Cumin cookies

I had bookmarked this recipe a while ago from Sunita's blog..Being a sweet tooth I have always made sweet cookies.First time venturing into savoury cookies,this was too delicious..I did not get the exact round shape as Sunita's..They were perfect with hot chai..The aroma of roasted cumin filled our house..I made almost two dozens and they all got over in no time..

Ingredients (makes 2 dozens)

All Purpose Flour - 1 cup
Cumin seeds - 1 tablespoon
Baking soda - 1/2 tespoon
Salt - 1 teaspoon
Sugar - 1/2 teaspoon
Oil - 3 tablespoons
Milk - 1/4 cup


Preheat oven to 350 degree F.

In a large bowl, combine together the flour, baking soda,sugar,salt and cumin seeds..Mix well.

Add the oil and milk and knead the flour.Do not over knead the flour as it might result in hard cookies..

Roll out the dough using a rolling pin to about 2 mm thick..Using a cookie cutter cut into desired shapes and carefully transfer them to a lined baking sheet.

Bake them in a preheated oven for 20 to 25 mnutes unitl the top of the cookies start browning slightly.Take care because they burn quickly.

Transfer the cookies to a wire rack.

Store in airtight containers.

Am sending this to Sunita's Think Spice: Think Favorite..I have used cumin..

Sending this to Sunday Snacks - Bake It

And also to Bookmarked Recipes hosted by Ruth.
