MBP-Baked Onion & Wheat Biscuits

Here's my entry for Coffee's MBP event. Here is the original recipe from Seema and below is a picture of this really yum snack! Thank you, Seema! We all loved it, especially my FIL, who made sure I had saved this recipe! :)

Since Seema's blog is now private, here is the recipe reconstructed (may not be exactly like what she has posted) from the original post of Shammi's:
2 cups whole wheat flour (or plain if you prefer)
Salt to taste
1 tsp red chilli powder (or to taste)
1 small onion, chopped fine
3-4 jalapenos/green chilies, chopped fine
1 tsp kasuri methi
1/2 tsp cumin powder
1/2 tsp coriander powder
1 tbsp black sesame seeds (you can use white or natural too)
2 tbsp oil
Water as required

Mix all ingredients together except water. Slowly add water and knead to a stiff dough. Roll out into small chappati-like circles.
Heat oven to 300F. Line cookie sheet with the rolled out circles. Bake for 10 minutes or until they are browned and crisp.

Asha- they came out so well! I had run out of maida and so used bisquick in it's place. The smell of the biscuit is almost like maddur vada! Nice and khara!

Mythreyee and Swapna- do try it! I couldn't believe how easy it was to make and the taste... wah! :)

Seema- It was so nice! I loved the aroma! When I open the dabba it's kept in, it smells just like maddur vada and I love that! Thank your for a wonderful recipe, Seems!

It'll get better soon and I'll be back!! :)
Hope you are doing well, dear Sup. Thank you so much for enquiring!

Vcuisine said...

Vani, don't know, how it happens, my comments are not showing up most of the time. Surprised. I left a comment on your friends and behind the apron topics. Just now saw it was not there. Any way, just to tell I read everything and very nice to see your family photos. This dish is great. Viji

Kora said...
