Navratri Special Cookies, also known as Singada-Rajgira cookies, are a delicious and healthy variation of traditional cookies that are typically made during the Navratri festival. They are made from a combination of singada flour (water chestnut flour) and Rajgira flour (Amaranth flour) and sweetened with jaggery or sugar.
Here is a simple recipe for Navratri Special Cookies:
- 1 cup singada flour
- 1 cup Rajgira flour
- 1 cup jaggery or sugar
- 1/2 cup ghee or butter
- 1 tsp cardamom powder
- 1/4 cup chopped nuts (almonds, cashews, pistachios)
- In a mixing bowl, combine the singada flour, Rajgira flour, jaggery or sugar, ghee or butter, cardamom powder and chopped nuts.
- Mix well until a dough forms. If the dough is too dry, add a little milk or water.
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
- Grease a baking tray or line with parchment paper.
- Roll the dough into small balls and flatten them slightly with your fingers.
- Place the cookies on the baking tray and bake for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown.
- Remove from the oven and let them cool for a few minutes before serving.
Note: You can also add some more flavorings like vanilla extract, or cinnamon powder for added flavor and nutrition.
Enjoy your Navratri Special Cookies (Singada-Rajgira cookies) with a cup of tea or coffee and have a happy Navratri.
