We started the second group of the Blogging Marathon. I planned to make Crunchy Snacks for Kids, with the hope of sending it for this month's edition of Kid's Delight, guest hosted by Gayathri. I am not sure if not for the BM I might get myself do it. I made these Jeera Biscuits, inspired by Deepika. I read her post the day she posted and had ever since planned to make it. The recipe is so simple (Read more...) uses whole wheat flour. I was so impressed with the whole thing. Yet it took me many days to finally get doing it.
I had made these in the morning, wanted to take these to the Blogger's meet we had. Priya Suresh came down and some of the Chennai food bloggers met. We had great time eating all the homemade food. But unfortunately I didn't take these as they were just getting settled and I had taken the final picture.
Step by Step pictures to make Cumin Biscuits at home
Before baking at 180 C
Wheat flour - 1 cup
Demerara sugar - 1/2 cup
Baking powder - 1/2 tsp
Butter - 4 tbsp
Salt a pinch
Milk 2-4Tbsp ( I didn't use this at all)
Jeera / cumin - 1 tsp
How to make Jeera Biscuits
In a bowl, shift the flour with baking powder. Then mix in the sugar. Mix well.
Melt the butter in microwave for 30 secs.
Then slowly add the butter to the flour and knead to a dough. Depending on how it forms a ball, add milk. Mine was fine without adding any milk. Pinch out small balls, press into small discs. Press the jeera on the top.
Pre heat the oven at 170 degree C. Then bake at 170 degree C for 15 mins.
Allow it to cool.
Notes: As far as I know brown sugar and Demerara is the same. The granules didn't get melted, so it gave a good munch when you bite into the biscuits. The other recipes I checked were savory with the jeera added to the dough. So will surely do that next time.
Sending these to Kid's Delight, guest hosted by Gayathri themed on Crunchy Snacks for Kids.
