  • 1/4 cup oil or ghee (I used refined oil)
  • 1/4 cup + 2tbsp water or as required
  • Oil for frying

Instructions

  • Collect all the required ingredients.
  • Take maida in a mixing bowl.
  • Add carom seeds, black pepper powder, salt, and 1/4 cup oil.
  • Crumble the oil with dough well. Rub with your fingertips to get a breadcrumb-like consistency.
  • Now add water slowly and start to knead the dough.
  • Knead the dough well, until form stiff and tight dough. The dough should not be soft, but firm.
  • Keep the dough aside covered for 20 minutes.

making namak pare :

  • After keeping the dough for 20 mins. Knead the dough again to get a smooth texture.
  • Divide the dough into 6 equal parts and make balls of it.
  • Take one ball and roll it into a slightly thick disc on a rolling board.
  • Roll into a disc neither too thin nor too thick.
  • Take a knife/pizza cutter and cut the circle in long rectangles or diamonds or shape of your choice.
  • Remove the diamond-shaped patterns and separate each piece.

frying namak para :

  • Heat oil for frying in a kadai and heat oil to fry.
  • To check oil, take a small piece of dough and drop it in the oil. If it slowly comes up, then the oil is hot enough. Too much heat oil is not needed to fry namakpare.
  • Drop the namak pare into the hot oil.
  • Fry them on medium heat for the first few minutes and then turn the heat to low to allow them to cook from the inside.
  • Flip them when they are halfway cooked to ensure even browning from both sides.
  • Take them out with the help of perforated spoon once they turn Brown in color. Keep in mind that these will continue to brown a bit even after taking out from oil.
  • Drain them on a kitchen towel to remove excess oil.
  • Fry rest of the namak pare in batches till you get the desired color.
  • Serve them immediately or store them for later use. You can serve the namak para with tea or coffee.
