yields: 2 cups


for dough
1 cup whole wheat flour
1/3 teaspoon salt, to taste
1/4 teaspoon cumin powder, crushed
1/2 teaspoon cumin seeds
1/4 teaspoon carom seeds
1 tablespoon ghee
5-7 tablespoons water, as needed
for frying
2 cups oil or ghee


for dough
In a bowl, mix whole wheat flour, salt, cumin powder, crushed cumin seeds, carom seeds, and ghee. Gradually add water, one tablespoon at a time. Knead for 5 to 7 minutes to make a smooth, stiff dough. Cover with a damp cloth and rest for 20 to 25 minutes at room temperature.
for frying
Preheat oil in a deep skillet over a medium flame.

Meanwhile, grease the worktop and roll out the dough into a semi-thin circle. Using a pizza cutter or a knife, cut the circle into long stripes or any shape as per your preference.

To test the oil temperature, drop a small piece of dough, which should rise with bubbles formed around it and float without turning dark brown.

Fry the crispies until crispy and golden brown. Drain on a paper towel. Once cool, store in a clean, dry jar for up to a week.
