Salt to taste
Jeera - 1/2 tsp
Ajwain - 1/4 tsp
White Sesame seeds - 1/2 tsp
Poppy Seeds / Gasa gasa - 1/2 tsp
Oil for deep frying

How to make the Ragi Namak Para

In a wide bowl, take all the ingredients and slowly add the hot milk and mix with a spoon for the flour to get mixed. Once it comes together, knead with hand to a shift dough.

Rest it for 10 mins, then dust and roll out a disc. Cut into diamonds and keep it aside.

Heat a kadai with oil, when it is hot, deep fry the diamonds. Drain to a kitchen towel.
