Nimki is a crunchy, diamond-shaped savoury Bengali snack. It is characterised by its crispness and appetizing flavour of cumin and pepper.
It can be enjoyed plain, or with tongue-tickling green chutney green chutney. In this recipe, we have combined whole wheat flour with oats to make a heart-healthy Oats Nimki.
Spices like pepper and jeera make up for the reduction in salt, ensuring that this healthy version tastes just as good as the traditional one.
- Combine all the ingredients in a deep bowl and knead into semi-stiff dough using enough water.
- Divide the dough into 6 equal portions.
- Roll out each portion into a thin round circle of 150 mm. (6”) diameter using a little whole wheat flour for rolling.
- Cut each circle into 8 equal size long strips and keep aside. You will get 48 strips in all.
- Heat a non-stick tava (griddle) and cook the strips, a few at a time, on hot tava (griddle), while pressing them using folded muslin cloth or khakhra press, till they turn crisp and golden brown in colour from both the sides.
- Cool completely and serve or store in an air-tight container
