Barley Namak Pare

Namak pare is a famous Indian snack prepared during the festivals, i prepared my savoury bites with homemade barley flour,wheat flour,all purpose flour with ajwain seeds as spicy version. Namak pare, these savoury bites are quite popular in North India eventhough we south Indians prepare them both savoury and sweet version.These savoury bites gets ready in jiffy and they were absolutely addictive, my version of namak pare turned out extremely crispy and we couldnt stop munching.

An excellent evening snack, barley flour in this namak pare didnt changed the texture or taste of this crisps.Honestly until you wont say that these savoury bites are prepared with barley and whole wheat flour,none will notice it.You can cut them as diamond cut or as squares but i simply went for rectangular shaped biscuits as my lil one wanted as though. Make this quick savoury bites anytime and they will stay prefect more than a week if they are conserved in air tight containers.Sending to my own event CWS-Barley guest hosted by Roshni.

1/2cup Wheat flour
1cup Barley flour
1+1/4cups All purpose flour
1tbsp Ajwain seeds
1/8tsp Baking soda
1tsp Red chilly powder
Oil for frying
Salt

Take together the wheat flour,barley flour,all purpose flour with ajwain seeds,baking soda and red chilly powder in a bowl.

Slowly add water to make a stiff dough.

Cover and keep aside for half an hour.

Make 3 large balls from the dough and roll out as a large round disc.Meanwhile heat the oil for deepfrying.

With a knife,cut them as thin strips and then as rectangule strips.

Drop them in hot oil and fry until they turns brown and crispy.

Drain the excess of oil with a paper towel and store them in air tight containers.

Munch with a cup of coffee.
