I know it has been a while since I last wrote my recipe as way too many things are going around at the same time. Excuses apart, and by demand, I have tried to list out the yummy recipe for Nimki (deep-fried flour snacks). It is great to munch around with or without tea.
Makes quite some so you can store in a container for later use once it cools off.
- All Purpose Flour: 2 cups
- Black Cumin Seeds: 2 tsp
- Olive Oil: 1 tbsp
- Salt as per taste
- Water as needed to make a dough
- Vegetable Oil to deep-fry
Optional: You can either add Ajwain or Regular Cumin Seeds if you do not have Black kind
Steps to follow
In a mixer, add 2 cups flour, salt, 2 teaspoons black cumin seeds and 1 tablespoon olive oil and mix well.
Gradually add water to make a dough. You do not want to be too thick or too thin.
Leave aside for 15 minutes.
|Add ingredients to mix well|
|Heat Oil in a Wok|
|Roll the dough flat|
|Cut into small pieces|
Deep-fry small portions at a time and let it fry until it's golden brown. Be sure you turn over often.
Quick Note: In this recipe, we have used Olive Oil which helps not to be that oily as it does when you use regular oil. One of my good friend has suggested this advice long back and I still follow it.
|Drain excess oil using a strainer|
