Maida is used in mostly all cakes, cookies and brownies. For a change instead of Maida I used multi grain powder to make cookies. It combines the goodness of various grains to give you a healthier and nutritious diet. They are very easy to make and taste delicious. I Made these Multi grain cookies with goodness of butter, and refreshing Cardamom flavour and pistachio on top makes these cookies more flavorful and cookies are light and crispy. They are great with tea or coffee.
Multigrain powder: Take 50 gm of Ragi, bajra, jowar, channa dal, saboodana , maize,whole wheat grains, and barley . Clean and Dry roast the ingredients except oats and till nice aroma comes.
