Ragi( Finger Millet) Biscuit/Cookie. Also have reposted few entries to events.
Being a Bangalorean have had this ragi biscuit many times. They used to just melt in the mouth. I have tried making them today at home just like making any other cookie and unstead have used ragi flour.
Ragi ( Finger Millet ) Flour - 1 cup
All purpose flour( Maida) - 1/2 cup
Butter( Melted) - 1 cup
Sugar - 3/4 cup
Baking soda - 1/4 tsp
Baking powder - 3/4 tsp
Cardamom powder - a pinch
Oil or butter for spraying
I roasted the ragi flour in microwave for just 2 minutes. Later take both flours, to it add baking soda, baking powder, sugar and cardamom powder and mix well. Slowly add melted butter( do not add all at once, add slowly just enough to mix) and mix to get a pliable dough. Grease a aluminium foil with oil or butter and take a small lime size of mixture and place them on the foil. There is no need to press and flatten. I did and a got a very flat biscuits. So there is no need. Just make a round sized ball and just give a small pressure on top. That is fine. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and place to cook for 20 minutes.
Remove and cool. Initially will be very soft, so handle gently and then will turn little crisp. Yields around 30 biscuits/cookies.

Chilli gobi - For a change instead of preparing Gobi Manchurian or stir fry(Poriyal)which everyone loved a lot, tried chilli gobi with store bought powder. It suggested that it can also be made for chilli gobi, chilli potato, chilli baby corn just like using it for chilli chicken. Mixed as per the instruction. But it did not coat well and also the smell was horrible. Then the remaining pieces mixed few drops of water and then tried to cook in the oven for few mts and then under broil. Even then it did not work out good. You can make out with the picture itself :D. I tried to make some adjustment like sauting some onions and capsicum and then added the gobi florets.
