Elo Jhelo Nimki a popular Bengali snack that is prepared during festivites, it is a salty-sweet snack made using maida and deep fried in oil.
- Combine plain flour, 3 tbsp oil, nigella seeds, salt and sugar in a deep bowl and knead into a semi stiff dough.
- Divide the dough into equal portions and roll like a chapati.
- With a sharp knife make 1 cm wide parallel slits in the centre of the chapati.Leaving 1 cm off the edge.
- Now hold both the ends and give a twist to those cuts and lock both the edges by pressing with your fingers.
- Repeat the above step for the remaining dough.
- Heat oil in a deep kadhai and fry the elo jhelos on a medium flame till golden brown.
- Store them in air tight container and use as required.
- For my convenience, I cut the rolled chapati into half and made 2 elo jhelo from 1 chapati. Normally, people prepare one elo jhelo from one chapati.
