Masala Biscuits / Khara Biscuits

Hurry !!! Its baking time. This is my first recipe for biscuits. Before my son was born I was very much into baking Biscuits & Cakes. Somehow i couldn't get time to make baking items after he was born. Now he is grown up and he enjoys having cookies. So thot to make and also share this recipe. I learnt making biscuits when i was in college.

This is very delicious not very spicy & not very salty too. You can have it at any time prefer with the tea/coffee time. I hope kids will also love this.

PS : Depends upon the Oven..Please be sure the temparatures of the oven may vary for different ovens. It may over heat or some may have less heat. I normally do @ 350 F (175C). The best way is to start on low heat then you can make it high later.
