I wanted to make biscuits using millets. I used to try different cookies in UK. After coming to Chennai I am bit lazy to make as my oven is small and I need to bake in 3 to 4 batches for one cup of flour. Finally made these cookies and they were tasty and crunchy. I have used jaggery as sweetener for these cookies. I used my homemade Bajra flour which was little coarse to make these cookies. You can use fine flour to make these biscuits.
