Sesame & Coriander Biscuits


Ingredients

1 cup Maida

1/2 tsp baking powder

1 tsp salt

2-3 tsp sugar

1/4 cup finely chopped coriander

2 tbsp white sesame seeds + for sprinkling on top

3/4 cup softened butter

1 tsp yogurt(optional)

Method

  • Mix flour, baking powder, sugar & salt in a mixing bowl. Add butter, Do not knead, just mix it well with your hands until you get a bread crumb consistency
  • Add chopped Coriander leaves, sesame seeds and mix and make a soft dough and refrigerate for 30min ( can use yogurt to get the right consistency)
  • Now roll the dough and cut it with the help of a cookie cutter, sprinkle sesame seeds on it, press a little so that it sticks to it
  • Bake it in preheated oven at 180'c for 10 to 15 minutes or till it is slightly brown on the edges
  • Cool it on a wire rack and then serve when required
