I always love making maida biscuits right from childhood. Me and my bro used to help my mom by rolling and cutting them into diamond shapes. The best part I like to do is rolling the cutter to make the diamond shape. My mom has a special spoon especially for this (also for cutting sweet somas-recipe soon!). Its called ‘Somas karandi’. It is made of pithalai, one side with a spoon and other side with a wheel with ridges to make design while it cuts. It will be similar to pizza cutter, only that this is small.
I will post the spicy version, which my mom makes with ginger/garlic and red chilli later. This sweet version is also a bit different from others as we use sugar powder to coat the biscuits instead of adding it to the dough. I love it a lot this way. Simple to make too. So you can try it for this Diwali :)
Ingredients(makes 5-6 cups of the snack)
|Maida/ all purpose flour||2 cup|
|Oil||To deep fry|
Repeat the process for remaining dough. Cool down and store in airtight box. Enjoy as a snack at tea time.
