Finger Millet or Ragi Cookies – A Crispy Healthy Treat

An acquired taste to many, Sanjeeta Kk has a way of making this plant taste delicious.
By Sanjeeta Kk

Finger millet or Ragi is a food ingredient which require an acquired taste, as it is not very appeasing to the palate. The somewhat saw dust taste put off many to even try this most nutritious wholegrain in their cooking. But believe me Finger millet cookies, puttu, cakes and muffins with a pinch of spice and extra flavors will go a long way in making Ragi an appetizing grain.

  • Hi Sangeeta,
    I recently made a cookies with betty crocker ginger cookie mix, instead of adding butter, I added olive oil & they turned out so good & healthy !
    I also added ragi flour & some quick oats to get that nutty flavor.
    After seeing your recipe, I am going to make only ragi + oats cookies with olive oil, adding rest all the ingredients which you have mentioned here.

    Hope they turn out well :)
