I have always seen this biscuits on our family’s Diwali trays since forever.
Last year I attempted to make them last minute. They were funny shaped , some were burnt, some were raw and some were perfect lol.
This year, I rolled them out wafer thin and invested in tongs to flip them every couple of seconds.
I asked my parents what the significance was of this biscuit, but they were lost for words… apparently it is just a biscuit like any other Indian biscuit and you can shape it, which ever way you like.
I prefer circles.
1 ½ x cups cake flour.
Pinch of salt
1 x tbsp. corn flour.
8 x tsp sugar.
5 x tsp sesame seeds.
½ x cup + 3 x tbsp. water.
Mix all the ingredients together in a bowl, except the water.
Add the water a little at a time, till a soft dough is formed.
Turn out onto a floured surface and knead.
Roll out till wafer thin.
Using a circle cook cutter, cut out rounds.
Deep fry in hot oil, till lightly golden brown… becareful as these biscuits cool they become darker in colour.
