I have shared a lot of sweet cookies but this time I'm sharing my mom's recipe, its savoury masala cookies which me and my sister loved to eat like crazy when we were younger. All the Mother's out there will agree on this, that we won't allow our children to munch in more sugary snacks likes chocolate, pastries & sweet cookies. So we try to make some healthy alternative at home which would be tempting and delicious at the same time. My Mom bake these Spiced cookies often and instead of butter she uses Desi cow ghee. And she uses all homemade grounded spices for making these cookies.

When we were younger, I remember we didn't have OTG oven to bake so my Mother bake it on gas stove. She baked these amazing Masala Cookies which has less amount of Sugar and healthy too.

Now I too baked these masala cookies for our recent travel. You can find lot of cookies recipes in my channel. These cookies are the best compliment with lunch boxes.

Let's check out the Ingredients & recipe to make this delicious looking Spiced Cookies. If you like the recipe then please comment below, I would love to read your thoughts!!!!
