Baked Masala Namak Para Recipe (Cumin & Fennel Spiced Biscuits)

Baked Masala Namak Para Recipe is an easy recipe prepared with fewer ingredients like maida, wheat flour and spices. Spices like carom seeds, cumin seeds, crushed pepper and hing are used to make this flavourful. Instead of deep frying these namak para, here I have baked them instead, such that there is negligible oil absorption in the recipe. You can serve Baked Masala Namak Para Recipe along with Tea Sandwiches Recipe with Beets, Radish, Avocado and Arugula and chai made with Chai Ka Masala Recipe (Homemade Spice Powder for Tea).
