How To Make Atta Biscuit | Whole Wheat Cookies | @anupama_dreams

Hello Chaps,

Hope this weekend treated you well. For us here, it was super entertaining and perfectly hot — just the way a summer-time weekend should be. So much relishing this summer-y winds. 😉 Beach and outdoor trips are into full swing, and for us, going out daily is an obligation these days. I am loving the glowing charm on everyone’s face around here. People are loving this long awaited summer, and everyone is wishing for it to stay for a longer time.

Remember, I mentioned that July is little ‘A’s summer holiday month. And when you have a little one at home it’s kinda hard to concentrate on other things. This is exactly what is happening here — little ‘A’ is nearby all the time and her cutesy chats are never ending, including she doesn’t like to take a nap anymore.

Now you can imagine that I am barely able to concentrate on blogging these days. Although I am absolutely loving the fact that I am able to spend some classic time with her. I told you that she loves to talk all the time, and I sometimes she really does the mature talking that I even feel like she has already grown up. Time does fly with these little bundles of joy. Our Mommy-daughter cooking/baking is on full throttle. Whenever we are not going out, we are either baking/cooking, or snacking picnics with her toy gang. 😉

These Indian style Atta Biscuits I am sharing today are the ones I bake often. Little A and I once again made these on Saturday evening, but the video I am sharing was made earlier. I was planning to share it earlier, but I had so many other recipes lined-up, so I didn’t get a chance to share this one. But when I saw this video in my drafts recently, it felt like this video was Godsent, since I am not making any videos in this month of July.

My video shooting speed has slowed down, but I am on a cooking-spree. I am so pleased that I could share this recipe today. I believe in the present, so can’t rely on tomorrow.

These Atta Biscuits are very typical Indian cookies which are savored during morning and evening tea-times. Knowing that they are tea time cookies, you probably would have figured out that they go delightfully well with Indian Style Milk Chai. It could be Masala Chai or something like ginger-cardamom tea. Tea and biscuits are one of the best combinations for Tea time snacks in India. And this combo is one thing which is common in almost every Indian household.

In India, mornings start with tea and biscuits in most of the families. And people drink up to 2-3 cups of milk tea daily. I know that sounds too much, but believe me, the Indian milk tea is kinda addictive — you just can’t resist it. During my India visits, I make sure to drink tea every time it is made and biscuits/cookies are a must with that. Just love spiced Indian tea.

Here in Europe, I don’t drink tea every day, but whenever I make Indian style chai, I pair it with some biscuits/cookies — be it jeera biscuits, Nankhatai or these atta biscuits. And then I dip them in my tea and enjoy the deliciousness. Dipping cookies in tea may sound unique, but it is just out of this world. Old habits die hard. 😉
