Masala Biscuits

It was always a dream to bake Masala biscuits at home….. But I always was hesitant even if my taste will near to the ones like City Bakery. Now u may wonder whats City Bakery…. It’s one of the famous bakery were we get the best cashew macrons, masala biscuits and The best Benne Butter (if I got to translate this it will be Butter Butter: P). Macrons ver the one vchi cud no can eat at any time….. nd these r the best ones  have tasted. Butter is like a kick to the morning tea…… I remember my school days where I used to eat countless butters with my tea…..:D nd Amma telling have limits to eat tht u even got to eat ur brkfst…………..
Ok now to these masala biscuits…….. I could never get the City Bakery taste but yeh they ver tasty without ne doubt. I remember speaking to Divya about this biscuits the day i was preparing it.... and she too wa with the same opinion tht she loves them :). 
 I adopted the masala biscuit recipe from here you can replace curds with milk and did not add mint leaves and even added turmeric powder to gain a bit of yellow color.


  • Maida - 1 cup
  • Sugar powder/powdered sugar - 2 tsp 
  • Salt to taste
  • Turmeric powder-  2 pinches
  • Butter - 1 stick/ 100gms
  • Baking powder 3/4 tsp
  • 4 green chillies chopped finely
  • Curry leaves chopped
  • 2” Ginger grated
  • 1/2 Tbsp cilantro chopped fine
  • Milk 3tbsp
Mix flour, baking powder,  powdered sugar and salt in a mixing bowl. Add butter and mix till evrything mixes well. Do not knead, just shorten the mixture (until you get a bread crumb consistency).
Mix the chopped chillies, curry leaves, ginger, cilantro. Add milk and mix. Roll the dough and cut to desired shapes.
Place on a greased baking sheet 2" apart Bake at 180 degree C for 15-20 minutes or till done. After they cool down, store in an air-tight container. Photobucket


The baking time totally depends on your oven.. It took 15 minutes in mine you can increase the time according to your oven :)
