Maida Biscuit Recipe

Hi Supermoms,

Diwali is just a couple of days away and I know that so many of you are busy decorating your home and also making delicious sweets and snacks. Deepavali or Diwali has such a beautiful tradition of bringing our families together and making it memorable with loads of sharing and caring. 

Making sweets and savouries at home for family and friends is an important Diwali  tradition . I have been sharing quick, easy and delicious recipes for you all to try and today I am sharing yet another easy recipe. 

We call this 'Maida Biscuit' as it is made using the all purpose flour. It is my Mother In Law's signature bakshanam and I am so happy that she made it for us this year. You can make both sweet and spicy versions of this recipe. 

Maida Biscuit Recipe:

Preparation time : 5 minutes
Cooking time : 20 minutes
Storage : Keeps good for 7 days when stored in a clean, dry, odour free air tight container 
Special vessel/equipment : Iron kadai/wok/pan 
1 cup = 250 ml cup 

Ingredients : 

1 cup all purpose flour/maida
1 teaspoon cumin seeds/jeera
1 teaspoon Kashmiri chilli powder ( adjust quantity according to taste)
1/4 teaspoon asafoetida/hing
4 teaspoon clarified butter/ghee OR oil 
water ( adjust)
salt to taste ( I used 1/2 teaspoon)
oil to fry 

Method :

1. In a wide bowl, add all the dry ingredients and mix well.

2. Add ghee and mix well.
3. Now add water little by little and make a soft yet firm dough.
4. Pinch a small portion of the dough , dust the working space with flour and roll out the dough into a thin circle using a rolling pin ( just the way you roll out flat breads/roti).

5. Cut the circle into desired shapes .

6. Heat oil in a pan.
7. Just drop a small piece to check if the temperature is right for frying.
Chef tip : The biscuit has to instantly sizzle and rise up to the surface of the oil.
8. Fry the biscuit in batches.

Chef tip : Fry them over low flame. When the biscuits are fried in the right temperature, they do not absorb much oil.
9. Repeat the same for the entire batch.

Your crunchy and tasty Maida biscuits are ready !
