Long ago I got this recipe in a Cookery show by Chellam Gopalakrishnan, I love all her recipes, from the way she describes the making of the dish, and one could feel her love, dedication towards food. I started baking frequently only after watching her cookery programs. This one was my family’s favourite biscuit from my hands. I bake this very often, since it’s very easy to bake and needs very less ingredients. A perfect tea time snack. Let us move on to the recipe…
As it’s Friday, I am taking it to Fiesta Friday #79 hosted by Angie@thenovicegarderner.
