Few important steps to be followed in millet brookies recipe

Time and temperature settings depend on individual ovens.

Frying or dry roasting removes the raw smell from millet flour.

The dough seems to be sticky, but not to worry, use a spatula to mix the dough.

Plain flour or maida brookies are baked only for 10 minutes. Here in case of millets, I have baked for longer than 10 minutes as I felt the taste was raw and uncooked for 10 minutes baking time. Do not bake for more than 15 minutes, it will dry the brookies.

The quantity of jaggery can be variable based on individual taste.

Step wise recipe is given below

These are really simple to make, just follow the instructions and bake to relish these delicious brookies.

Dry fry mixed millet flour for a minute on low heat or until the raw smell vanishes. Cool this flour.

Sieve together millet flour, baking soda, salt and cocoa powder. Keep this aside. Dry ingredients are ready.

Take a bowl, add soft butter, jaggery powder and blend or cream it together on medium speed using a hand blender. Add vanilla essence and gently mix.

Now add the sieved flour, choco chips, and mix everything. The dough will be very sticky. Close with a cling wrap and refrigerate for 15 minutes. This helps to form the brookies easily.

Preheat the oven at 180℃ for 10 minutes. The temperature and time depends on individual oven.

Smear the palm with little oil, make thick brookies and keep them on parchment paper lined baking tray. Bake the brookies for 12 to 15 minutes at 170℃. After baking, the brookies are ready to be taken out from oven.

Do not remove them from tray immediately, as they will be very soft. After 5 minutes, take out from tray and cool them on rack completely. They will be soft and chewy cookies.
