Whole Wheat Cumin Biscuits, Eggless Jeera Biscuits

Cumin Biscuits Recipe
Cumin Cookies were the first few cookie recipes that I tried in my oven and succeeded in my first attempt itself.The taste of the cookies still lingers that I wanted to bake them again but this time as biscuits with a crispier texture as the major difference I find between cookies and biscuits is in the texture.These biscuits again were on an experiment mode but glad that it turned out to be a keeper recipe.You can even use this as a base recipe for plain whole wheat cookies, just add any flavouring you like.
