Filter the plain flour with a fine mesh sieve. Mix the flour, sugar, nutmeg, sea salt, powdered milk, and milo in a glass bowl with a silicone spatula.
Make a well in the middle to put the egg, salted butter, and water.
Knead the batter with your hands until it turns into dough.
Use a dough cutter to slice the dough into half. Press the dough with your hand and roll it out with a rolling pin. Then, use a pizza cutter or knife to slice it to your preferred shape and size. Arrange the dough pieces on a baking tray lined with parchment paper. Place it in a preheated oven at 150°C for 13 minutes. Then, allow it to cool. Finally, transfer them into a glass jar to store!
