Dashamir Naru and Nimki - Ritu Dutta



Dashami evening snacks are integral part of Durga pujo. With neighbours and friends and family pouring in on a dashami evening, these yummy snacks made by my mom were favourite to kids and adults alike. I try and continue the same tradition here too.




1)  All purpose flour/Maida  : 2 cups

2)  Baking powder :  ½ teaspoon

3)  Oil : 2 teaspoon for the dough and more for deep frying

4)  Salt  :  to taste

5)  Black cumin seeds/kalonji :  ½ teaspoon


1)  Add salt, kalonji, baking powder, oil to the flour and mix together.

2)  Gradually add warm water into the flour and knead into smooth dough.

3)  Cover the dough and keep aside for some time.

4)  Divide the dough into equal portions and shape them in round balls.

5)  Roll each ball into a thick circle and cut them into diamond shaped pieces.

6)  Deep fry the squares in hot oil over a medium flame. Remove when light brown and drain on paper towel.
