Ingredients

  • 1 cup Sorghum Flour / Jowar Flour
  • 1/2 cup Unsalted Butter softened
  • 2 tbsp Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
  • 1/2 cup Sugar
  • 1/2 cup Peanuts
  • 2-3 tbsp Milk or as needed
  • A pinch of Salt

Instructions

  • To toast the peanuts, preheat the oven to 180 degrees C. Spread the peanuts on a baking tray and bake them for 8 – 9 minutes.
  • Remove from the oven and allow them to cool. Rub the peanuts between your palms to remove the skins. Grind the nuts coarsely and set aside.
  • Grind the sugar into a fine powder and set aside.
  • Preheat the oven to 180 degrees C.
  • Sieve / mix the flour, cocoa powder and salt together and set aside.
  • In a bowl, combine the softened butter and powdered sugar and beat it until light and fluffy.
  • Add the mixed flour to the butter mixture and mix everything. Then sprinkle the milk little by little over it and mix it well to make a dough. The dough should be very soft.
  • Divide the dough into 20 – 22 equal sized balls and press each ball between your palms.
  • Place them on a baking tray spacing
  • about 1 inch apart.
  • Bake the cookies in the preheated oven for 15 – 18 minutes at 180 degrees C.
  • Then remove them from the oven and let them cool down for 2-3 minutes before taking them off the baking tray. They will be soft when taken out but will firm up once they cool.
  • Place them on a wire rack to cool. Store in an airtight container.

Notes

You can use any nuts instead of peanuts.
