Measuring cups & spoons
¾cupRagi flour(Finger Millet flour)
6tbspOlive oil(¼ + ⅛ cup)
1flax-egg(1 tbsp ground flaxseed mixed in 3 tbsp water and left aside for 15-20 mins); optional
a little warm water to knead the doughif and as required
Preheat oven to 350ºF/ 180ºC/ Gas Mark 4 and like a baking tray with parchment paper.
In a large mixing bowl, sieve together wheat and ragi flour so that there are no lumps.
Add baking powder, jaggery powder, flax egg and mix them all together using your fingers.
Add oil and bring the mixture together in a dough. Add water if required. I had to add just about 2 tbsp of water.
Divide the dough into 12 balls. Place on the prepared baking tray.
Press down each ball with the back of a measuring cup to flatten and if you want press in a design too! I simply made crosses with a fork.
Bake for 12-15 minutes. Remove from oven when the edges start to brown.
Keep on the tray for another 5 minutes and then remove on a rack to cool.
Enjoy with tea!
