Coffee’s MBP ~ Shammi’s Baked Methi Biscuits

Yum, yum! That’s the refrain on my tongue every time I head over to
Food, In The Main…, one of the first blogs I discovered, and one I always enjoy!

Every time I read Shammi’s recipes, I get the feeling I could run into the kitchen and “whip that dish right up”. She leaves nothing to chance: easy-to-follow directions and great step-by-step photos are always there to pave the way, along with a healthy dose of dry humor.

When I needed a recipe for Coffee’s March MPB, complete with rolling pin,
I remembered Shammi’s healthy, yummy-looking methi biscuits. I’ve been meaning to try them, yet never seemed to have the time… you know how that goes. Well, the joke was on me, because these crunchy treats really do whip up in a flash, and they taste like you slaved all day over a hot stove. I followed the recipe exactly, with the exception of using ajwain seeds because I had no sesame. Kind of ironic since Shammi used sesame instead of ajwain! Next time I’ll try the sesame.

    I am trying to get the recipe to make the methi biscuits, have tried Shammi’s site link and email link but no luck. Can you help me out with acquiring this recipe? Thank you.

    Hi Pat, looks like I made a mistake — I have fixed the link to Shammi’s recipe. Here it is for you:
