  1. Add Photo

    Add in the salt, carom seeds, red chilli powder, asafoetida and cumin seeds (if using) with the flour. Mix well. Add in the butter and mix it well with fingers, do not knead, just mix it.

  2. Add Photo

    Adding very little water at a time, bring it together to form a ball, no need to knead.  Keep aside for 15 minutes covered.

    Pinch out balls from the flour and roll out with a rolling pin, just like a chappati.

  4. Change

    Cut vertical stripes and create the moon-like shapes with a cookie cutter. I don't have one, so I just used the edge of a bottle cover.

  5. Change

    When all the cashew-shaped crackers are cut, fry them in oil on medium flame till golden brown. You could also fry them simultaneously while making the cashew shapes.

  6. Add Photo

    Take out on a kitchen paper to absorb excess oil. Store in an air-tight box when cooled and enjoy with tea.
