Nimki is an all-time favourite Bengali jar snack, which has a very appetizing flavour and extremely interesting mouth-feel!

Surprisingly, this snack requires only a few ingredients. Made of a plain flour dough flavoured elegantly with cumin and nigella seeds, the Nimki gets its unique texture from the way it is rolled and cut.

It feels very different when you bite into a Nimki and you are sure to be bowled over by the sheer variety that Indian cuisine offers – isn’t it truly amazing how the same ingredients can yield different kinds of snacks simply because they are rolled or cooked differently?

Continue the trend, and relish many more interesting homemade jar snacks like the Dry Pasta Jar Snack and Caramel Popcorn .
