Sweet maida biscuits | Easy Diwali snacks

Sweet maida biscuits from my mom’s kitchen she prepare it during my childhood in the occasion of Diwali. It is very easy snack that any one can prepare it in a short span of time. This sweet is made with only with maida and sugar and tastes awesome. My daughter likes this very much so even toddlers can have this wonderful snack. And most of my Christian friends prepare it during Christmas but they people add egg for softness of the biscuits.
