Butter Biscuits


All Purpose Flour (Maida) –

2,cups Sugar – 3/4th cup,

Cardamom – 4,

Butter/Ghee - 1 ¼ cup,melted

Baking Soda – 1 tsp,

Method :-

Grind the Sugar and Cardamom together. In a large bowl, mix the Flour,Sugar and Baking Soda. Heat the butter/ghee in a kadai till it melts and add it to the flour. Mix all the ingredients together ,press hard with hand as the mixture tends to loosen. Do not add water .If required, melt some more ghee and add it to the mixture. Make a tight dough. Keep it aside for 4-5 hrs. Now, you will find the mixture to be a little hard, don’t panic(I remember panicking for the first time), just press it hard with hands and it should be fine. Make small rounds and flatten it little(not too flat,just press a little on the top).The mixture might loosen out in between. If so, use ghee in hands and apply pressure . Preheat the oven at 300F.Place the balls(space it well) in a greased oven proof dish and bake it for 25-30min.Once done store it in a air tight container.

I have done a lot of experiments with this recipe,but never succeeded, but this time.. I made it.......they are simply delicious and incredibly soft, I fallowed and copied the recipe of my fellow blogger .................Tips from not bake it as soon as the dough was made (ie., without keeping it for 4-5hrs) the taste will be fine but the balls will flatten completely,they will stick with each other and turn brown in color in no time.I suggest, keep checking in between. These taste good when they are hot or warm.
