I was stumped when it came to letter Y, as it was to be a baked dish. I was browsing all the baking books I had and finally settled with the one that Vaishali gave us. Though it had loads of eggless bakes, the sort of savory bake I was looking for, was hard to find. Then I saw that there was a savory biscuit with yogurt and then I searched the net as well. Finally came across this recipe
that uses yogurt and knew that many others would also be doing it with Yogurt.
Anyway, it was a stage when I was not having enough patience to think or plan more. So I settled with this and got a load full of small biscuits that were buttery and savory. It makes a good pair with tea when you serve it for evening snacks.
We are on the last but one letter and I wonder how quickly the days have gone and thankfully everybody was able to manage the entire marathon. And what a beautiful collection it has been.
I am planning to create a new page with just ABC Cooking Dishes from all, so check it out when it is published.
All purpose flour – 2 cups
Baking powder – 2 tsp

How to bake the Yoghurt Biscuits
Beat the yoghurt with enough water to get a pouring consistency.
Preheat oven to 200 C
Grease an 8 x 8 pan.
Stir dry ingredients together.
Cut in shortening into flour mix and crumble well. Gently stir in yogurt mixture until a sticky dough is formed (do not overwork the dough).
Place dough on floured surface. Dust top with flour and gently pat dough with hands until 1/2 in thick.
Cut into 8-10 rounds. Place in pan.
Brush with shortening. Bake 15 minutes.
Turn out of pan 5 minutes after removing from over.
Cover with a tea towel and serve.
The original recipe shows that the biscuits are rolled out very big and it really puffs up. However, I kept it small.
