SPICY DIAMOND CUTS
Savoury diamonds cuts | Spicy diamond cuts , generally my mom makes to put in the SOUTH INDIAN MIXTURE . But i am a great fan of this spicy diamond cuts we call as spicy biscuits, so my amma makes a separate batch of this only for me and makes another batch to add in the mixture. I like the sweet version of this diamond cuts too and i have posted a bit different version of  that sweet biscuits called as Shankarpali which i have posted last year.
