Namak Paare

Savoury crispies made out of flour, and stored
Recipe By : Niru Gupta
Type: Vegetarian Serving: 200gms (approx) Cooking Time: 1 hour


  • 2 cups refined flour (Maida)
  • tsp thymol seeds (Ajwain)
  • 1 tsp salt or to taste
  • cup (60 g) clarified butter (ghee)
  • Cold water to mix
  • Oil for deep-frying


  • Mix the thymol seeds, salt and flour together and rub the clarified butter in lightly so that the mixture resembles breadcrumbs.
  • Knead into stiff dough with cold water.

  • Cover dough and set to rest in a cool place for at least 15 minutes.

  • Roll out dough into a cm/1/8 thick sheet. Prick the sheet with a fork all over the surface, and cut into strips of desired size.

  • Heat the oil in a kadahi till a piece of dough dropped in rises to the top at once. Then, put in as many strips as will fit in comfortably. Turn once, and lower heat to medium.

  • Fry till light brown on both sides. Lift out and place on absorbent paper. Fry the rest similarly, increasing heat before adding a fresh lot.

  • Cool and store in an airtight container.

  • Currently 5/5 Stars.
