These are very easy to make, you can adjust the flavors as per your taste. If you want the more salty taste than add a lesser quantity of sugar and more salt. In case want a sweeter side then reduce salt and add more sugar. Doing such little changes makes jeera biscuit or cumin cookies taste differently yet enjoyable. Baking for a longer time makes them crunchier side, so if you want your cookies soft then bake them for less time.

Jeera Biscuit | Cumin Cookies Recipe

Ingredient                                                                                   15 cookies

1 Cup whole wheat flour
1/2 Cup butter
1/4 Cup sugar
1/2 Tsp salt
1 Tblsp cumin seed
1-2 Tblsp milk
1/2 Tsp baking powder

Method

  1. First of all dry roast the cumin seeds and crush them. This time I used cumin powder which was not visible and my daughter ate without fuss.
  2. Grind sugar to make it a fine powder. It spreads evenly in the dough.
  3. In a mixing bowl take flour, butter, sugar, salt, baking powder and cumin seed powder. Combine well and make a soft dough. Add milk if the mixture is separating.
  4. Now roll it in a form of a log and wrap in cling film. Keep this log in the fridge for 30 minutes.
  5. After 30 minutes take out the log from the fridge and cut them with 5mm thickness.
  6. Preheat oven at 350F or 170C.
  7. Grease a cookie sheet and line all the cut cookies on the sheet.
  8. Bake them for 12-15 minutes. If you need more crunch then bake for another 3-4 minutes.
  9. Let the cookies come down at room temperature. They are very soft in texture as soon as they come out of the oven.
  10. Jeera biscuit or cumin cookies are ready to serve.

Note

  1. Adjust salt and sugar quantity to enhance the salty or sweet flavor.
  2. Bake few mins more to get more crunchy cookies.
  3. You can add cumin seed instead of powder. I added powder so that my daughter can eat.
  4. After making a dough you can directly cut cookies. Just divide dough into two parts. Roll down like flatbread and cut with your desired cookie cutter.
