Baked Onion Biscuits

Hi friends, how are you all doing? Its been a long time since i posted a new recipe. Got a bit lazy during the holidays and a few short trips on top of it kept me from posting one. Well, here is a new recipe, Onion biscuits. Wondering, what the heck are they? Well, they look much like crackers, but the texture of'em, when you bite into it, made me call 'biscuits'. As i was googling for a snack to beat my evening hunger and ta-da, landed on this wonderful page 'Indianvegetariankitchen' and immediately i knew that i am gonna taste'em with in a couple of hours and i did. The best part is, 'it is baked'. Thanks to her fantastic recipe, i gobbled 3 to 4 biscuits at a sitting and can't keep my hands off  of it. Here it is for you to try and enjoy just like me.


1.5 cups Whole Wheat Flour
1/2 cup Rice flour
1/2 big Yellow Onion (finely chopped)
3 Small Green Chillies (finely chopped)
1tsp Black Sesame seeds
1tsp Cumin seeds
1/4tsp Asafoetida (hing)
2tbsp Cilantro (chopped)
1/4 cup  Water
1/2 cup Oil
1tsp Salt
How to:
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with foil and keep it aside.
  • In a bowl, mix together the dry ingredients. (flours, sesame seeds, cilantro, asafoetida and salt.)

  • Then add the onions, green chilli and cilantro.

  • Pour the water and gently mix it, followed by the oil. 

  • Pour it slowly and knead it for 5 mins. The kneaded dough should be soft and easily breakable.

  • Take a lime size ball (or any size of your desire), place it on the foiled baking sheet and gently press with both hands to form a flat, thin, rough rounds. (You can also use a cookie cutter or any round mouth cup to perfect the shapes or just leave it like that.)

  • Do the rest of the dough in a similar pattern and bake'em for 30 minutes or until the top is evenly browned.

  • Let the perfect and/or rough shapes cool on a cooling rack before you store'em in an airtight container.

  • Serve with tea or coffee and enjoy the crunchiness.

  • Do not add too much of water. After using a 1/4 cup, sprinkle once or twice, if needed. (I sprinkled it twice.)
  • Press the dough balls thin before baking. The thinner, the better.
  • You can also try adding ajwain seeds or minced garlic to pump up the flavor.
