Barley & Spring Onion Biscuits

I love savoury biscuits that too along with herbs, i often do these sort of savoury biscuits eventhough we have sweet tooth..This time i tried out some savoury biscuits combining barley flour along with all purpose flour and prepared this cute looking savoury biscuits with finely chopped spring onions spiced up with pepper powder, flax seeds, nigella seeds and few red chilly flakes..This biscuits  tastes excellent when they are served with cream cheese topped with some oven roasted bellpepper chunks or else with guacamole y not either with hummus as an appetizier or either simply with a cup of coffee for snacks..We love it..

Barley & Spring Onions Biscuits

1cup All purpose flour
1/2cup Barley flour
1/4cup Spring Onions (chopped finely)
1tbsp Nigella seeds
2tbsp Flax seeds
1/2tsp Red chilly flakes
1/2tsp Pepper powder
2tbsp Olive oil
Salt
1tsp Baking powder

Mix the flours, baking powder, salt, pepper powder, chilly flakes, nigella seeds, flax seeds,spring onions in a bowl, add the olive oil and enough water and knead everything together as soft and smooth dough, keep aside for half an hour..

Preheat the oven to 350F,line a baking sheet over a baking tray..Dust and roll this dough as large dish, cut as any shape as u desire with cookie cutters, arrange the biscuits over the baking sheet and bake for 20-25minutes until the crust turns golden brown..let them cool completely..

Enjoy with cream cheese, guacamole or simply with salted butter.

Love them, they look so mouth watering. I so want to try biscuits, but never did. I think mainly because, my son is not that much into biscuits. But, now I will make them for my little one, may be he will like them even if his older brother doesn't :)
