Maida Chips

Feb 21st, 2008 | By | Category: All Recipes, Flour recipes, Snacks & Savories
As a child this was a common snack found at home that I loved to eat after coming back from school. My mom used to make them in large quantities and store them in air tight containers. Easy to cook and above all a tasty munch over a cup of tea in the evenings, these gold colored crackers recipe comes straight from my moms kitchen to my dear bloggers.

We need…

All purpose flour/Maida – 2 cups
Salt – 1 tsp
ajwain/carmom seeds – 1 tsp
ghee – 1 tsp
Water – 1/2 cup
oil for deep frying

How to ….

1. Take a large bowl and mix maida, salt and ajwain seeds. Add ghee and to this and mix well .

2. Make a well in the center and add water slowly while mixing, till it forms a pliable dough.

3. Knead the dough till smooth (about 4 – 5 mts), cover and leave it for 10 – 15 mts.

4. Divide the dough into 2 halves and roll out into thin puris.

5. Cut each puri into long strips 1 cm wide and then again diagonally into diamond shape.

6. Heat oil in a deep kadhai (To check if oil is ready for frying, a pinch of dough dropped in should pop up/float immediately on top) and fry these diamonds in batches till golden brown.

7. Serve with a hot cup of tea or soup of your choice. These can be stored in air tight containers and their shelf life is longer too.

  2. Hi Sowjanya,didnt know you started blogging after your break.I just cannot forget the prawn dishes in your blog,they look so good.I have a doubt,in the Prawn vepudu recipe,you have mentioned 10 onions,is it the regular onions or is it shallots?

  3. Hi Sumitha,

    Thanks for dropping by. Well the onions that I used in this recipe are the regular ones but small in size. This recipe would take about 2 – 3 cups of chopped onions. Alternatively u can slit the onions lenghtwise too. How many onions u would like to add on depends on the gravy that u prefer. If you wish to have less then pls reduce the quantity of onions.

    By the way you can subscribe to the feed box on my blog that mails you whenever there is a new post in my blog.

    Got to look into your website while surfing the net for recipes. Its amazing.
    Under the ingredients section of every recipe you have mentioned as 1 cup required but could you please post how much 1 cup measures

  9. Hi Rose,

    I use a measuring cup (USA) for all my recipes. Hope that helps. Here is a link to one of my recipes that shows you the measuring cups I use in my recipes. Hope this gives you a better idea.
