I enjoyed these snacks as a kid. These savory jeera cookies will satisfy craving all in one go. They are crispy, buttery and as well as very addictive. They are also known as salt biscuits. We love to enjoy these salted jeera biscuits with our evening tea. If you prefer sweetness, then add 3 to 4 tbsp powdered sugar and beat well with butter.

If you have enjoyed Cashew cookies that I’ve shared earlier, you are definitely going to enjoy this savory jeera cookies recipe too.

Refrigerating the dough helps the cookies to hold shape while baking.


lastly, these cumin cookies have a longer shelf life and hence it is recommended to preserve in an airtight container.
