Savory Snack....Namak Para

  • 2 cups All Purpose flour (plain flour or maida)
  • 1/2  cup sooji (semolina )
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ajwain(carom seeds)
  • 4 tablespoons oil
  • 3/4 cup lukewarm water (use as needed)
  • Oil to fry

Mix all the ingredients except the water.
Add the water little at a time, kneading into a firm dough.

Divide the dough into about 2 equal parts.

 Take each part of the dough and make a flat ball shape. Roll them into 28-30 inch circles.
Cut diagonally into strips.. .
the strips can be thinner or smaller in shape...

  1. Heat the oil in a frying pan on medium heat.
  2. The frying pan should have atleast 1 1/2 inch of oil.To check if the oil is ready, put a small piece of dough in the oil. The dough should make the oil sizzle and come up slowly.
  3. Fry a few namak paras at a time. Make sure to place just enough to cover the frying oil.
 Fry the namak parass until both sides are a light golden-brown.
 Take it out on a kitchen towel.

cool and serve

Namak para can be stored for a couple of months in airtight containers.
