Recipe Cook Time


Munch on these semolina snacks on a rainy day with a hot cup of tea.


  • 1 cup refined flour

    1 cup semolina

    1/2 tsp thymol seeds

    1 tsp salt

    1/4 cup clarified oil

    Cold water - to mix

    Oil - for deep frying


Mix the thymol seeds, salt, semolina and flour together and rub the clarified butter in lightly so that the mixture resembles breadcrumbs.

Knead into a stiff dough with cold water.

Cover dough and set to rest in a cool place for at least 15 minutes.

Roll out the dough into a 1/4 or 1/8 cm in thick sheet.

Prick with a fork all over the surface.

Cut into narrow strips of desired size.

Heat the oil in a kadhai till a piece of dough dropped in, rises to the top at once.

Then, put in as many strips as will fit in comfortably.

Turn once, and lower heat to medium. Fry till light brown on both sides.

Lift out and place on absorbent paper.

Fry the rest similarly, increasing heat before adding a fresh lot.

Cool and store in an airtight container.
