SALTED CUMIN COOKIES/ JEERA BISCUITS
Salted, light and crispy cookies flavored with cumin, made out of a mix of flours.
Whole wheat flour- 1 cup
Refined flour- ½ cup
unsalted- ½ cup (I used home-made)
Sugar- ¼ cup
powdered (can omit, or increase as per your liking)
whole- 2 tbs
Salt- 1+ ¼ tsp
Baking powder- ½ tsp
Baking soda- ½ tsp
Whole milk- 2 to 4 tbs
Dry roast cumin seeds on medium heat until they change their color slightly and turn fragrant.
Sieve together both the flours, salt, baking powder and baking soda. Add cumin seeds and keep aside.
In a mixing bowl add soft butter and sugar and beat it well to a smooth cream like consistency.
Add the flour mixture to it and mix with fingertips to achieve a bread-crumb like consistency.
Add some milk to the mixture and get it all together to form a dough.
Dust flour on rolling surface, and roll out 1 part of the dough to half a cm thickness.
Cut into the shapes of your choice.
Spread a butter paper or parchment paper on the baking sheet and arrange cookies over it .
