Tukdi: Spicy Indian Biscuits [Vegan]

This Recipe is :


Cook Time



  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/4 cup rice flour
  • 1 teaspoon cumin seeds
  • A pinch of asafoetida
  • 2 teaspoons red chili powder or cayenne pepper
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable shortening
  • Salt, to taste


  1. Mix all-purpose flour, wheat flour, rice flour, asafoetida, chili powder, shortening, and salt, and mix well.
  2. Now add warm water little by little and knead to form a semi-soft dough.
  3. Keep this aside for 30 minutes.
  4. Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  5. Take a big ball of dough. Using a rolling pin, roll the dough into a thin circle and using a pizza cutter or knife cut them into squares, diamonds, or any desired shape.
  6. Place each piece on lightly greased baking sheet. Bake for about 10-15 minutes, or until once. If you’d like, flip them after 5 minutes. Depending on the thickness the time may vary slightly.


Store it in air tight container. The biscuits will remain fresh for at least 15 days.
