Namakpare one of those wonderful snacks that are appropriate tea time of the day. You had eaten variety of salt snacks and brought from market, but homemade Namakpare or Snacks is somewhat different flavors.
I think it will taste better than market snacks. Here I had given a twist in my recipe. It will give you a different taste.
All propose Flour 1 Cup
Carom Seeds (Ajwain) – 1/4 tsp
Salt – 1/2 tsp
Fortune rice bran oil 1/4 cup
Dry Methi leaves 2 tbs
Chat mashala 1 tsp
Fortune rice bran oil for deep fry
Water as required
Fist sieve the all propose flour. Mix carom seed, salt and oil in the flour. Rub the dry methi leaves in your hand. So that the leave will be powder and smell nice. Mix it in flour. Make a soft dough by adding little bit of water.
Knea the dough for some times and divide into 6 equal portions. Roll the each dough ball into a big circle and cut into small strips or diamonds using a knife or pizza cutter. Heat the oil in a frying pan on medium heat.
The frying pan should be at least 1 ½ 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.
Make sure to place just enough namakpares so you can turn them over easily when frying. Fry the namakpares until both sides are light golden-brown.
Drain them in a tissue paper. Sprinkle chat mashala on top when it is hot. Cool down completely and store in airtight container. It can be stored for one month in airtight containers.
