Masala Chilli Cookies – Post 3

Who doesn’t like cookies but while I am doing the course (specially in the cookies week) I had such an overdose of sweet things that I couldn’t stand the sight of sugar and all I wanted to do was eat loads and loads of spicy stuff… That is when I chanced upon these cookies somewhere and I sure had to make them…. and man how yummy they were 😀 😀

  • Custard Powder – 15 gms
  • Curd – 25 gm

PS: this yields quite a lot so make half the recipe if u like

      u know neha i was tempted to try with full whole wheat flour, the original recipe asked for full maida but i dont know what stopped me

      go ahead and try and let me know if it works (I personally think it should)

    Hi, first time here. Kudos on a great blog! Baking & decorating runs in my blood as well, and I’m always on the lookout for great recipes, especially now savoury treat recipes for my daughter’s snacks …. don’t want her getting hooked to sweets alone. Will surely be trying this one out.
