Hema's recipe: Spicy Diamond Cuts
DIAMOND CUTS makes a great snack. It is very spicy and crispy and can be served with tea in the evening. My mom usually does it with maida. But I tried with wheat flour which has fibre content and is good for health.
1) Whole wheat flour - 1 Cup
2) Red Chilli powder - 2 tbsp
3) Hing - 1/4 tbsp
4) Butter - 2 tbsp
5) Ajwain seeds(omam) - 1 tbsp
6) Oil for frying
1)Mix the Wheat flour, chilli powder, butter, ajwain and hing with water and make this into a tight dough like chapati dough.
2)Make lemon size balls from the dough and roll it like chapati. Roll it little thick & not too thin.
3)Using a knife cut these rolled chapatis into small diamond pieces.
4)Place the diamond shaped pieces in a paper and allow it to dry.
5)Take a kadai, heat the oil on medium heat and when the oil is hot, add handful of dried diamond pieces and fry it until it becomes crisp.
6)Take the crisp diamond cuts and keep it in a bowl with a paper tissue to dry the excess oil.
7)Diamond cuts can be stored in air tight container for one month.
