Maida Biscuits

Priya, another blogger who hosts Sugar and Spices, posted the recipe for Namakparas, the recipe looked soo simple and inviting that I could not wait to try it. Last night I got back home and made a tiny batch of these.
I modified the recipe to suit the ingredients I had. I dint have Nigella seeds and used Ajwain powder and some Jeera (Cumin seeds) instead. And a little extra oil went into the dough making as I failed to balance the oil can ;-), this changed the texture of the biscuits a bit. They were a bit crumbly, but the taste was good. Lots of room for improvement though :-)

Hi Priya,
welcome to food blogging.
I think you are 3rd priya of the food blogging.
Nice name for your blog and i do make this with wheat flour which we can convert into sweet and salty .Hope to see more recipes from you.

The Priya's are going to rule the blog word soon...hehe :)
This only name stuck on my mind for the blog :). My mom also makes the sweet and savory version of these biscuits..but I am not sure of the flour she uses. Will get her to clarify it. And I did try the sweet version by dropping the hot biscuits in powdered sugar :)
