Followed your recipe and made them today. They turned out delicious! Thanks for sharing the recipe. The only thing I didn’t get was to have top part golden/brown. Bottom was crusty and golden. Not sure if baking for another 2 mins would help.

Tarla Dalal    Hi, You have baked it right, this biscuit does not need very dark brown colour. once baked allow it to cool it completely on the tray or the wrack. it will become hard enough and it will gain a light brown colour only on the edges.

Tarla Dalal    Hi, yes it not used in this recipe. we need it to be crunchy and flat like a biscuit. adding soda or powder will give the rise which is not required for the biscuit.

Can I just make it without the sugar and increase the salt to make them salty biscuits. Do I need to add anything else to make the biscuits without sugar.

Tarla Dalal    Hi Neha,Yes you can make it without sugar. But we would suggest you to make it sweet and salty, which will taste really nice. Just add 1 tbsp of sugar instead of 1/4 cup of sugar. If you like you can add 1/2 tsp roasted crushed cumin seeds as well. Do try the recipe and give us your feedback.
