Nimki also known as namak para or nimkin, is a crunchy savoury snack eaten in India, Pakistan and Bangladesh.
Nimki is ribbon-like strips of pastry delicately seasoned with ajwain, cumin seeds, carom seeds, or caraway seeds and deep fried in pure ghee (clarified butter) or oil. Although this is a deep fried recipe of namkeen, you can also bake nimki in an oven if you don't want to deep fry them.
It requires approximately 10 minutes to prepare and 20 minutes to cook. The appearance, taste, and texture can be compared to that of samosa pastry.
Nimki is another evening time favourite snack. It's not only for a simple evening snack but many people use to make nimki during festivals like Diwali or Holi. Kids love this snack.
