- Vanilla essence or cardamom powder-1/4 tsp
- Milk-<50 ml(Optional)
1.Get all the ingredients ready and pre heat oven for 180 degrees for 10 minutes.
2.Dry roast the ragi flour in medium flame until aroma arises.
3.Cool the roasted flour.
4.In a mixing bowl,add the ragi flour ,palm jaggery(powdered and sieved),butter,cashews and vanilla essence.
5.Mix them well to form a dough in the consistency shown in below pic.You can add few drops of milk if you are not attaining the required consistency.
6.Grease a tray with butter and set it aside.
7.Take small portions of the dough and flatten on your palms to cookie shape and flatten it using a roller pin and cut using cookie moulds.

If you don’t get the dough consistency use milk.
This stays good for 5 days if milk in not added.
