Masala Biscuits/cookies

You will need

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour(Maida), plus more for rolling
  • 3 tsp sugar
  • 1 ½ tsp garam masala
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • ¾ tsp salt
  • 6 tbsp cold unsalted butter, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  • ¾ cup buttermilk, plus more for brushing

Step 1:

Preheat the oven
We need to set the oven 375°F before beginning to make the cookies.

Step 2:

Slice the butter

Using a knife, cut in the butter until it is the size of small peas.

Step 3:

Preparing dough

In a medium bowl, whisk 2 cups of flour with the sugar, garam masala, baking powder and salt. Combine the ‚butter into the flour mixture. Then add buttermilk and stir until it turns into a dough.

Step 4:


Roll the dough on a floured surface until it is about half a cm thick. Select a pastry cutter, and starting at the edge of the dough, cut out the biscuits. Have some fun with the variety of shapes you can make. Place the biscuits straight onto the baking tray.Brush the tops with buttermilk.

Step 5:

Place the baking tray into the oven and cook until golden brown. This should take around 16 minutes, but watch carefully to make sure they don't burn.

Step 6:

Cool and serve

Take the tray out of the oven and leave it to cool. Then transfer them to a wire rack to become nice and crisp. Serve with a cup of coffee or tea. Enjoy!!!!
