A perfect tea time munches enjoyed by every one!!

Ingredients :

Namak Pare:

3 cups All purpose flour(Maida)
1 teaspoon carom seeds (ajwain)
1 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoon ghee
1/2 cup semolina(sooji)
1/2 cup water for kneading

 In a bowl mix maida, salt, ajwain and sooji. Add ghee and mix properly. Add little portions of water and knead into dough. The dough should be little stiff. Cover this dough for 5 -10 minutes with a damp cloth and keep aside. Make 3-4 balls out of this dough. Roll it with help of rolling pin. Do not make a very thin sheet. Cut long stripes out of this sheet. Again cut the stripes diagonally of desired length . Heat oil in a kadahi . Put the cut stripes into the heated oil and deep fry them on low-medium flame till it becomes crispy golden brown in colour.
 Crunchy Namak para is ready.

Optional notes:

I had added sooji to give it a crunchy texture. It is optional. One can store the namak para and keep it for longer period  in an air tight container.
