Winters. The very mention of this season brings a magnitude of things to one's mind - woolens,tweeds,boots and FOOD! The very mention of FOOD catches my attention. There is a section a food items, common in households across India, that is made only in winters, namely-goond ka ladoos, gur chakki, besan ladoos and last but not the least til ladoos. Now til is a very versatile ingredient apart from being very healthy. So I decided to give the traditional til ka ladoos a miss this season and try something new. The result was an amazing, healthy snack TIL CRACKERS!
- Dry roast the sesame seeds and leave it aside to cool.
- Sieve all the dry ingredients twice (maida, atta, baking powder and seasalt). This is very important as it ensures uniform mixing of all the ingredients.
- Cut the frozen butter into pieces and mix it with the dry ingredients. Rub it with your fingers till the mixture becomes crumbly.
- Add 1 tablespoon of milk at a time and knead the mixture into a dough.
- Cling wrap the dough and keep it in the freezer for 20-25 min.
- In the meantime beat the melted butter and the room temperature milk together.
- Take the dough out and let it rest for about 5 mins so that it becomes a little soft.
- Pre-heat the oven to 180C.
- Roll the dough into as thin a layer as possible.
- Cut small pieces with a cookies cutter and arrange the pieces on a baking tray lined with a butter paper.
- Brush the pieces with the beaten milk and butter mixture.
- Bake for 10-15 mins. The biscuits will be light brown and crispy. Cool on a cooling tray.
