One thing that I am trying to do lately is getting Sahil involved in my daily routines - especially in the kitchen. He's at an age where helping me out is actually *fun* for him....he will gladly help me set the dinner table, take out the garbage, fill the water pitcher...etc etc....So I am going to enjoy this phase of his while it lasts! This time, I had him help me make these "Jeera Khari Biscuits". I also encourage all of you to get your kids involved in the kitchen...even for those who don't have kids - yet, get your nephews and nieces or friend's kids to help out...all while making it fun for them! Make kid friendly recipes and just watch them gobble up their creations!
Here is the recipe for these easy, breezy Jeera Khari biscuits which Sahil had a blast making:
Ingredients: 1 roll of butter pastry puff dough, available at any grocery store in the freezer section.
Jeera seeds to garnish, Baking Sheet, Parchment Paper to line the sheet.
Preheat oven to 350F. Thaw the puff dough to package directions for around two hours. Unroll the dough and cut into small pieces. Sahil helped me cut these, with my supervision.
Garnish with Jeera seeds and bake for around 15 minutes until the biscuits are brown and crispy. Sahil did a great job of garnishing them....just look at those stubby little hands!
That's it...serve hot with some juice or chocolate milk for the kids. For me, I had it with some Toasted Coconut flavored coffee as a mid afternoon snack. Don't the Kharis look great? They taste even better than the store bought ones! You can also use these pastry sheets for Puff Samosas for a nice change from the usual.
I would also like to announce a new Blog Event called "Little Chefs In the Kitchen". I would like to host this event with all of your cooperation in the next month. Even for those of you who do not have a food blog, you can still participate....More details of this coming soon! You will be seeing more of Sahil and me in the kitchen in future posts! Enjoy.
