Rusk is a type of hard, dry biscuit or twice-baked bread. It is sometimes referred to as a "biscuit rusk" or "tea biscuit". It is made by cutting a loaf of bread into slices, then baking or drying them until they become hard and crisp. Rusks are often served with tea or coffee, and can be used to make pudding or a quick shahi tukda. Cardamom flavoured rusks are popular in India.
