Poppy seeds lend their distinctive flavor and pop-pop-pop texture to these delightful biscuits.
1/2 cup canola oil
2 large onions grated over a dish, liquid reserved
3 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
1/2 cup poppy seeds
2 tablespoons water
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon sugar
Beat the eggs in a large bowl. Stir in the oil and the grated onions with their liquid. Sift in the flour, then add the poppy seeds, water, baking powder, salt, and sugar. Stir the ingredients just until they are moistened but not completely smooth. (Do not over mix the batter, or it will become stretchy and your biscuits will be tough.)
Drop the mixture by the tablespoonful onto the prepared baking sheets. Bake until golden brown, 10-15 minutes. Serve warm.
