Surti Butter or Batasa or Jeera butter biscuit are a popular tea time snack sold in most bakeries or Irani tea houses in India. These are small, crisp,dried bread buns (or savoury cookies) with a light texture. The rich cookies are a great accompaniment to Indian masala Chai or go well with soups. Re-hydrated with water they are also a great substitute for Dahi vada.
For best results, it is best to measure the ingredients in grams as suggested in the recipe. I have given approximate conversions for those who wish to use alternate measurements.
My cookies (as you see in the above photograph) turned out jumbo size. You can make them smaller (about the size of a lime)
