Pistachio Biscuits for the Evening Cuppa!

In India, TEA is considered as the real hero of the day… 80% of Indians swear on it and their morning do not start until and unless they gulp down a cup just after they wake up…

The tradition also calls for some crisp snacks along with tea and the first favorite is always a biscuit… Yes it is! The moment that crispy baked biscuit is dipped into the tea and gulped down quickly, we, the Indians, feel that we are on the seventh heaven… 🙂 But what when you know that the biscuit you want to gulp down is baked fresh at home and that too with more healthy ingredients? … The joy is doubled!!! 😀


Presenting my very own version of Pistachio biscuits, which are baked afresh using healthy ingredients like Multi-grain flour, Gram-flour and lots of Pistachios. Cooked in 20 mins, these biscuits are must have for every evening affair with Tea! Let’s have a look on the recipe:

Serves: 20 biscuits

Preparation time: 10 mins

Baking time: 25 mins


  • 1 cup Multi-grain flour
  • 1/2 cup Gram – flour
  • 1/2 cup Oil ( Vegetable oil or Ghee)
  • 1/2 cup Grinded sugar ( Mix of white and brown will be recommended)
  • 1/4 tsp Baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp Baking powder
  • 2 tbsp Milk
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped Pistachios
  • 1/2 tsp powdered cardamon powder



  • Pre-heat oven to 180 degrees.
  • Take multi-grain flour, gram flour, baking soda, baking powder in a bowl.
  • Mix well using a spatula.
  • Mix oil, powdered sugar, cardamon powder in a bowl and mix well.
  • Add the flour mix and milk and knead a dough.
  • Dough should be soft enough. Add more milk if required.
  • Now make 18-20 small balls of the dough. ( Make sure that balls are small enough as they will expand while baking.)
  • Roll the balls over the plate of finely chopped pistachios.
  • Put parchment paper over a baking tray and arrange the dough balls over it.
  • There should be a proper gap between the balls so that they have enough space for expansion.
  • Bake for 20-25 mins. Let it turn golden in color.
  • Once done, take it out of the oven and let it cool.
  • It will turn crisp once cooled.
  • Store in a cellophane wrapper.
  • Enjoy with your evening cuppa every time! 🙂
