Masala biscuit

Again: After many trials looking into different websites, below recipe is the one that worked for me.


  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup butter
  • 2 tablespoons yogurt 
  • 1 tsp chilli powder 
  • 1 teaspoon grated ginger
  • 3 teaspoons sugar 

  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons cumin seeds
  • 4 small  green chillies, finely chopped 
  • Curry leaves, finely chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon asafoetida

What to do:

  • In a bowl combine all the ingredients together. Knead to make firm dough for about three minutes
  • Leave the dough aside (covered) for 10 minutes
  • Preheat the oven to 180 C
  • Make small balls from the dough. Take one and press it between your palms. Do not press it too thin
  • Poke it with fork
  • Apply oil on the dough before baking it. ( helps to turn golden brown)
  • Place it on the baking tray. Keep it in the oven and bake for about 16 mins or until the edges begin to start during golden brown
  • Prick in between and see that it is indeed baked. DO NOT over bake
  • Remove from the oven and allow it to cool.
