  1. This has become our new favourite snack at home. So easy to make and tasty as well. My sister in law is gluten allergic, so I made these for her by replacing wheat flour with rice flour and they still came out perfect. In fact, she liked it so much that I made two more batches for her to take along with her! Thank you so much for this gem of a recipe!

    1. Hi Amar deep,
