Methi Namakpara / Namkeen Para / Fenugreek Savory Diamonds

In my house, my huby like to open up the containers  and have some snacks like puris,chevdo, chavna (namkeen mix)  this kind of para , khakhara when having tea over the weekend. So when was planning to make puris, I planned to make this before puri so the oil didn't have taste of Methi in it. So made this and enjoyed by everyone. Kids also love it and our breakfast become enjoyable. If you are making with someone, then its a fast process otherwise if you are making alone, then you can first make all the diamonds and put it on the paper and then you can fry it all in batches. But with two people , one can make it and other can fry it. So Let's get started.

Ingredients :

1 cup Whole wheat flour
1 cup AP Flour (Maida)
5 tbsp. kasoori methi - crushed in your palms
1 tbsp. Turmeric powder
1 tbsp. Jeera - cumin seeds
3/4  cup oil to knead the dough
1/2 to 3/4 cup water to knead the dough
salt to taste
oil to fry


Mix both flours, methi, turmeric powder, cumin seeds, oil , salt and add little water to make the hard dough.

Divide the dough in to balls. Make it circle and then cut in horizontal and vertical to give diamond shape.
Heat up the oil in kadai.
Fry this diamonds in hot oil on medium flame till its become brown and crispy. It should take atleast 5-6 minutes per batch.
Take it out on paper towel.

 Enjoy with tea or just as it is.
