Recipe For Masala Biscuit


  • All purpose flour (Maida) - 2 cups
  • Butter/Ghee - 3/4 cup (at room temp.)
  • Chilly powder - 1 tsp
  • Ginger - 1" piece (minced)
  • Cumin seeds - 1 tsp
  • Green/Dry red Chillies - 1 or 2 (minced)
  • Curry leaves - 2 strands (minced)
  • Baking Soda - 1/2 tsp
  • Asaefoetida - a pinch
  • Salt - 1/2 tsp ( or to taste)
  • Sugar - 2 tsp


  1. Mix all the above ingredients together in a bowl to get a nice dough like chapatti dough.
  2. If the dough is not moist enough add 2-3 tbsp of curd.
  3. Grease an aluminum foil and roll out the dough into a big circle 1 "thick.
  4. Using a cookie cutter or any bottle lid, cut out into desired cookie shapes.
  5. Place the cut out cookies on a greased baking dish and bake it for 15 - 20 minutes in an oven preheated to 325 degrees F.
  6. Cool and store in air tight containers and enjoy for many days.


  • If you do not have a cookie cutter, make small balls out of the dough and flatten it with hand like a cutlet.
  • You could also make some designs on the biscuits with a knife before baking.

I followed all the above instructions but somehow I feel the cookies are a bit uncooked in the inside. It wasn't very thick but still. What is the maximum time for which cookies can be baked?

Hi Manoj, Sorry to hear that the cookies were uncooked. Next time, may be you can leave it a little longer in the oven (additional 5 or 10 minutes). Just remove them when you see the edges getting brown. Another option is to cook it at a slightly higher temperature (may be 350 degree). All ovens are different, so the cooking time varies slightly. I hope it turns out good next time. All the best!!
