Ragi Cookies / Finger Millet Cookies Recipe / Millet Cookies
Ragi cookies are healthy. Ragi is rich in calcium when compared to rice and wheat. This cookie is also rich in iron, because we use jaggery instead of sugar.  The colour is not appealing but the taste is good. It will be good for 10 days if we store it in the air tight containers.
