  • 1 cup wheat flour You can use maida too
  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/4 tsp salt


  • Oven version : To a mixing bowl - add butter,sugar beat well until creamy.Now to a sieve add flour and salt.Sieve well.
  • Now mix well with your finger tips to bring together(Do not knead).Soft dough ready.Shape as a cylinder, cling wrap it.
  • Refrigerate it atleast for an hour.After an hour open, slice into 1/4 inch thickness.Preheat oven at 180 deg C for 10 mins.Arrange in baking tray.Prick with fork in the center to avoid puffing.
  • Bake in preheated oven at 180 deg C for 10-12 mins.Keep an eye, when it starts to brown at edges its done.Let it cool then store.
  • Stove top version: To a pot add salt and spread it around 1/2 inch thickness.Place a stand on it.Close with lid and preheat in low medium flame for 10 mins.Then open and place the plate with biscuits.I used a normal steel plate with butter paper lined.
  • Close with lid and cook for around 12-15 mins in low medium flame until the edges turn golden.Remove carefully and allow it to cool.


  • The baking time may vary depending on the thickness and size of the biscuits so adjust accordingly.
  • You can even roll the dough, use cookie cutters and cut them.
  • I have used wheat flour here, you can replace with maida too.
  • Do not reduce butter then the texture may differ.
