Spicy Diamond Cuts
During the Christmas break we were craving for something to munch on and I decided to make these. I have tasted the spicy (salted) version of this and the sweet ones and both are pretty good but only made the spicy ones this time. Though the recipe calls for maida, I used whole wheat flour (atta) mostly and a little bit of all purpose flour. This is perfect with a cup of tea.
SPICY DIAMOND CUTSIngredients:
Whole wheat flour - 3/4 cup
All purpose flour - 1/4 cup
Butter - 2 tsp, melted
Cumin seeds - 1/2 tsp
Chilli powder - 1 tsp (or to taste)
Salt, to taste
Oil, to deep fry
1) Mix the flours with cumin seeds, chilli powder and salt. To this mixture add butter that has been heated and mix. Add water little by little and knead into a stiff dough.
2) Pull apart portions of the dough and roll into thin chapathis. Cut these into small diamonds (first cut horizontal lines about an inch apart and then cut vertically at an angle).3) Heat oil and deep fry these pieces till golden. It will turn crispy when it has cooled a bit.
