    Atta Biscuit - Wholesome & Tasty.

    Atta - 250 gms

    Ghee - 125 gms

    Sugar - 150 gms

    Milk - about 1 tbsp

    Powder the sugar.

    Mix atta, ghee & sugar thoroughly.

    Add very little milk just enough to hold the dough.

    You may not be able to roll it comfortably with a roller, but you should be able to pat it well with the hand as thin as you can.

    Cut into desired shapes & bake at 350 deg till golden brown.

    Cool thoroughly & store airtight.

    Sorry for the dealy, AGR !

    Since I was planning to go to Vivek's, I thought I will have a look at the O T G s & write to you. I find Morphy Richard's quite good. There are 3 sizes. Depending on her requirement, she can select the size. The other one is Sunflame.
    Love & regards,
    Chithra.
