Ingredients required: Maida/All-purpose flour - 1 cup Ghee - 1 tbsp Salt to taste Ajwain(carom seeds) - 2 tsp Chilled/cold water to knead the dough Oil for deep frying How to make namak para: 1. Add flour, ajwain, salt, and ghee in a wide bowl. Mix with your fingertips until all ingredients combine and resemble a breadcrumb-like texture. 2. Gradually add chilled water and mix until you get a soft and smooth dough. Keep aside covered for about 15 minutes. 3. Meanwhile, heat oil in a wide pan for deep frying. 4. Divide the dough into equal portions. 5. Take a portion and roll it into a thin circle. Dust flour as and when needed. Roll it as thin as possible. 6. Using the cutter(you can use your pizza cutter or a simple knife, too), cut first vertically, then horizontally to form small diamonds. Carefully separate them and make them ready. 7. To check if the oil is at the correct temperature, first pinch a tiny portion of dough, and add it to the oil if it rises to the top immediately, then the oil is at the correct temperature…else heat the oil for a few more seconds. Now gently gather the diamonds and drop them sprinkled. 8. Cook on medium-low flame and flip them for even cooking. Deep fry till golden brown and drain in tissue paper to absorb the excess oil. Repeat the process for the remaining dough. 9. Drain them on kitchen tissue paper and allow them to cool. Once cooled completely, store in an airtight container.
