It’s unlikely that the Baker’s Gold delivery guy from the movie will deliver you a package of milk rusk . Varanasi is just not around the corner.  If you search hard enough you will find some milk rusk biscuits in your local shop too. But let’s go the Indian way.  Check this original Punjabi Milk Rusk version from a certain Sumeet. Honestly, we don’t know Sumeet. We found it on the net somewhere. If you’re not happy with it find some more yourself right here, here and here.)
