Ragi Cookies with Cashews

Ragi Cookies ! Yes,Thanks to my gym friends who are constantly after my life for healthy bakes . Every morning when we meet they want to know my menu of the previous day and if I made something new . Now it’s not possible to cook a new dish every day, right ?  but their expectations are very high .

I have no recipes of Ragi on my blog and this being a healthy flour my friends asked me to try some cookies , so they get a tried and tested recipe and of course some cookies to eat . The day I carry some kind of cookies or cake to the gym , they make sure that maximum people taste it . I obviously go all red blue green with their compliments , and simply thank them .

Coming back to these Ragi cookies , they were loved by everyone and the cashews took these cookies to another level . I have one more version of these cookies which I shall be posting later . Make sure you roast the flour on slow fire till the raw smell disappears . After the dough is done and if you feel it’s on the soft side then place it in the frig for 10-15 minutes . Do not forget to cover the bowl with a cling film. If you do not want to cut them in shapes you could always make round balls and flatten them gently .
These cookies have a lovely crunch and trust me you are sure to love them .
