Khara Biscuit / Indian Masala Cookies

Happy New Year to everyone. I am here after the holidays and after a short break. Hope all had a great Christmas and New Year vacation.

I baked these savoury cookies during the holidays after having loads of sweets and cakes. This is an Indianized version with all the masalas. The recipe could be easily tweaked and modified to suit ones tastes. I wanted to make something along with tea and was in no mood of elaborate cooking. I had very little time and I baked these delicious cookies in about half an hour from start to finish!
Ingredients
All-Purpose Flour / Maida - 1 cup
Baking soda - 1 teaspoon
Salt - 1 teaspoon
Sugar - 1 teaspoon
Butter - 4 tablespoons
Egg - 1
Garam masala -1 teaspoon
Cumin powder - 1/2 teaspoon
Coriander powder - 1/2 teaspoon
Chilli powder - 1 teaspoon
Fresh coriander leaves - 1 tablespoon chopped

Directions

Preheat oven to 400F.

In a mixing bowl add all the ingredients except coriander leaves and egg and mix together. Add in the egg and coriander leaves and sprinkle very little water and knead to form a soft cookie dough.

Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Shape the dough into small balls and flatten them slightly. Bake for about 13 to 15 minutes.

Cool the cookies in a wire rack and store in airtight containers.
Serve with tea!

  23. Hi Divya,
    another good recipe.
    If you are still looking for ideas to do a recipe collection, you should consider ways to cook lentils.There are so many variety of lentils and every part of the world has its own way to cook and eat them.You will have a big collection of recipes.The reason I am suggesting a collection of lentil recipes is because I have one posted on my blog.Please visit!
