Cumin Flavoured Indian cookies

Savoury Cookies

Wishing all you awesome moms out there a very happy Mother’s day 2014. Here’s is a wonderful recipe idea for edible gift that you can make for mom which she can enjoy with a cup of tea or coffee. Indian style Jeera cookies- cumin flavoured cookies. I used whole wheat flour but you can use all purpose flour too. I remember growing up we use to have one set of sweet and one set of salty cookies and often salty cookies part was done by these cumin cookies which we kids use to call Namkeen biscuit.

1 cup whole wheat flour
1/4 tsp Baking Powder
1 Tsp Cumin Seeds
1/2 tsp Salt
1 tsp Sugar
1/4 cup oil
1/4 cup milk + 2 tbsp
1 tbsp ghee/ butter

Mix baking powder, cumin seeds, salt, sugar and oil with the flour and make a crumbly dough. Add Milk gradually to form smooth dough and then smother it with ghee and let stand for 10-15 mins. Preheat oven to 350 F and bake cookies for 20-25 mins until golden brown. These cookies are perfect to enjoy with a cup of chai tea. once they have cool down, pack them in a box and send them to mom as a lovely Mother’s day gift.
Wishing all you wonderful moms out there a very happy Mother’s day 2014.
