Masala Spice Cookies




Introduction: Masala Spice Cookies

About: A Software Engineer. I love learning new things. Hooked up with Instructables. It is the biggest find I ever made. :D Cooking and Crochet are my passion. I love to learn different techniques and cuisines.

I have been an active member 5 years ago. Back with a flavourful yet simple recipe. The cookies has an Indian flavor to it and its flaky. The flaky and crunchy texture is what I love about it. Its a good tea time snack.


2 cups All Purpose Flour (Maida)
1/3 cup Butter , softened
2 tablespoons Curd (Dahi / Yogurt)
1 teaspoon Red chilli powder
1 teaspoon Ginger , grated
3 teaspoons Sugar
1 teaspoon Salt
2 teaspoons Cumin seeds (Jeera)
2 Green Chillies , finely chopped
1 sprig Curry leaves , finely chopped
1/2 teaspoon Baking powder
1/2 teaspoon Asafoetida (hing)

Step 1:

The first step would be to soften the butter till its creamy. Once its soft and fluffy add in sugar and beat them together.

Step 2: All the Other Ingredients

Now its adding in all the spices mentioned in the recipes. If you like real hot flavor you can vary the quantity of the red chilly powder. Also chop the green chilly and add to the dough. Curd, hing, salt, cumin seeds add in lot of flavor to the cookie dough. Ginger, all purpose flour, baking powder and thats it. Knead them all together.

    Question 5 weeks ago on Introduction

    Hello, On step 3, you show the cookies on a cookie sheet, but I do not see a baking time or temperature. Are these baked? If so, how long & what temperature. Thank you
    Also, I am not familiar with Asafoetida (hing), is this a powder, & would I find this in an Indian spice store. I would like to try these cookies, these sound very good. Thank you
