  • 2 cups - Maida.
  • 1 cup - Sugar (powdered).
  • A pinch - Baking soda.
  • A cup - Pista-badam, coarsely powdered.
  • 1 tsp - Saffron (optional).
  • 1 tsp - Nutmeg and Cardamom powder.

  • How to Make Pista badam biscuits:

    1. Mix maida, sugar, soda, dry fruit powder and the nutmeg powder well.
    2. Add the saffron if using, mix well.
    3. Melt the vegetable ghee and let it become warm enough to put your hand.

    7. Pre-heat the oven to 200 degrees, place the tray.
