Maida biscuits

Maida biscuit is a sweet snack prepared with maida and sugar. It is one of my favorite sweets.

Ingredients:

      • 1 1/2 cup – Maida
      • 3/4 cup – Sugar
      • 1/4 cup – Warm water
      • 1 1/2 tbsp – Ghee
      • 1 pinch – Baking soda
      • 1 pinch – Salt

Maida biscuits process

Preparation method:

  1. Mix sugar in warm water until all the sugar is completely dissolves. Set aside.
  2. Take a mixing bowl, add maida, ghee, salt, baking soda and mix well. Now slowly add sugar water and knead to form a firm dough.
  3. Again knead the dough and divide into equal balls. Take a ball and roll out into chappathi ( it should be thick) and cut it into square or diamond shaped pieces.
  4. Heat oil in deep frying pan and fry them over medium flame until slightly golden brown on both the sides. Allow them to cool down and store in a air tight container. Maida biscuits are ready.

Notes:

  • Use the exact water measurement given in the ingredient list to get soft and firm dough.
  • Do not worry if square or diamonds get together. When you drop in oil, it will separate. Handle carefully while dropping in oil.
  • Sugar has to completely dissolve in water before mixing in maida to ensure even distribution of sweetness and texture.
