Recipe for Homemade Rava Biscuits | Quick and Easy Sooji Biscuits Without an Oven:
1. Begin by whisking ghee, sugar, and warm milk in a spacious bowl.
2. Incorporate rava, atta (wheat flour), milk powder, salt, cardamom powder, and desiccated coconut.
3. Thoroughly mix the ingredients and allow the mixture to rest for 10 minutes.
4. Afterward, gently knead the mixture by hand until a soft dough forms. Divide the dough into small portions and roll them into lemon-sized balls.
5. Gently flatten each dough ball and arrange them on a tray.
6. In a kadhai, heat a moderate amount of oil for frying (less than what's needed for deep-frying). Once the oil is moderately hot, begin adding the flattened dough balls.
7. Flip the biscuits as needed, ensuring both sides cook evenly. Keep flipping until they acquire a golden-brown hue with a few surface cracks.
8. Allow the biscuits to cool before savouring them alongside your tea. Store the remaining biscuits in an airtight container.
