A non-fried version of the famous Bengali snack, you will love to bite into this Palak Jeera Nimki at tea-time!

While the traditional version is usually made of refined flour (maida), which is devoid of most nutrients, here we share a recipe made using whole wheat flour along with iron-rich spinach.

It is worth learning how to cook the nimkis on a tava with very little oil as shown here, even though it takes a bit of time. You can make it whenever you find time, cook and store in an airtight container, to enjoy at leisure!

You can even pop a few into your snack box to enjoy at work when hunger strikes without warning.
