Biscuits are baked then whats unusual about them, its a paniyaram which is baked as biscuits. Few days back we friends were making sweets and prepared the dough to make Hajur Paniyaram one of our traditional sweet, but accidentally beated the eggs and sugar in mixer. the result we couldn't fry them, with such a heap of dough in our hands, then an idea came across us, shaped it and baked them Voila!! delicious, crisp and yummy biscuits. Will give the fried version of this recipe later friends, Since it is not fried , it has less calories so can have it guilt free! Lets move on to the recipe:
