  • A cup - Pista-badam, coarsely powdered.

How to Make Pista badam biscuits

  • Mix maida, sugar, soda, dry fruit powder and the nutmeg powder well.
  • Add the saffron if using, mix well.
  • Melt the vegetable ghee and let it become warm enough to put your hand.
  • Once it is warm, mix it into the flour mixture and make a dough. The dough should be loose enough to make small balls.
  • Flatten the ball slightly and make a depression.
  • Grease a baking tray and start placing these flattened balls with a little distance.
  • Pre-heat the oven to 200 degrees, place the tray.
  • Keep watching as it burns.
  • It will approximately take around 5 mins. Remove as soon as it becomes light pink.
  • Remove it and cool. Keep in airtight box.
