Namkeen / Nimki also called as Sankarpali or Papdi is a very popular snack at home. My older one is a major fan of Chaats. Be it Pani Puri, Bhel Puri, Ragada Pattice or the humble Dahi Papdi Chaat - they are all welcome as a snack or as dinner :). So I tried to make a healthier version of the chaat and the little one wanted different shapes (as usual) and so I ended up baking these beauties and both the kids were happy to get their way. As I always say Win-Win situation!!
So for Day 3 BM #25, I am posting this for the letter N.
Whole Wheat Flour 1 1/2 cup
Baking powder 1 tsp.
Baking Soda a pinch
Ghee/Clarified Butter 2 Tbsp (melted)
Salt to taste
Red Chilli Powder as needed (optional)
Cumin seeds(Jeera) 1 tsp (crushed)
Cold water 1/2 cup or as needed
Method Of Preparation -
Sieve the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Add in the crushed cumin seeds as well.
Rub in the ghee into the flour to resemble bread crumbs. Knead into a stiff dough adding as much cold water as needed.
Set aside the covered dough for a few minutes.
Preheat the oven to 375 F and line the baking tray with parchment paper.
Divide the dough into 6 portions and roll each of the portion into a thick sheet.
Using a pizza cutter or any other sharp object, cut into diamond shapes and spread them in a single layer on the baking tray.
Repeat the process until the dough is done.
Bake for 20 min and flip each of them and bake for a few more minutes (upto 5 min).
Enjoy them upon cooling.
