Easy Pissy recipe of Jeera biscuits / Cookies

Around two years back, first time, I tried my hands in baking. Before that, I occasionally bake cakes but never tried anything more than cakes.

But after I purchased my OTG (Oven Toaster Grill) then I thought, why not trying to bake cookies & bread. Initially, it was not easy to nail success recipe of perfect cookies.  But after a few unsuccessful attempts, I have nailed the key to bake perfect biscuits / cookies.
