Atta Biscuits are basically a crispy and crunchy eggless, delicious Indian bakery style biscuits usually served as an accompaniment along with Indian chai.
Atta Biscuits; the term itself transports me to those carefree childhood days when each day after returning from school, we would happily dunk these Atta Biscuits into piping hot tea and just relish it...

My love for baking is evident from all the posts that I share with you guys.. but if there is one thing that I can bake from day in to day out then it has to be cookies. (I also have an entire playlist dedicated to cookies on Youtube; you must check it out if you like cookies too..)

What is so special about these Atta Biscuits?
To begin with unlike many other cookie recipes; these Atta Biscuits are made using Ghee or Clarified butter. The ghee adds in an amazing taste to the biscuits and also makes it super aromatic.
And the addition of cardamom further enhances its flavour and smell.
I absolutely loved the addition of saffron in this, but you can skip this if you want to.
These biscuits can be flavoured with any spice of your choice like cinnamon, nutmeg or you can even flavour it with garam masala; would be a nice twist.
Sky is the limit when it comes to imagination right!!!
So lets see how to make these delicious Atta Biscuit recipe.
- 1/2 cup Ghee or Clarified Butter softened (neither thick nor melted)
- 1/2 cup Caster Sugar
- 1.5 cup Atta or Wheat Flour
- 1/2 tsp Cardamom powder
- Pinch of saffron
- 2-3 tbsp Warm Milk
- Add the saffron to the warm milk, stir and let it infuse for at least 15 mins.
- Start by creaming the ghee and sugar until light, fluffy and almost white in colour using a hand whisk.
- Combine together the atta and cardamom powder and add it to the creamed ghee sugar mixture in 2 batches. Fold it until combined.
- Finally using a tbsp of saffron milk at a time; add to the flour and combine it into a dough. (I used about 2tbsp of milk to form a dough).
- Flatten it out, cling wrap and refrigerate for 15 mins.
- Roll the dough evenly and cut out cookies of desired shapes. (To make it extra special use the cookie stamps to write a message on top.)
- Bake in a preheated oven of 170°C for 10-12 mins or until light golden brown. Do check after 8 mins interval.
- You can always re-roll the scraps, cut out the cookies and bake as above.
Sometimes once baked the impression on the cookie fades away so to fix that; once the cookies are baked and still warm that is straight out from the oven then using the stamp just run over it once again to make the impression clear and distinct.
