Iyengar Style Khara Biscuit - Indian Cooking Challenge

Hello Friends,


I am positing for Indian Cokoing Challenge after a long time. I am really sad that I missed the old ones due to some reason or the other. But, I am so glad that I tried this one. Loved the results and so without further ado, here is the recipe and source.


This month, Srivalli, picked a delicious and very Indian snack from Champs'a blog called Iyengar Style Khara Biscuit. Please visit her blog for more details and the beautiful pictures.


Iyengar Style Khara Biscuit
Ingredients
Maida (All Purpose Flour) - 2 cups
Butter - 1/3 cup, melted
Sugar - 4 tsp
Salt - 2 tsp
Green Chilies - 1tbsp, ground, or per your taste
Cilantro - 3 tbsp, finely chopped
Yogurt - 3-4 tbsps
Prepartion
  • Preheat oven to 350 degree F.
  • Whisk dry ingredients together.
  • Now, cream butter and sugar till creamy and slowly add dry ingredients to it along with yogurt. Initially only add 3 tbsp and then if needed you can add more. We want the dough to be crumbly and not soft.
  • Once it is all mixed together, take it out of the mixer and mix green chilies and cilantro with hand and make it into a ball shape. Add more yogurt if needed.
  • Divide the dough in 2 and roll the one part in 1/4" thickness.
  • Cut the rolled dough in desired shape till all the dough is rolled and cut.
  • Now, take a baking sheet, spread a parchment paper and place the cut biscuits little far apart.
  • Bake them in oven for 25-30 min. or till you see a nice gold color (I removed them way too early and could have baked little more).
Serving
You can serve them warm right out of oven or store in airtight container. Eat them anytime or serve them traditionally with evening tea or coffee.


That's all for now. Take care till next post.
