Now coming to recipe detail
Preparation Time 5 min
Rolling Time 5 to 7 min for one big dumpling
Frying Time 1 min per batch
3 cups All Purpose Flour
1 tsp carom seeds
1/2 tsp kalongi or nigella seeds
2 tbsp oil
1/2 cup+2 tsp water to knead the dough
OIL to deep fry
Black Salt to sprinkle
Take the flour in a big vessel,add all the rest ingredients except water.
Mix it so that oil is incorporated properly with the flour…
After sometime just take a portion of flour mixture and press it…if it forms a shape its done.
Now the time to add the water to the flour mixture.
Add little by little water and knead to a stiff dough.
Rest the dough for 10 to 15 min.
After resting the dough,take abig portion and smoothen it out.
Make a dumpling and roll it as thin as possible as shown in video.
This is the main time taking,after this it just take 1 min maximum to fry the nimkis.
Take a pizza cutter and cut into trips and follow the same from other side.
In this way you get proper diamond shape(u can cut into square shape also)
Meanwhile heat the oil to deep fry.
Take a spatula and slowly remove the diagonal nimkis on it.
Pour into hot oil and continuously stir,this is the trick to follow.
If the flame is low,it takes more time to fry and absorbs little oil also n u feel heavy while having it.
But if the nimkis are fried in high flame,it takes less time maximum 1 min,and believe me it is more lighter and flaky.
After it turns to golden colour,keep this on an absorbent paper so that excess oil cna be removed.
Make it cool down and sprinkle black salt on this.
Store in an air tight container.
Deep fry the nimkis in high flame and continuously stiring it.
Roll as thin as possible,so that it can be fried in less time.
