  • 1 1/2 oz Ghee
  • 1/2 tsp Onion seeds kalonji
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • Vegetable oil for deep-frying


  • Mix all the ingredients together except oil and knead. Roll the dough to a 1/4 inch- thick disc.
  • With a sharp knife cut the disc into 1/2 inch wide vertical strips.
  • Again cut in a slant about 1/2 inch-wide strips to get diamond shapes.
  • Heat the oil in wok (kadhai); fry these pieces, a few at a time, on low heat till brown and crisp. Remove with a slotted spoon and drain the excess oil on paper towels. Repeat till all the pieces are fried.
