Matzo (Matza) Bread

Yesterday being Passover, I baked the Matzo(or Matza) bread - the unleavened bread specialty for the Jewish festival. At our home we try to celebrate the festivals of all religions, at least in cooking.
Serves 8
All purpose flour (maida) - 2 1/4 cup
Butter - 3/4 cup (straight from the freezer)
Egg - 1 no
Milk - 1/2 cup
Onion powder - 1/2 tbs
Salt - 1/2 tbs
Chilli powder - 1/8 tsp (optional)

  1. Slice the butter to thin pieces
  2. Put the butter and the all purpose flour in the food processor and blend it well till it becomes the consistency of bread crumbs
  3. Mix the onion powder, chilli powder and salt into the milk
  4. Beat the egg well and add this to the above
  5. Now add the above liquid mix to the flour-butter mix and make it into a dough
  6. Divide this into two balls and roll it into a 1/4 inch thick slabs using a rolling pin
  7. Cut this into small pieces and transfer to a cookie sheet
  8. Prick the surface of the bread with a fork so that it doesn't rise
  9. Heat the oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit and  bake for 10-12 minutes or till it starts to turn golden.
  10. Cool it
This tastes good as such or you can have this with a dip of your choice.
