The texture of the namak pare is crispy and flaky. Addition of oil in the dough makes it flaky. Though you need to follow the exact flour and oil measurement to get the perfect flaky texture.

Addition of sooji in the dough make them crispy. I have added sesame seeds, but if you don’t like you can skip it too.

Diwali festival is starting soon, So I have made a batch of namak para along with other snacks. Just like my mom, I do make many different varieties of snacks during the diwali season. She always make big batches and I do make small batches. Just because we are only two of us I and hubby.
