NAMAK PARE RECIPE OR NAMAK PARAY, DIAMOND CUTS RECIPE

Namak pare or namak paare is a quick snack recipe which is usually a common snack item in our households.

 Namak Paare and shankarpali are definitely a good to go snack item along with tea…

Namak pare or namak para are basically made using maida usually called as all purpose flour and into it is also added semolina(sooji) which would give  the snack dish a slight crispy flavor…

The snack recipe is very namkeen that is a salty one and an amazing recipe that is usually made during occasions such as diwali in north india.

There are many snack recipes that are made for diwali and this is one among them. I would love to include many snack recipes which are salty and sweet and that are perfect for occasions…

 

If one does not get what namak paray are then diamond cuts is the word that can be given to this quick snack recipe. I just like the bite that the snack gives us. The ingredients that go into making namak pare are so common and are actually very few ingredients.
