Ingredients

  • 150 g raisins
  • 225 g flour self raising
  • 125 g sugar
  • 125 g lard
  • 70 g oats Ready Brek type
  • 1/2 tsp garam masala

Instructions

  • Place all dry ingredients in a bowl, cut the lard into small cubes and add it in mixing with fingertips until you have a breadcrumb consistency.
  • 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 4 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!)
