  1. Mam, butter is 3 or 4 tbsp? Also I m not sure how to measure butter. Biscuit came hard for me

  2. Can we do it in pressure cooker?

  3. You can convert gms into tbsp in google search. it should be more than 4tbsp. Beat the butter well it should become light and airy then only the biscuit will come out well. Since it is made out of wheat you cannot expect as light as maida. Keep trying. It came out well only on my 3rd attempt. Hope this helps. Thank you.
