Preparation has been divided into 2 steps; 
1)   Bake it as a cake (with a slight change of ingredients and their quantity); 
2)  By cutting out the rectangular strips, these are baked twice. Leaving a Perfect with crispy and Golden looks.

I tried these for the first time, but trust me guys it turned out so well more than my expectations.
