I really miss toasted crunchy bread crusts, namkeen mixes and rusk. It was the “missing crunch” that led me to making these absolutely paleo and really spicy onion biscuits. Right now I am in heaven, sipping my cup of tea, munching on spicy onion and coriander biscuits and watching the rain.

Bliss

The trick is to find a good replacement for flour or wheat. Coconut flour gets clumpy and almond flour is too moist, but one has to make do.

Ingredients
  1. 1/2 cup tapioca flour
  2. 1/2 cup sorghum flour (jwar)
  3. 1/2 cup almond flour
  4. 2 tablespoon ghee
  5. 2 teaspoon baking soda
  6. 2 tablespoon warm water
  7. 1 large onion minced
  8. 6 green chilli minced
  9. 1 small bunch of coriander leaves minced
  10. Salt and pepper to taste
Instructions
  1. Mix all the flours, baking soda, salt and pepper
  2. Add the ghee and rub it with your fingers until it looks like bread crumbs
  3. Add the water slowly and bring the flours together
  4. Knead until you have a tight dough
  5. Do not add extra water at this point or your biscuits wont be crunchy
  6. Add the onion chilli and coriander
  7. Knead and let it rest for 10 minutes so that the onions leave water.
  8. Knead again
  9. Roll really thin and cut into your desired shape
  10. Prick the biscuits with a fork so that they do not rise and arrange on baking sheet
  11. Bake for ten minutes at 180 degree C
  12. Flip over and bake again for 10 minutes
  13. Let them cool so that they are crispy
Notes
  1. Keep a close watch on the oven so that the biscuits don't burn. They are thin and have a tendency to cook fast and every oven is different. It takes 10 minutes to cook one side on mine
