Every one loves the sweet cookies or biscuits but there are many who equally devour the savory version too..I fall among the later category & so love these biscuits more than the sweet ones.These biscuits are real flavorful ones with all spices and herbs.Though I always had these from stores as a kid never thought to try these,but now when I tried these they are much more tastier than the store brought ones.They have a mildly sweet,spicy and salty taste and are crunchy.To all savory biscuit lovers,this is special treat ,check this out!!
