Jowar / Sorghum / White Cholam Flour - Peanut Cookies

     I have been trying different varieties of biscuits which are tasty and also healthy.  In this recipe, I have tried Jowar millet and Peanut both of which are good for health. Both are also very soft as well. Another good aspect of this cookies is that it is totally gluten free.
     The Biscuits came out well and was liked by my family.
