About Gluten free Amaranth Almond Pistachio Cookies/Fasting Cookies Recipe

We fast for 9 days during Navratri and eat only Satvik Food during these days. Satvik Food consists of no grains so only few things like Buckwheat (Kuttu), Amaranth (Rajgira), Barnyard Millet (Samak) Water Chestnut (Singhada) and Tapioca (Sabudana) are allowed. I made sweet cookies with Amaranth flour with almond and pistachios. To my delight they came out very tasty and crunchy
