This benne biscuit can also be prepared using wheat flour. Preparing benne biscuit or butter cookies at home is very easy. Here I have explained both oven and pressure cooker method.
Benne biscuits are very popular in Karnataka. We used to enjoy these biscuits from Iyengar bakery during our school days. "Benne" translates to butter in Kannada language. But these biscuits (or cookies) are generally prepared using ghee or oil. Benne biscuit is an old recipe in our family. My aunt introduced it in our family when I was very young. My aunt and my mom used to bake these cookies using "sand baking method". They used to heat a big sand filled frying pan, place a plate above and bake the biscuits by closing the lid. It is quite safe and those biscuits were so yummy.
I keep preparing and experimenting different types of biscuits in microwave oven. I wanted to post "sand baking method" but ended up in posting this "cooker-salt baking method" as it is very dificult to arrange sand here.
I have also posted many Karnataka style sweet recipes like halu bai, thambittu, kumbalakayi halwa or kashi halwa, rava kesari bath, banana halwa, athrasa or kajjaya, coconut burfi and badam puri recipes. Also I have posted one easy and quick peda recipe for kids. Do read, try and enjoy!! I have made a quick video on this recipe, which I have embedded below. Please have a look.
