Nimki, a savory snack
Indian has not only big sweet-tooth, they have a love affair with savory snack too.
Though countless aspirations made to improve diets, the song remains the same.people still want snacks.Nimki, while you pronounce it, stretch the “i” part a bit.That’s how we call these crispy triangles in Odiya language.
In Odisha Sweet and savory snacks is a versatile area. Easily you will get packaged savory snacks in any local grocery shop.A jar full of crispy Nimkis is the most common sight at a road-side chai stall.
One piece Nimki costs around 5 bucks there.Yeah, only 5 bucks!
Pair with a cup of tea or with some hot plate of Ghuguni, you gonna enjoy it in all way.Sometimes I need them after having sweet to balance.
There used to be a Bengali Shop in my home-town.He used to prepare the most crispiest Nimkis.But his Nimkis were not kept in glass-jar.He stored them in a big tall tin box.
I am not much fond of maida stuff.But when it comes to this crispy snack, I just ignore that “healthy” term.The way I do to the most loved Panipuri or Puchka.
Though one can buy easily all these stuff, still I prefer home-made.Out of many factors, the most important is the oil.Do you re-use Frying oil? Read this article to know how many times you can!
This recipe is completely from my Mom.In this video, she is the one who is in action.Thanks to her, I could manage to do my first recipe video .I hope you have checked my Travel videos of Hampi.
You can use whole wheat flour and all-purpose flour in 50:50 ratio.You may not get that crunchiness like the one prepared with 100% all-purpose flour.Sometimes you just need to enjoy some food the way it is.I believe if you eat everything at a limit, then it’s completely FINE!
But believe me, these are so addictive that one can devour 2 to 3 pieces in one go.So prepare a good amount.You can store them up to 15 days in an air-tight container at room temperature.
