Maida Biscuits

Very simple biscuits but just intended for kids as it contains a lot of ghee.

What I used:

All purpose flour / Maida : 1 cup
Sugar : 1/2 cup
Ghee / clarified butter : 1/2 cup
Miniature semi sweet chocolate chips : a few (optional)

Makes 15 medium sized biscuits.

How I did:
  • Preheat the oven to 325 F.
  • Combine maida and sugar in a bowl and mix thoroughly.
  • Add ghee and knead into a soft dough.
  • Divide the dough into lemon sized balls.
  • Grease a baking tray with some ghee and arrange the balls leaving enough space between each of them to avoid sticking to each other. 
  • Gently press and flatten the balls a little with your fingers. If desired, decorate with chocolate chips.
  • Bake for 12 to 15 minutes or till the edges turn to golden brown.
  • Remove from oven and let cool for 10 minutes on the baking tray.
  • Let cool completely before serving and storing.  If chocolate chips are used, refrigerate for a while before serving.
