Iyengar Bakery Khara Biscuits/ Savory Shortbread Cookie

This month we are supposed to amke this khara Biscuit for our ICC. As soon as I received this recipe, I was so excited. I love spicy cookie and I haven't tasted this ever. Also the pics looked so tempting and so delicious. Immediately I tried this cookie and it tasted very good. We loved it. Let me get into the ingredients and the preparation without wasting time. 


All Purpose Flour - 2 cups
Butter 1/3 Cup softened
Sugar - 4 Tsp
Salt- 1 tsp
Green chilli - 3 chopped
Cilantro - 3 tbsp chopped
Yogurt - 3 tbsp


Pre heat oven to 350 degree Fahrenheit. In a cookie sheet spread aluminium foil and grease it with oil.

Mix flour and salt and set aside. Now beat butter and sugar until creamy and then add 2 tbsp yogurt and continue to beat. 

Add the flour mix and bend it to a crumbly dough. Add cilantro and chilli and mix well. Add 1 tbsp of yogurt if you feel the dough is too thick. I added and worked it with my hands. 

Roll the dough into 1/4" thickness and cut into cookie shapes. 

Place them in a cookie sheet and bake it for 20 - 25 mins. Mine took close to 25 mins. Rotate the cookies halfway. When you see them light brown, take it out, let it cool and enjoy. 

It tasted great even warm.
