Savory Maida Biscuits – Diamond Cuts

Maida Biscuits – Diamond Cuts Recipe
Recipe Source: Amma
Prep & Cooking: 45 mts
Cuisine: Andhra
1 1/2 cups maida/plain flour (u can use 1/2 cup whole wheat flour and 1 cup plain flour)
1 1/2 tbsps sesame seeds/til/nuvvulu
1/4 tbsp cumin seeds
1 tsp red chilli pwd or green chilli paste
1 tbsp hot oil or ghee or butter
salt to taste
water as required to prepare dough
oil for deep frying
1 In a wide plate, add the maida, atta, salt, chilli pwd, ghee or oil, sesame seeds and cumin seeds and combine. Knead the dough till smooth and firm. Test the dough for salt before preparing the biscuits.
2 Pinch a large lemon size ball of the dough and roll into slightly thick roti. Use a fork to prick the roti all over. Using a sharp knife, cut the roti length wise about an inch apart. Then cut into 2 inch squares.
3 Heat a wide heavy bottomed vessel with enough oil for deep frying and once the oil is hot, place the cut maida squares one by one into the hot oil, you will find the oil froth up in bubbles. Let the squares/chips fry on high flame till they rise to the surface.
4 Once the chips rise to the surface, turn heat to medium flame and cook the squares till they turn a golden shade. Turn them over gently during the cooking process so that they cook on all sides. Remember the frying has to be done on medium flame to achieve that golden color and crispness. If you reduce flame to low, the chips will absorb a lot of oil, so keep flame on medium to high while frying.
5 Use a slotted ladle to remove onto an absorbent paper and cool. Cool completely before storing in an air tight metallic container.
