Diamond Cuts Recipe

Diamond cuts are a traditional Kerala sweet snack that can be stowed for a few days. These diamond cuts are crunchy, crispy, and sugar syrup coated snacks. These are available in most Kerala bakeries and are also called maida biscuits in some places. Do you know why they're called diamond cuts? They got their title from the diamond figure they were carved into. There are multiple methods to create diamond cuts; some add eggs while others do not. However, the addition of eggs provides an incredible, almost bakery-like flavour and taste. "Egg haters" can prepare them without eggs too. Some people choose the traditional cardamon flavour, but egg haters can also use vanilla.
