Even elders who do not usually binge on biscuits are sure to love these Jeera Biscuits, which have a very nice flavour and appetising aroma of roasted cumin seeds.

The buttery aroma and crispness of the biscuits make them a hit with kids too, making it an all-round success! Keep some aside for yourself or you might not even get to taste it, because the whole batch will disappear within minutes!

Do not get worried if the biscuits are soft when taken out of the oven – they will become crisp after they cool down.

You can also try other yummy biscuits like the Hyderabadi Osmania Biscuit or Karachi Biscuits .
