BM #91 Week 3 Day 2 - 

After the brownies which I posted yesterday, here are some savory scones for the non-sweet lovers. I love scones when I can make them with wheat flour and less fat and healthy ingredients. Better still if they are savory.

I made these a few months back and I cannot recollect the recipe source. 

Recipe Source - unknown
Ingredients - 

Whole Wheat Flour 1 1/2 cups
Salt 1/2 tsp
Baking Powder 2 tsp
Green Chili Paste 1 tsp (or as needed)
Coriander Leaves, finely chopped 2 Tbsp
Zucchini , grated 1 cup (I medium sized one)
Olive Oil 2 -3 Tbsp
Yogurt / Greek Yogurt 1/4 cup + more if needed
Fried Onions / Caramelized Onions 2 Tbsp 

Method Of Preparation -

In a mixing bowl, sift the whole wheat flour and baking powder. Add in salt and green chili paste. Rub in the olive oil.

Preheat the oven to 400 F.

Dump in the grated zucchini and chopped coriander leaves. Mix well.

Gradually add yogurt to the flour and gently mix to get a sticky dough. 

Don't knead at all. Just gather the sticky dough and oil your fingers to pat the dough into a circular shape (about 1/2 inch thick). 

[Oops, I forgot to add the fried onions. If fried onions are not in the pantry. Onions can be caramelized in a pan or totally omitted.]

I patted the fried onions on the scones.

Best way to do it is to line a baking sheet with parchment paper and transfer the dough onto it. Pat it with oiled fingers and slice into 8 wedges.

Bake it for 20-22 minutes until a tester comes out clean. Remove onto a wire rack.

Slice and serve warm with a dollop of butter.
