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!
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
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!
