Godhi Biscuit | Wheat Biscuit

Godhi Biscuit This is only known & made in some iyengar's houses. This is an old recipe. This tastes like crunchy kobri obbatt.

The story behind the recipe of this biscuit is that my paati (grandmom) and amma used to make this a lot. My paati whenever she would go out on a yatra/tour she used to make this / get it made from my amma and take it with her. She used to have 2 biscuits and a glass of milk. I remember days on such tours when she wouldn’t eat anything else but these. My amma started making this for us (myself and my sister) too. It is a healthy snack.

Somehow I was not confident to post this recipe but one of my blog readers asked about this and hence i thought someone out there knows about this & that prompted me to post this. These days protein/healthy biscuits are very common in the market and this is sort of a old fashioned , no oven baked home-made alternative to that.
