Maida cookies

These biscuits are famous in Hyderabad bakeries.We used call them as chandamama biscuits in my childhood as they used to be in half moon shape.
This recipe i learnt from my aunt and baking instructions from net.

  • Maida : 1 cup
  • Dalda/butter : 1/2 cup or more
  • Powdered sugar : 1/2 cup(add more if more sweet is required)


  • Take a mixing bowl.Add maida and sugar and mix well.In the mean time melt the better or ghee in microwave.I used dalda.
  • Add butter and mix the dough well without any lumps.
  • Check whether you are able to make small biscuit shape or else add more butter.
  • Preheat the oven at 325degrees Fahrenheit .
  • Make cookies in which ever shape desired and put them in baking tray one by one.
  • Bake it till 12-15 min.Check whether the dough is baked or not.
  • Switch off the oven and let biscuits cool for some time and serve.
