2 cups Maida

3 Table spoons Natural Butter / Vanaspati

One tea spoon Salt

Half tea spoon Baking Soda

One Tea spoon Sugar


To make:

Take two cups of Maida in a vessel and add three table spoons of natural butter or Vanaspati(Dalda). Do not use pasteurised butter of the shelves or oil. Add the salt and baking soda to this and make a thick dough kneading it with water. Make sure that even though the dough is thick, all the maida has actually been mixed properly. Add sugar only if you want the biscuits to have a tinge of sweetness too.

Pat the dough into a thick round circle about one centimetre thick. Cut out small 4cm diameter circle biscuits out of this using a steel katori or glass. Paint the top surface of the biscuits with some butter. Place these in a tray to be placed in an oven.

Bake these biscuits for about 10 mins or so. The top should become golden brown. Take them out of the oven, make Irani chai and experience the zaika of Hyderabad!

A few modifications to the above recipes that can and should be tried.
