About Whole Wheat Cumin Cookies | Jeera Biscuits Recipe

Jeera biscuits are the most popular goodies of the local bakeries . One can find them in every road side stall. With a beautiful balance of sweetness and salt and with flavour of jeera that gets roasted while baking, these biscuits are unique in taste. I baked my own batch using whole wheat flour.

  • 1/2 stick butter (100 Gms)
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar

How to make Whole Wheat Cumin Cookies | Jeera Biscuits

  1. Beat butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
  2. In a bowl whisk together whole wheat flour, salt, baking powder and baking soda. 1 teaspoon cumin seeds.
  3. Add dry ingredients to butter sugar mixture and mix well till it resembles bread crumbs. Add milk. Begin by adding 2 tablespoons. Knead. Add 2 tablespoons more and knead.
  4. Add more milk only if the mixture feels dry. It should come together as a soft dough. It should not be sticky.
  5. Preheat oven to 170 degrees Centigrade. Grease a baking tray.
  6. Roll out a thick chapatti of dough on the floured counter. Sprinkle a pinch of cumin seeds. Press them with the roller. Cut out cookies with a cookie cutter. Arrange them on the baking tray.
  7. Bake for 12 -15 minutes till the cookies turn golden.
  8. Cool and store in an airtight container.

My Tip:

You may use 50% whole wheat flour and 50% all-purpose flour for crispier biscuits.
