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.

Notes

You can use organic powdered jaggery directly without melting. Since I used normal one, I melted and filtered to remove impurities

Baking time will differ depending on oven as well as thickness of cookies. So always keep an eye after 15 minutes

Cookies always looks soft while taking out and later becomes firm

If the mixture is too dry add few tablespoon of water to make the dough. If it is too sticky can add one tbsp of flour extra while making dough.
