DIY whole wheat 🌾 n jaggery crispy veg cookies 🍪 

Whole wheat 🌾 flour  is rich in dietary fiber and manganese, and magnesium.

All-purpose flour / maida is wheat that has been processed into 60% extraction i.e 40% of the original wheat grain is removed, and only 60% is left. Unfortunately, the 40% that gets removed includes the bran and the germ of the wheat grain—it’s most nutrient-rich parts! Over half of the vitamin B1, B2, B3, E, folic acid, calcium, phosphorus, zinc, copper, iron, and fiber are lost!

In addition to that they are further bleached using harmful chemicals that are hazardous to health. Check this n this articles to find out more details…
