These jeera biscuits are so tasty and very easy to make. They are filled with aromatic jeera flavour with buttery taste. I baked these biscuits yesterday and served with a glass of milk to my daughters. They really liked them a lot. You know? Now there are only 4 biscuits left in my cookie jar. When you take a bite they just melt in mouth. These biscuits tastes sweet and salty. I hope you will give this a try and let me know how it turned out for you.
