Atta Biscuits/Wheat Biscuits

Biscuits have always been a favorite of mine. In my childhood I remember I would always ask my dad to buy from bakery. This would exactly taste like the one we get from the bakery or a tea kadai. I never wanted to share them, well now I made them myself so that I can literally have the entire batch! I used ghee in this recipe, you may use butter too but try to stick to the ghee. It just makes all the difference. Hope you give these atta biscuits a try, it will definitely make your chai time more enjoyable.

My favorite chai time biscuits are often the ones which are super simple like the Marie biscuits, Parle-G biscuits or these atta biscuits. Atta is the wheat flour, one which we use everyday to make our Chappathi and parotta. These cookies are one of my favorites and the best part about them is they are so easy to make. Its a 3 ingredients biscuits and no mixer Is required to make these. There are no eggs and no baking powder and baking soda either. You can make it in any shape as you like. I have made it in two different shapes, square shaped and moon shaped/crescent shaped. You can make these with oven or without oven, on the stove-top. I have shown both the methods in this recipe.

I have added Step by Step Pictures for this recipe. Let’s get started!

Atta/Wheat Flour1 Cup

Pinch of Salt


Ingredients (Refer the above table for exact measurements)
  • Pre heat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Line baking trays with parchment paper and set aside.
  • For making it on a stove-top, pre heat a wide pan by placing a stand inside.
  • In a bowl mix together powdered sugar, ghee, atta/wheat flour and a pinch of salt. You may also add 1/8 tsp of cardamom powder if you like. I haven’t added here.
  • Mix and combine. Use your hands to mix everything together and form a dough.
  • Using your hand or a rolling pin roll it evenly. Now just keep pressing and bring the dough together from sides. Using a cookie cutter, knife or a small bowl, shape it and cut cookies 1/4 inch thick. I have made it in a moon shape which i baked it in the oven.
  • Bake for 15-20 minutes or till the biscuits are light golden brown in color.
  • Cool on wire rack and then store atta biscuits in an airtight container.
  • For making it on the stove-top shape it, place it on a plate and keep it in the preheated pan, cover and cook in a medium heat for about 20 – 25 minutes or until the biscuits are slight golden brown in color.

Tips & Notes:

  • Baking for 20 minutes will result in super crispy cookies. Bake for around 18 minutes if you don’t want too much crunch.
  • You may use unsalted butter in place of ghee, but I highly recommend using the ghee.
  • I got around 20 small cookies, you may get more or less depending on the size of your cookie cutter.
