I am always happy to find something crispy to munch with my tea in the evening after work. So I make sure I prepare few snacks over the weekend so I can enjoy it for the rest of the week. Many people use all-purpose flour and gram flour but I have used half of whole wheat flour, half of all-purpose flour with gram flour this time and it came out nice and crispy.
Besan, (gram flour)- 1 cup
Whole wheat flour- 1/2 cup
All purpose four- 1/2 cup
Fine semolina- 2 Tbsp
oil- 4 Tbsp
Salt- 1 1/4 tsp
Red chilli flakes- 1 1/4 tsp
Cumin seeds or carom seeds( ajwain)- 1/4 tsp
water- 1/2 cup or as needed
Oil to fry
Mix all the ingredients by adding little water at a time, make it into a soft dough. Rest the dough for 10-15 minutes in a damp cloth or paper towel. Knead the dough for 2 minutes and divide into 4 equal parts.
Mean while heat the oil in a pan over medium heat.
Roll the dough into 9 inch circles which are a little less than 1/4 inch thick.
Prick the flattened dough with fork all over so it does not puff while frying.
Cut them into 3 inch long pieces or into a shape that you want.
Make sure the oil is hot enough and add the paare’s into the frying pan just enough so you can turn them and fry all of them equally. Fry until they turn golden brown on both sides and allow it to cool. Munch it with your hot favorite drink!
