Savory Carrot Scones

I am back with BM#23, after yet another unintentional blogging break I was on. During the last few weeks, either I was cooking the mundane stuff or the ones that have been already posted and so did not find a reason to update the blog. Even Diwali didn't tempt me as my husband had brought a large box of mithai from the grocery store. I, being the sole consumer of those sweets didn't have any intention of adding extra calories in the name of blogging. I told the same to my sister who mentioned that she kept checking my blog hoping to see me post some sweets and savories during Diwali.  Nothing interesting was happening in my kitchen and hence the break. :)
These days I seem to blog for the sole purpose of participating in Valli's blogging marathon. :) Not complaining though since I could come with at least a dozen posts a month in the process. For the first week of BM#23, I am going to post under the theme carrots and these simple, savory scones inspired from Tamalapaku are going to be my Day 1 post. I made slight changes to the original recipe and they came out decent. A nice accompaniment to your evening cup of tea / coffee.

1 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup wheat flour
2 tsp baking powder
Salt to taste
1/2 tsp chilli powder
1 tsp cumin seeds
3/4 cup milk + 2 tsp apple cider vinegar
1 cup grated carrot
2 Tbsp minced cilantro
2 Tbsp melted butter / oil

* Combine milk and vinegar in a bowl and keep aside.
* Preheat the oven to 400 deg F.
* Sieve together flours and baking powder in a mixing bowl. Add cumin, salt, chili powder, carrot and cilantro.
* Add the milk - vinegar mixture and also butter to the bowl. Don't knead the mixture. Just gently combine the ingredients to form a sticky dough. 
* Line a baking sheet with parchment paper / aluminium foil. Transfer the dough ball to the baking sheet and pat into a disc of about 1/2 - 3/4 inch thick using oiled fingers. Slice the disc into eight wedges.
* Bake for about 20 - 30 minutes or until done. (The original recipe mentioned about 15 minutes baking. I baked for 20 minutes and it was underdone. I baked for about 10 minutes more at 375 deg F.)
* Remove them after they are done. Brush with melted butter and serve warm.
