Preparing droolworthy fresh biscuits and cookies at home is a very relaxing activity. Baking them fresh and eating a piece or two at tea time is a boon. The house will smell like a bakery and it can be a family activity. Involving kids too in the process of making biscuits and cookies teaches them teamwork and more importantly teaches them cooking . A childhood favourite is this homemade coconut biscuit.
Homemade coconut biscuit or kobbri biscuit was a common snack during childhood. Along with benne biscuit & khara biscuit, coconut biscuit used to be at home for an after school snack. The trio are very flavourful and the coconut biscuit recipe here completes my childhood biscuit collection. ... “Coconut Biscuit | Kobbri Biscuit | Biscuit Recipes”

Whatever the weather is, we all need a cup of our hot beverage, tea or coffee or milk. In childhood days, it was almost customary to have freshly baked goods once in a few weeks. We used to all wait for such days, freshly baked benne biscuit, fruity dil pasand, soft oozy honey cakes, hot & spicy aloo buns and nippattu! Of course Iyengar bakery khara biscuit was a regularly featured baked item from the bakery!
As I write this I can imagine those rainy days and taking in the fresh smells just after coming home from school. Oh, what joy! Iyengar bakery khara biscuit is a purely South Indian affair. Iyengar bakery khara biscuit (or simply khara biskuttu) is a mildly spicy biscuit with super tasty flavours from curry leaves & green chilli. ... “Iyengar Bakery Khara Biscuit | Khara Biscuit | Biscuit Recipes”
Crisp, salty, sweet, nutty, baked shankarpali, badam-kaju & ajwain-jeera biscuits

During Deepavali/Diwali, making Shankarpali/Shakkarpare snacks is very common. They are deep fried biscuits which are crisp with both salty and sweet versions. How about trying baked versions of this famous snack? Baked shankarpali are easy to make and you can change the flavours as you want. Here I have used only butter whereas some people do use vegetable shortening (dalda) which does not contain very healthy fats hence I generally never use it.
These can be made in bulk and 1 cup of all purpose flour yields a lot of biscuits. Just store these biscuits in air tight containers and they last for a few days. The base for both versions is the same. I have illustrated the base for both biscuits and then extended them into their respective flavours.
The sweet version can also be made plain without any nuts but adding almonds-cashews gives them a nice texture and flavour. The salty ones can also be made plain or even ground black pepper can be added in place of ajwain-jeera. The choice is yours! Also try benne biscuit recipe. ... “Baked Shankarpali | Baked Shakkarpare | How to make baked shankarpali?”

Benne biscuits are one of those snacks which most of us remember from our childhood. Also called as benne biskuttu (butter like biscuits), these Iyengar bakery style soft and buttery biscuits along with the khara biscuit (spicy and salty version) used to be a special treat for most kids. Butter is not used anywhere in the recipe. I have adapted the recipe I had read a few months back on a blog called sumscuisine. Bake these aromatic soft buttery melt-in-the-mouth biscuits and store them in an airtight jar. Enjoy them one or many at tea-time. ... “Benne Biscuit”
