What’s better than a cup of tea? I cup of tea served with a plate of buttery, melt-in-you-mouth shortbread, subtly spiced with the flavours of chai masala. I use ground rice in this recipe to achieve the distinctively sandy, crumbly texture of shortbread. You could use fine semolina instead of ground rice for the same crumb effect. Use the best quality butter you can manage as you can really taste the difference.
