Cooking is not a science but an art, mistakes are okay, messes are fine—the pleasure is in the creating and the sharing of the result.
Welcome to my simple blog of everyday cooking log. Cooking is a meditative experience. Come join hands with me in this culinary expedition.
Well it all started here. I was melting the butter for ghee. I have the residue or the sediment left after transferring the ghee. I threw in some foxtail millet flour, Lotus seeds and almonds powder, powdered sugar and pounded cardamom. roast in a medium flame till the flour gives out a nice aroma. This will take roughly about 15-20 mts. Transfer the ingredients to another bowl to cool down. You may either sprinkle warm water or milk to roll out balls. Foxtail millet flour- 1/2 cup Lotus seeds-1/4 cup Almonds-1/4 cup Powdered sugar or castor sugar-1/2 cup cardamom- 2 Sprinkling with milk will reduce the shelf life. Store it in a air tight container and use it within a week if it lasts..
Millet is the mantra for healthier choice of food. This finger millet biscuits are quite addictive and flavorful and most of all kid approved. I have adapted this recipe from here.
Finger millet flour- 1/2 cup Whole wheat flour- 1/2 cup Light Brown sugar- 1/2 cup Baking powder - 1/2 tsp Vanilla Essence- 1/4 tsp Butter-1/2 cup -use cold butter Low fat milk- 2 tbsp to bind
Roast the millet flour till you get the nice aroma. Mix all the ingredients to form a dough. Refrigerate it for 30 mts. Dust the surface with flour, roll out in roti discs and cut in desired shapes and bake it in preheated oven at 350 F for 15 mts.
