Happy diwali !!!! May the divine lights of Diwali bring lots of happiness, health and prosperity to all of you !!!
Well you might be wondering what is this dish , actually tried this shape for first time so don't know the name yet for the snack . This shape is actually used for preparing sweet but me and shirish are not big fans of sweet so tried making it like this.It tasted delicious .
Maida/All purpose flour - 1 cup
butter - 1/2 tsp
Red chili powder - 1/2 tsp(add according to taste)
Salt - according to taste
Spring onion - 2 tsp(very finely chopped)
Cilantro - 2 tsp (very finely chopped)
Oil - to fry
Sesame seeds - 2 tsp
water - to need the dough
1.Take a bowl/plate add maida,salt,chili powder,butter,chopped cilantro,sesame seeds ,chopped spring onion mix it .
2.Add water very little at a time and knead the dough softly and keep it aside for 15 min.
3.Take very little amount of dough and make a small ball . With the help of rolling pin roll it and make a circle. Now take a sharp knife and make 3-4 slits by leaving a centimeter on the top and bottom. Carefully fold it twice and twist both the ends using your fingers.
4.Keep it on a paper or plastic sheet and complete the rest.
5.Heat oil in a kadai/pan and once the oil is hot drop in very little dough to see if its raising up after few seconds,then its the right temperature to fry.
6.Add 4-5 at a time depending on the size of your pan , fry them by constantly stirring them so that it they don't burn.
7.leave them in a tissue and once they cool down ,store them in a air tight container and it stays fresh for a week or even more.
Note: As you see in the picture , the endings of the snack are not neatly pressed so when you make them you can press and make even soft endings .
