Namak Pare Recipe

INGREDIENTS 1 cup all-purpose flour (maida) 1 cup atta (wheat flour) 2 tbsp sooji (semolina or rava) ½ tsp Catch black pepper powder 1 tsp sesame seeds ¼ tsp carom seeds (ajwain) Salt to taste 2 tbsp oil + more for deep frying Water

Making the dough

  1. Take maida, atta, sooji, salt, Catch black pepper powder, sesame seeds and ajwain in a bowl, and mix them well.
  2. Add oil to this flour mix and rub it in till it gets a crumbly texture.
  3. Now start adding little water in batches and knead the dough. Make it semi-soft, similar to paratha dough. Cover the dough and let it rest for 15 minutes.
Making namak pare
  1. After 15 minutes, knead the dough again. Divide it into two equal portions.
  2. Flatten it out between your palms.
  3. Start rolling it into a big circle.
  4. While rolling, heat oil in a pan over medium heat for frying.
  5. Cut the dough into diamond shapes using a knife.
  6. Once the oil is hot enough, add a few pieces of cut namak pare in it. Flip them halfway through for even frying.
  7. Fry both sides till they become golden brown and crispy.
  8. Remove them from oil and put them on tissue papers, so that it absorbs the excess oil.
  9. Let it cool completely for about 20 minutes.
  10. Once cooled, it’s ready to be consumed with a steaming cup of tea. You can even store them in airtight containers for further consumption.
Helpful tips while preparing namak pare:
  1. While frying the namak pare, do not overcrowd them in the pan.
  2. You can even add a pinch of baking soda while making the dough, to make them even crispier.
  3. You can add ghee instead of oil to make it yummier.
