Millets are a very good alternative to normal All-purpose flour or whole wheat flour in gluten free baking. You can’t even recognize the core ingredient. It is gluten free as well as high in nutrition too.
When I was trying out some recipes for 2017 Millet calendar, I dished out a couple of recipes, which has turned out super tasty, and at the same time, healthy too.
At first, I tried Chocolate based cookie and it tasted good and here is the recipe-.
Mixed millet flour -1 cup
Ragi flour – ¾ cup
Cocoa powder – 2 tbl sp.
Salt – ¼ tsp
Baking powder – ¾ tsp
Baking soda – ¾ tsp
Sugar – ¾ cup
Butter – 100 gms
Curd – 2 tbl sp
Vanilla essence – 1 tsp
Choco-chip – 2 tbl sp
Powdered sugar – to roll the dough.
-Put all the dry ingredients- flours, cocoa powder, salt, baking powder and soda, Choco chip in one bowl, mix nicely and keep aside.
– Take another bowl and put butter and sugar, beat until sugar dissolves and butter becomes smooth.
-Add in egg and beat, add vanilla essence, curd and beat until batter is smooth.
– Now add dry ingredient flour mixture and make cookie dough by mixing like Chapati dough.
– Take one round spoon and make uniformly sized ball, dip in a sugar powder and arrange in a lined baking tray.
– Bake this in a pre- heated oven at 170º C for 12 to 14 minutes or until base becomes light brown.
-When it is done, remove and cool. Store this in an air tight container.
Note: This measurement yields around 28 cookies of this size.
