According to wiki it is named after the last Asaf Jahi ruler of Hyderabad State, Mir Osman Ali Khan. The biscuits were first baked on the demand of the last Nizam of Hyderabad, Mir Osman Ali Khan, who wanted a snack that was a little sweet and a little salty. These are soft, crunchy and melt in mouth cookies.
