This is by far one of the easiest homemade snack recipes I have been taught. My mom always used to make these during festivals, marriages, birthdays, or whenever we wanted them! These never fail to remind me of my childhood. Whenever I make these in my home, they never seem to last more than 3 or 4 days, but they are easy enough to make so I can replenish the supply pretty quickly. I always turn to this recipe on those dark and dingy rainy days and it never fails to cheer up the whole family. I will give you fair warning that these are quite addictive and you may find yourself making these again in a couple of days. Here goes the recipe...
- Whole Wheat Flour - 1 cup
- Semolina (Sooji) - 2 tbsp
- Cumin Powder - 1/4 tsp
- Ajwain - 1/4 tsp
- Chili Powder - 1/4 tsp
- Salt - to taste
- Melted Butter - 2 tbsp
- Vegetable Oil - for deep frying
- Mix whole wheat flour, semolina, cumin powder, ajwain powder, chili powder, salt, and melted butter in a large bowl.
- Slowly add water to the mixture until it forms a ball of dough
- Make small balls of dough the size of a lemon and roll out each ball on a floured surface like a chapathi
- Cut the rolled out dough into diamond shapes (cut diagonally in each way)
- Heat up the vegetable oil to a boil in a vessel.
- Slowly add the diamond cuts and wait until they rise to the surface.
- Remove the diamond chips from the oil and place in a paper towel lined bowl.
- Wait till the paper absorbs the excess oil and the chips cool.
- Store in an airtight jar and enjoy!
