Maida Biscuits

Ugadi is approaching and relatives are coming for weekend, so thought of making these sweet little treats for the festival. My Mom uses clarified butter for these but I am substituting the recipe with unsalted butter. I love the crispy nature of these biscuits.

This recipe yields 12 medium size cookies or 24 small ones.


Maida /All-Purpose flour - 1 cup
Sugar - 1/2 cup
Clarified Butter / Unsalted Butter(melted) - 1/2 cup (or little more)

  • Mix Maida and sugar in a food processor for 3min.s.
  • Add melted butter slowly to this until the mix forms a tight dough, just enough to make round balls.
  • Preheat oven at 325F and grease the cookie sheet with oil and line the sheet with parchment paper.
  • Make small rounds with the dough and flatten them like a cookie/biscuit shape. Place these in the cookie sheet with enough gap between the cookies.
  • Bake for 15-20 min.s , if the backside of the cookie starts brown in color, remove the tray from oven.

Cool for 5min.s and keep them on a 2-layered tissue paper to absorb the ghee/butter . Store these in an air-tight container for 1 week.
