Namak Pare Recipe | Layered Saakhein

What is Layered Saakhein?

Namakpare is a more popular snack, which is a flaky deep-fried snack. Saakhein happens to be its crispies and thinner cousin. Ok, let me explain. Saakhein is basically a crisp and thin deep-fried snack, made with all-purpose flour (technically. These are crunchy fried strips.  When the same is prepared with some layers, it becomes layered saakhein. There is a technique used to make the layered saakhein. It is a bit time consuming but certainly worth it. It takes saakhein to another level making the same much more crispy and delectable. I have always made regular and simple saakhein. But ever since I made these, I have never made the simple ones. These namak pare surprise, my guest, too. These are great munching snacks. And are just so perfect for tea time!

Ingredients and Substitutes:

Flour: All-purpose flour works the best for the namak pare recipe. These namakpare are all about their texture and any change in the flour is nothing but a compromise on the same which is not recommended. Further, I have not tried this recipe using any other flour; therefore I am not sure about the results.

Oil: Oil is used for deep frying the namak pare. Also, oil has been added while preparing the dough for the same. Adding moyan i.e. oil to the dough makes this snack crisp and flaky.

Salt and carom seeds: Salt for seasoning and carom seeds for flavoring have been used. You can play with the flavors by adding jeera, black peppers, garlic, etc. namakpare recipe

Hi! I am CA Vini Mehta. A Chartered Accountant by profession, a food blogger by passion! First of all, I would like to thank you for stopping by at Viniscookbook, I hope you have a good time. Here, yo...u will find the recipes which have been tried, at times re-tried in my kitchen and relished on the dining table. I am mother of two kids and the wife of a person with a high and selective taste sense, so basically anything, before finding its place on the blog, has many levels to cross and clear. This journey started a couple of years back. Before that I was making the most usual kind of food. The only experiment used to be asking my mother how to make something new or different☺. Then, one day, I tried a recipe for butter cookies. And they did not get to go in the container as they were over before I could store them. That day I was introduced to the joy of experimenting with recipes. And I loved everything else that followed especially garnishing and photographing food. I am still not well versed with the photography dos and don’ts but I love to experiment and learn, be it photography or cooking. Hope you too enjoy this journey as much as I do☺! Stay healthy, stay tuned!.
