Prep time: 15 minutes | Cook time: 30 minutes |
- 2 cups plain flour
- Water as needed
- 1/8 cup oil/ghee
- 1 tsp cumin seeds
- 1 tsp carom seeds
- 1tsp chaat masala
- 1 tsp kasuri methi
- 1/4 – 1/2 tsp red chilli powder
- Oil/ghee for both frying and spreading
- Add plain flour, cumin seeds, carom seeds, kasuri methi, chaat masala, chilli powder, salt and ghee to a large mixing bowl and mix with fingers until the flour resembles a crumbly texture
- Add a little water a time and knead into a semi- still dough
- Cover the dough and set it aside for at least 30 minutes
- Pinch the dough and divide them into 12-15 small equal sizes
- Pick one dough ball at a time and roll them into 8-10cm discs then prick all over with a fork
- Smear ghee all over the disc and fold them into a semi circle. Prick the semi circle with fork again
- Smear ghee on the semi circle and fold again to obtain a triangle. Prick the prepared nimki all over and press the corners
- Repeat this process for all the remaining nimki’s.
- Heat oil in a deep pan then gently slide 4 nimki’s at a time into the hot oil
- Deep fry the nimki’s on a low flame to make sure they are fried well between all the layers. This process can take about 8-10 minutes. Drain the fried nimki on a kitchen paper and allow them to cool down.
- Repeat the process for the remaining nimki’s.
- Cool completely and store in an airtight jar
