               I took the basic recipe from Sharmis passions...thanks sharmi. The change i made to this recipe is adding some butter for crispness,using only 1/2 cup of Wheat flour and added a pinch of ajwain.This bake was very special as everytime my parents cook and send us something...it was the other way round with me :)

Note:
  • Refrigerate dough for half-n-hour atleast so that the ingredients are set before baking. i ran out of time so i could not do that while baking these sets.
