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.
I was so glad that the Peddu and Konda loved eating these and that I have one more added snack for their school snack box.
Also to Harini who is guest hosting Pari's 'Only Baked'.
