Savory Maida Biscuits – Diamond Cuts

I have a lot of childhood memories associated with this savory snack. My Ammamma and Amma would prepare huge quantities of Maida Biscuits (the name they go by at home) and store them in large containers. Back from school, we would head straight to the pantry and grab a plateful of maida biscuits and savor them like there was no tomorrow. Maida chips, maida biscuits, diamond cuts, maida squares, khara biscuits, whatever the name, they were extremely popular among us kids and friends.
