Navratri Special Cookies (Singada-Rajgira cookies)

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)


  1. In a mixing bowl, combine the singada flour, Rajgira flour, jaggery or sugar, ghee or butter, cardamom powder and chopped nuts.
  2. Mix well until a dough forms. If the dough is too dry, add a little milk or water.
  3. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  4. Grease a baking tray or line with parchment paper.
  5. Roll the dough into small balls and flatten them slightly with your fingers.
