1/2 cup multi grain powder (sathu mavu)
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
75 grams butter chilled
1/4 cup sugar
1 tablespoon badam feast (I used MTR) (Optional)
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 cup warm milk
A pinch of salt
1.In a large mixing bowl take multi grain powder,wheat flour,salt,sugar,baking powder and badam feast powder and mix well.Combine very well.
2.To that bowl add the butter cubes and mix using your finger tips.Incorporate the butter cubes to the flour mixture till the mixture resembles bread crumbs.
3.To this mixture add warm milk slowly and bring together to form a dough.Knead the dough for 5-7 minutes.Dough will be very soft and sticky.
5.Prepare a cookie sheet or baking tray by greasing and dusting with flour.Now divide the dough into 20 small sized balls and flatten it slightly.Arrange the cookies in the baking sheet .
4. Preheat oven at 200C for 10 minutes.Bake for about18-20 minutes till slightly browned.These will be chewy when hot but once cooled they become very crunchy.
1.You can change the flavoring as per your taste.Vanilla or cardamom will also be great.
2.You can add a table spoon of cocoa powder for chocolate flavored cookies.
3.If you are baking this for older children you can add chopped roasted nuts to the dough.
4.If you are working in batches keep the dough refrigerated as the butter melts really fast.
5.You can even use multigrain powder avilable in stored for this
