Ragi(Kelvaragu) Cookies/Finger millet Almond Cookies

Coming to second day of blogging marathon#34,made ragi cookies for the snack box from Cook like Priya blog.She made the cookies only with ragi/fingermillet flour,I added1/4 cup of whole wheat flour and used confectioney sugar.The cookies came out crispy and crunchy,my lil one also enjoyed the cookies a lot.With no further delay lets move to the recipe...........

Basic Information

PreparationTime ~ 15 minutes
Baking Time ~  15 minutes
Makes ~ 15 cookies


Finger millet flour/kelvaragu maavu3/4 cup
Wheat flour/gothumai maavu1/4 cup
Confectionery  Sugar1/2cup
Powdered almonds1/2cup
Melted butter/vennai1/2 cup+1tbs
Baking Powder1/2tsp
Baking sodaa pinch
Nuts for toppingas needed
Vanilla essencefew drops


Dry roast the ragi/finger millet flour in a medium flame for 2 minutes without changing the color.In a mixing bowl add the all dry ingredients and mix it well.To this add the melted butter and vanilla essence.Mix it well with a spatula and make a dough.

Take a tbs of prepared dough and smooth in to a ball and flatten it,press the nut on top it and arrange it on a baking tray.Bake it in 375 F pre-heated oven for 10 - 15 minutes(mine took 13 minutes).

Cool it on a wire rack and store it in an air tight container.


  • For the almond powder,I coarsely blend the silvered almonds in a blender.If you want you can use the store bought almond powder.
  • Don't melt the butter in the flame for a long time,it should not become ghee.
  • Instead of vanilla,cardamon powder can also be used.
  • Initially the dough may be crumbly while mixing, it will be like a dough its kneaded.If its too dry then add couple of tsp of milk and mix it well.
