In our house everyone likes savory items than sweet one. So I regularly make Khare Shankarpale than sweet one. But this time I baked it instead of deep frying it. This recipe I read in Sanjeev Kapoor's book and tried it. So The Indian version of salty cookies ..... just for you…….
Whole wheat flour (aata) - 1/2 cup
All purpose flour (maida) - 1/2 cup
Ghee - 1/4 cup
Ajwain - 1/2 teaspoon
Baking powder - 1/2 teaspoon
Salt as per taste
Mix the aata and maida with baking powder. Add ghee and rub it with hands to get crumby consistency. Now add salt and ajwain. Now add cold water to make stiff dough. Cover and keep aside for 15-20 minutes. Preheat oven to 200°C. Now roll the dough like Roti. Cut it into diamond shape. Grease the baking tray and place the cut diamonds on it. Bake it for 15 minutes on 200°C. Store it in airtight container. It is very good evening snacks, specially in this vacation time.
