Spicy Biscuits

Lot of nostalgic memories (about yummy dishes) coming up recently!! All the flavours and dishes which i used to enjoy in my childhood is bubbling up in my mind and i can still feel the taste of them...

When i was young, my father used to buy a type of spicy biscuit which he bought from bakeries. I always wanted to try out a similar type of biscuit, but always failed to find a good recipe.

Recently, when i came across this recipe, thought to give it a try. It did not taste like the one which i used to enjoy, but of course these biscuits tasted really good. Spicy and crunchy.. and egg less too...

I made them using whole wheat flour and added little maida. Moreover, made them in small sizes, so that kids could enjoy them.

This recipe is super easy... Try it out friends, you will like them....


1 cup Whole wheat flour
1/2 cup Maida/All purpose flour
1/2 cup Butter
1/4 tsp Red chilli powder
1/4 tsp Black pepper powder
1/4 tsp Cumin powder (roasted and powdered)
1/4 tsp Ajwain/Carom seeds
3 Green chilli (finely chopped)
1 tbsp Curry leaves (finely chopped)
1 tbsp Coriander leaves (finely chopped)
1 tsp Rava/Semolina
1 tsp Baking powder
2 tsp Curd3/4 tsp Salt
1 tsp Sugar


  • In a bowl, mix whole wheat flour, maida, red chilli powder, black pepper powder, cumin powder, ajwain, green chilli, curry leaves, coriander leaves, rava, baking powder, salt and sugar.
  • Now add butter and mix well. It will form a crumble dough.
  • Add curd and kneed well to form a stiff dough.
  • Preheat oven in convection mode at 175 degree Celsius.
  • Take small portion of the dough and roll it just like a roti of about 5mm thickness.
  • Cut it using a cookie cutter (any shape) or with a bottle cap.
  • Place them on a baking tray lined with a butter paper.
  • Place the baking tray in the preheated oven for 20 minutes at 175 degree Celsius and again for 10 minutes at 110 degree Celsius.
  • Take off from oven and let it cool down completely.
  • Serve it with tea or coffee.
