Jeera (cumin seed) Biscuit

·        Refined flour- 2 cups
·        Cumin seed-2 tsp.
·        Salt-1/2 tsp.
·        Baking powder-1 tsp.
·         Powder sugar-1/4 cup
·        Oil-1/4 cup
·        Butter-1/4 cup
·        Egg (lightly beaten)-1 no.
·        Mix flour, salt and baking powder together. Mix cumin seeds in it also.
·        In an another bowl mix sugar, oil and egg very well. Add flour mixture to the egg mixture and kneed into a soft dough. If needed can mix little bit of milk. For better result try to avoid water to make dough.
·        Leave it for ½ an hour in a tight container.
·        Divide the dough into small equal portions. Roll each portion into a ball and flatten them by pressing them with palm and finally cut each ball by cookies cutter as shape you like.
·        Place this on the baking tray. There is no requirement to grease the tray. But if you like ,you can do it.
·        Preheat the convection oven at 180 degree centigrade.
·        Bake for fifteen to eighteen minutes, or until it becomes light brown.
·        Remove the tray from the oven and let it be cool. Then store it in an air tight container.

Tip: When the down side of the biscuit will become brown, then your cookies is ready….
