We’ve all heard of chocolate chip cookies, fudge cookies and all sorts of sweet cookies. Today I’ve made some Masala Cookies, yes MASALA!
After making numerous sweet dishes for Diwali, I thought let’s make something that I could enjoy with a hot cuppa. These cookies are made with plain flour, spices, yogurt and butter. They are salty and spicy with a hint of sweetness. It’s also a healthier baked option compared to the deep fried traditional Diwali snacks that we usually eat.
Plain flour – this is regular all purpose flour.
Butter – unsalted preferably, you’ll need this as a main ingredient along side with the flour. This is what makes the cookies so soft and keeps them moist.
Yogurt – greek full fat which is nice and creamy.
I made two batches in the afternoon, so it’s really easy to put together. I used a biscuit mould for this, there is an option to roll out the dough and use a cookie cutter.
