First of all wishing everyone reading this blog a Merry Christmas And A Happy New Year.

Christmas is just around the corner and I am feeling nostalgic. Going down the memory lane, today I am sharing a childhood memory snack Namkee recipe. When it comes to Christmas And New Year, this is the time of the year we prepare lots of snacks, cakes and meat preparations. And this Crispy Namkee recipe is one of them. We prepare this in large quantities and distribute with neighbours, close friends and relatives.

This is an easy recipe with just 6 basic ingredients. The Namkee is super crispy, so delicious and a perfect tea time snacks. And the best thing is you can prepare it in large quantities and can store for couple of weeks or upto a month.

This Namkee is similar to namak paare/sakar paare. But this Namkee is thinnier and very crispy. Here in this recipe the dough is made of flour, baking powder, milk, sugar and rolled them into very thin pooris and cut into shapes and deep fried in oil to perfection. I have used kalonji in the dough. You can replace it with black sesame seeds too.
