Cashew-Shaped Crackers



1 cup all purpose flour

1/4 cup rava/semolina

3 tbsp ghee

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 tsp carom seeds


1. Firstly, in a large bowl, mix the all purpose flour with rava, carom seeds and salt. Add in the ghee and mix them to get a crumbly texture. 

2. Now, add in warm water in parts to make a pliable dough. The dough should neither be too soft nor too hard. 

3. Cover the dough and let it rest for 15-20 mins. After 20 mins, knead the dough slightly and roll it to 1 cm thick. 

4. Now, using a circular object, cut the dough into half moon shape. Keep shaping as many as you can and keep them aside to be fried in batches. Gather the rest of the dough and the discarded shape. Knead and roll again. Continue making as many shapes as you can. 

5. To fry the crackers, heat oil. When the oil gets medium hot, drop the crackers in batches without overcrowding the kadai. Fry them on medium flame, tossing gently in between. 

6. Fry the crackers for 10-12 mins or till they turn golden brown in color. Make sure to toss in between for even coloring. 

7. Once done, take them out in a kitchen paper towel to remove excess oil. Prepare the remaining batches in the same way. 

8. Finally, sprinkle some salt and dry mango powder(amchur) over the crackers and toss them around. Serve them with evening tea as a tea-time snack. Alternatively, you can store the cashew-shaped crackers in an airtight container for about 2 weeks.
