My cousin in US asked me to post this recipe . So this is specially for her.
My kids liked this homemade biscuits very much.
Ingredients (Makes 40-45)
3 cups All Purpose Flour / Maida
1/2 cup Vegetable Oil
1 1/2 - 1 3/4 teaspoon Salt
3/4 cup Milk
1 tablespoon Butter / Ghee
- In a bowl, mix maida, oil and salt. It looks like bread crumbs. Pour 1/4 cup of milk at a time and mix it well. knead it for 6-8 mins.
- Add butter, mix it, knead it again for 2 mins and keep it aside for 10 mins. Pre heat oven. Divide dough in 4 equal parts. Dust the surface and dough with maida. Roll each part of the dough to thin layer. Use a cookie cutter to cut biscuits to a desired shape.
- Grease a oven tray and place these biscuits on tray. Biscuits puff up while baking. So you need to prick them with a fork. Bake the biscuits for about 12- 15 mins or till the edges of the biscuits turn golden brown. Remove the tray from oven, allow it to cool.
