My daughter is a fussy and slow eater.... but whenever I make kokis she eats them quickly and she loves them any day of the week. My whole family loves kokis too with curd or pickle .

Grate some ginger to the ingredients. Instead of cumin seeds, put shahi jeera, which is so much flavorful. Instead if kneading dough with water, use milk. Serve with plain yoghurt with salt and black pepper.
