Sweet and Salt Biscuits (Vaamu Biscuits)


Maida (All purpose flour) : 1 cup
Butter : 1 3/4 oz
Vaamu (Ajwain/Thymol seeds) : 1/2 tsp
Salt : 1/2 tsp
Sugar : 3 tsp
Milk : 6 to 7 tsp

  • In a mixing bowl, take maida and add thymol seeds, salt and sugar to it.
  • Melt butter and add to the maida.
  • Mix well until all the ingredients are combined properly.
  • Add milk and knead to a soft dough.
  • Preheat oven to 350 deg.
  • Make balls out of the dough and with a rolling pin, roll them to 1/2 cm thick flat chapatis.
  • Cut into round discs or with any shaped  cookie cutters.
  • Don't forget to poke with a fork, otherwise the biscuits will puff up.
  • In a baking tray, dust some flour and arrange the biscuits.
  • Bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until the edges turn to golden brown in color.
  • Serve with coffee or tea.
