Masala Biscuits


This is a spicy cookie that is common in bakeries in India. My mom used to bake this when we were small. This is an easy recipe to put together, taking only a few minutes to make. And one of the added attractions is that it is egg-less. You may increase or decrease the spice level for these cookies to your taste.

Ingredients:
All purpose flour-300 gms
Shortening-150gms
Sugar-20 gms
Salt-10gms
Baking powder-1 1/2tsp
Green chillies ---}
Curry leaves----              
Ginger ---------}
Cilantro -------} 20 gm , altogether
Yogurt-2 to 3 tsp
Sesame-2tsp

Method:
Sieve the all purpose flour twice with baking powder and salt. Rub this mixture with shortening and sugar. Add the green chilli and herb mixture to this along with the yogurt and sesame. Knead it to a soft dough. Roll the dough into 1/2 inch thickness and cut with cookie cutter. Bake at 350 degrees F for 20-25 mts.
