Namakpara is a very popular savoury snack, served in every household at various occassions.

Required ingredients

  • 2 cups maida (refined flour )
  • ½ cup vegetable oil or shortening
  • 1 tsp salt
  • Cold water to knead the dough
  • Oil to deep fry

Directions & How to

  • Mix together maida and salt in a large bowl and sift through once, so that salt is distributed evenly.
  • Add oil and mix well with your fingers. Rub the flour between your palms in portions, till it starts to resemble bread crumbs.
  • Now add cold water and knead stiff dough.{ This dough will take less water as it already has oil for binding}. Cover the dough and keep it in the fridge for ½ an hour.
  • Make 4 equal sized smooth balls of the dough. Roll out a big roti on a lightly floured surface. Cut into small diamond shapes. To lift the pieces run a flat knife underneath it.
  • Heat oil in a wok and add namakparas and fry till golden and crisp. {The oil should not be smoking hot}.
