How to make bean biscuit using piping bag?

The easy way to fill a piping bag is to take a tall water glass and line it with the piping bag. If you don’t have a piping bag, Ziploc bag works just fine. To use ziploc, place the bag into the glass one sided, meaning one bottom tip of the bag is touching the bottom of the water glass.

When the batter is ready, pour the batter into the bag. Remove the bag from the glass and make a very small pea-sized cut at the tip of the bag. This helps only a small amount of batter to drop on the trays. Keep dropping batter onto the tray while gently squeezing the bag at the top. Don’t forget to leave at least quarter inch gap between each drop.

Why to sift the flour twice to make Kerala style egg biscuits?

When the dry ingredients are sifted they make air pockets. To make them super light and fluffy it is advisable to sift them at least twice. Thrice even better. When mixing the dry ingredients into the egg mixture, fold the flour gently to maintain the air in the batter.

How to store these fun bakery style biscuits?

When the biscuits are ready, let them rest on the tray itself. Once completely cooled, transfer them to an air tight container. They never last long but if they do, they can be stored for up to 4 days in a cool dry place.

If you love fun snacks like me, you should try the spicy cheese crackers or the crispy cardamom cookies which are all my favorite snacks for the weekend.
