It's a perfectly good word.
"It had not been our way to build great fires; we were, indeed, by the captain's orders, somewhat niggardly of firewood, and I began to fear that something had gone wrong while I was absent."
Treasure Island by Stevenson, Robert Louis
"The evening was lovely, and our three friends enjoyed it in the cool shade of the mimosas, after a substantial repast, at which the tea and the punch were dealt out with no niggardly hand".
Five Weeks in a Balloon by Verne, Jules
