Eggless Ragi & Chocolate Chips Cinnamon Rolls

Everyone will agree with me if i say nothing can beat the aroma of freshly baked breads at home. I love baking very much, i can even say i talk baking,eat baking,live baking, just like the famous actor Rajini's dialogue. Its really hard for me to keep away from baking and if i feel down immediately i'll go for baking. Obviously the bread kneading or whisking makes me happy and keeps me away from my stress. Cinnamon rolls are one of our family favourite, and i'll try on making this beautiful rolls as healthy version with whole grains, after Whole wheat cinnamon rolls here comes one more interesting rolls with ragi flour.

After many fails, finally i got the prefect measurement myself and fixed it for making these beautiful ragi cinnamon rolls.If am trying anything new in baking, obviously i'll add chocolate chips,so that i can feed easily to my kids. Needless to say that these rolls turned out prefectly and since there were chocolate chips in it, my kids doesnt hesitate a second to enjoy these healthy version of cinnamon rolls. Initially i was bit anxious about this cinnamon rolls with ragi but trust me they are simple awesome, you can enjoy these cuties without any guilt eventhough the colour will be bit dull than the usual one.

1+1/2cup Ragi flour
1cup All purpose flour
2tbsp Melted butter
1tbsp Active dry yeast
1tbsp Sugar
1tsp Salt
1/2cup Luke warm water
2tsp Cinnamon powder
2tbsp Sugar
2tsp Butter (room temperature)
1/2cup Chocolate chips (freezed for half an hour)
3tbsp Confectioner's sugar

In a small bowl, add the active yeast, sugar and salt in luke warm water , give a stir and keep aside, let it sit for 5 minutes until it turns foamy.

Take the all purpose flour,ragi flour and melted butter in an another large bowl..

Gradually add the foamy yeast to the flour and knead as dough.

Dust the dough with enough flour, knead for few minutes until its turns soft.

Arrange the dough in a greased bowl , let it sit for two hours in a warm place..

Once the dough doubled their volume, springle few flour and knead again for few minutes, flatten the dough with a rolling pin.

Brush the butter over the flattened dough and springle the sugar, cinnamon powder,frozen chocolate chips over the dough..

Roll the dough tightly as a loaf...

Slice the dough as 8-9 thick slices.

Arrange those slices over a greased square baking mould..

Cover it with a plastic wrap and let it sit again for an hour until they double their volume.

Preheat the oven to 350F.

Arrange the baking pan in the middle rack and bake the uncooked rolls for 20-25minutes until its turn golden brown.

Let them cool..

Mix the confectioners sugar with few drops of water as thick paste, drizzle over the rolls before serving.
