Tips (ಸಲಹೆ):
 * All Purpose flour can be replaced with Wheat flour but Cookies prepared using All Purpose flour is tastier
 * Instead of Ghee, Butter can be used but Cookies prepared using Ghee is crunchier
 * Adding Vanilla Essence, Cardamom powder, crushed nuts enhances the taste & flavour  
 * ಮೈದಾ ಹುಡಿಯ ಬದಲಿಗೆ ಗೋಧಿ ಹುಡಿಯನ್ನು ಬಳಸಬಹುದು ಆದರೆ ಮೈದಾ ಹುಡಿಯಲ್ಲಿ ಮಾಡಿದ ಬಿಸ್ಕತ್ ಹೆಚ್ಚು ರುಚಿಯಾಗಿರುತ್ತದೆ
 * ತುಪ್ಪದ ಬದಲು, ಬೆಣ್ಣೆಯನ್ನು ಬಳಸಬಹುದು, ಆದರೆ ತುಪ್ಪದಲ್ಲಿ ಮಾಡಿದ ಬಿಸ್ಕತ್ ಹೆಚ್ಚು ಗರಿ-ಗರಿಯಾಗಿ ಬರುತ್ತದೆ
 * ತುಂಡು ಮಾಡಿದ ಬೀಜಗಳು, ವೆನಿಲ್ಲಾ ಎಸ್ಸೆನ್ಸ್ ಅಥವಾ ಏಲಕ್ಕಿ ಹುಡಿಯನ್ನು ಹಾಕುವುದರಿಂದ ಬಿಸ್ಕತ್ತಿನ ರುಚಿ ಹಾಗು ಪರಿಮಳ ಹೆಚ್ಚಾಗುತ್ತದೆ
