  3. Preheat the oven to 180 C. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

  4. Remove the khara biscuit from the refrigerator and on a lightly floured surface roll the dough out until it has a 2 mm thickness.

  5. Using cookie cutters, cut the rolled dough into desired shape and place it on the prepared baking sheet. Place the tray in the oven and bake for about 20 mins or until the edges begin to start during golden brown.

  6. Remove the Indian Spicy Masala Cookie (Khara Biscuit) from the oven and allow it to cool completely. The cookies continue to cook as they are cooling. Store them in airtight containers.
