How to make the Best Ragi Chocolate Chip Cookie
These cookies are different from normal high gluten cookies- They need to be treated differently.
Step 1: Combine the flours and baking powder
Step 2: Rub cold cubed butter into it.It will turn into a coarse meal.
Step 3: Add milk little by little and get the dough toghether.Add the chocolate chips etc.
Step 4: Refrigerate your dough.
Step 5: Make small balls, flatten with your finger and bake in a preheated oven till it holds shape.
Tips to make Ragi Chocolate Cookie
First– do refrigerate the cookie dough for at-least 30 minutes in the fridge.
Second– They do not spread as much, but rise quite a bit.So its important to shape the cookies accordingly.Make these cookies small and flat.Do not scoop them using a scooper like a traditional cookie but make small balls and flatten them on the baking sheet.
Flavours of this Ragi Cookie
This recipe can be used as a basic Ragi cookie Recipe.You can add nuts(powdered nuts when giving to babies or toddlers), raisins or some spices- like cinnamon and Fennel.
I also have a Double Chocolate Chip Ragi Cookie on the blog.They are a tad bit more decadent cause of a double dose of chocolate but as healthy as these Ragi Cookies.
