a nice smell of roasted ragi. Leave it to cool.
Sieve together ragi flour, wheat flour and baking powder.
Now all our ingredients are kept ready. Cut butter into small pieces and add to the sieved ragi + wheat flour.
Mix well with your fingers until the mixture become crumbled as shown in the picture below.
Add powdered sugar or jaggery or brown sugar and mix it well.
Add needed milk little at a time and make a smooth dough. Refrigerate the dough for 15-20 minutes.
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.
