Osmania Biscuits II

As I was munching on them, it dawned on me that the one I had made some time back, tasted very different. Just to make sure, I enquired with my friend Ravi, who is my to- go person when it comes to Andhra food. During our discussion, I realised that I was right. According to him, the Osmania Biscuits were soft and crumbly with a touch of sweetness and saltiness. There !! My new challenge !! If not nail the recipe, I had to come close to it.

My first attempt was relatively close but I felt it needed some tweaking. I can’t vouch that this one is a perfect recipe, but it definitely is worth a shot. Why don’t you try it out and let me know ?
