Tunisian savoury aperitif biscuits

Prep:

Cook:

Serves:

    Cakis are tiny savoury biscuits - perfect with a Purim drink. You can add all sorts of things to the basic recipe to flavour them such as green olives, anise seeds, sun-dried tomatoes, pickled cucumbers, nuts and anchovies. I have used olives, capers, jalapeno peppers and nuts.

    Makes: 180 approx
    Preparation: 15 minutes
    Cooking: 15 – 20 minutes

    INGREDIENTS
    For the basic biscuits:
    200ml water
    200ml sunflower oil
    1 large egg
    Salt and pepper
    450g self-raising flour, plus 50g for dusting
    Flavourings:
    150g black olives pitted drained and chopped
    50g capers in brine, drained
    60g jalapeno peppers, drained
    150g mixed salted nuts

    METHOD

    Heat your oven to 160°C and line a couple of large baking trays with baking parchment.

    Mix all the ingredients except the flour together.

    Add the flour slowly mixing to form a compact ball. You may not need it all.

    Divide the ball into four quarters.

    Add the olives to one quarter, capers to the next, peppers to the next and nuts to the last one.

    Roll them into long sausages of about 2cm diameter, and cut them into 2cm cubes.

    Cook in the oven for 15 - 20 minutes on the prepared baking sheets.
