Spicy Diamond Cuts | Savory Aata Biscuits | Tea Time Snack

Spicy Diamond Cuts, a crunchy and tasty snack made from the aata/ wheat flour. It's one of our favorite tea time snack and can be easily prepared with the available ingredients in the pantry. Already I had a recipe of spicy diamond cuts made with maida/all purpose flour. This one that i'm sharing today is prepared with aata. ST is very fond of this snack, when he was a school goer, he with his sister & brother used to make this as after school snack and he recollects that they only used aata to make this snack. So depends on the mood, i used to make either with aata or maida. Both tastes equally good on its own way. If you're looking for quick tea time snack, do give it a try. It's crunchy and pair well with a cup of tea and also stays well for a week or more in air tight container.
