Nimki (Namkeen)



                                                                     
Yields: 8-9 nimkis, Preparation Time: 30 minutes


Ingredients:
1 cup all purpose flour
1/2 tsp Nigella seeds (kalaunji /black onion seeds)
A pinch of sugar
A pinch of baking soda
1 tbsp of Oil to be added to the flour (moyan)
1/2 tsp Salt
Oil for frying
Enough water to knead the dough


Method:
Place all the ingredients in a bowl. Add oil to it and sift the flour thoroughly. Now add little quantity of water at a time to the flour and knead until soft. Cover and set aside for half an hour. Divide the dough into marble sized balls. Roll out thin puris. Make little slits all over the puri. Sprinkle a little flour and half fold, again sprinkle a little flour and fold it into a triangle. Press a black pepper in the middle of the triangle.


                                                      Before frying......     
                 
 Follow the same method for the remaining dough. Heat oil in a deep frying pan. Adjust  the flame to sim and deep fry the nimkis until light brown. Frequently turning them over to avoid over frying. Place them in a paper towel and let them cool. Later on you can store these nimkis in an air tight container.

Frying over low heat is recommended for desired crispiness.
