Baked Namak Para.

namak para

Namak Para is one of this dishes I like to carry when I’m travelling. Often I’ve used it with chole as a quick bite. Traditionally it is of course fried. But I realized the baked version requires less fat both to make the dough and to cook it. It’s very quick to make too.


  • I cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/3 cup all purpose flour.
  • 1/3 cup ghee
  • 1 tsp. Baking powder
  • Ajwain.
  • Salt to taste.

Sift the flours and knead all the ingredients to a stiff dough.

Keep aside for an hour.

Roll it out into a flat roti. Cut these into your favourite shape. My mother uses paani puri size katori to cut it into small discs. I’m lazy I just cut into strips.

Bake in a preheated oven at 180o for 15mnts.

Cool and store. Stays for about a week.
