Calories: 2716kcal


  • 120 g raisins
  • 225 g self raising flour
  • 125 g sugar
  • 120 ml oil
  • 1/2 tsp garam masala


  • Place all dry ingredients in a bowl, pour in the oil mixing with fingertips. Then add enough water to make a dough which comes cleanly away from the sides of the bowl and which isn’t sticky to the touch. (approx 2 x 15ml tablespoons).
  • Roll out onto a floured surface to 4mm thick, and use a biscuit cutter to form biscuits. After you have cut lots of shapes, squidge the leftovers together, re roll and cut out more until all dough is used up.
  • Bake at gas mark 6 for 8 mins with this sized cookie cutter (We made 41 biscuits, so if you’ve made lots less, add a few mins cooking time!)
  • Make this sized batch twice in the month.
