Spicy diamond cuts

Spicy diamond cuts is popularly known as maida mavu (All purpose flour) biscuit in our family.  My bro and I like this for its teeny-weeny size, shape and obviously for its taste. My mom and grany makes this diamond cuts(both spicy and sweet) as an evening snack for me and my bro.  I learnt this from my mom and grany.  It is very easy to make, tasty and a good nibble.
