Biscuit Recipe | Wheat Biscuit Recipe

Biscuit Recipe – Biscuit is the most common go-to snacks with tea (chai) in India. I have used wheat flour for this recipe(You can also prefer using plain flour). A good biscuit in my mind should have a golden-brown crust and when you split it in half, it should be soft, flaky and moist enough to absorb a pat of butter. Use butter that shouldn’t be heated or melted, use butter present at room temperature. Biscuits should be baked in a hot oven so the dough sets quickly producing a golden brown top and bottom with white sides. The interior should be light and soft, and white in colour. Cool the biscuits uncovered for a crispy result.

  4. Add 3 tbsp of milk and mix it well and combine it to form a dough(No need to knead).
  5. When the dough is cut, it should have a crumble texture.
  6. Flaten and roll out slightly thick with the help of a rolling pin, and seal the edges with your hand if there’s a crack at the sides.
  7. Cut it into the desired size and shape with the help of a cookie cutter and make sure to gather the remaining dough and follow the same steps.
  8. Now place the cutout dough on a tray lined with baking paper.
  9. Place the tray in a preheated oven and bake the biscuits at 160-degree celsius for 15 minutes or till the edges turn slightly golden.
  10. Now cool down the biscuits as it is crispy when cooled.
