Black Wheat is being touted as the next healthy grain . Couldn't resist experimenting with it.
The other day I made rotis(Indian flat bread) with it. It was very easy to roll them . The rotis turned out soft and tasty.
Today I tried my hand at cookies using Black Wheat Flour.
These have crispy edges and slightly soft centre. Just the way we like our cookies. You need to bake them a little longer if you want them crispier.
