Namak Para/ crispy small nimki


2 cups all purpose flour
2 tbsp desi ghee/ butter
1 tsp nigella seeds/ carrom seeds (whatever u want to put)
salt to taste
water to knead the dough
enough oil for frying


Take a big bowl. Mix ghee & Flour, nigella/ carom seeds.  Start mixing with your hands until it looks crumbled.
Add water as needed & a firm but smooth dough. Cover it with a damp cloth.
Let it rest for 10-15 minutes.

Make small lemon sized balls. Roll them in to 9” circles. Now cut into 1/2" strips lengthwise & then into 2" length across with the help of a pizza cutter or knife.

Heat oil to medium heat. Add the strips & fry them both sides on medium flame until golden in color.

 Don’t fry on high heat otherwise they will become soft. Cool & Store them in air-tight containers.

Enjoy with hot hot tea/ coffee.
