It isn't too difficult to make and it's a very crunchy spicy, tasty and yummy snack which is great for anyone and perfect with tea or coffee! If you're para crazy then check out my Sugar Coated Shakkarpara and Jaggery Para

You will need :-
  • 250 g chickpea flour or besan
  • 250 g plain flour or chapatti flour
  • 50 g fine semolina
  • 100 ml oil
  • Salt to taste
  • 2-3 tsp red chilli powder ( you can adjust to your liking )
  • 2 tsp sesame seeds
  • 2 tsp ajwain ( carom seeds )
  • Oil to fry para
Masala powder to sprinkle on crackers
  • Red chilli powder 1 tsp.
  • Dry mango powder 1/2 tsp. ( Amchoor Powder )
  • Garam masala 1/2 tsp.
  • Chaat masala 1 tsp.
  • Anardaana powder 1/2 tsp. ( pomegranate powder )
Method :-
Mix all the masala powder ( to sprinkle ) in one bowl and leave it aside.
Mix chickpea flour, plain flour, semolina, 100 ml oil, salt, sesame seeds, ajawain seeds and red chilli powder in a bowl.
Combine everything and make a stiff pliable dough. ( like a puri dough )
Cover with wet cloth and leave it 10-15 minutes.

Divide dough into 4-5 equal parts.
Make a ball from each part of the dough and roll into a circle on a flat surface with rolling pin about 1/2 " thick .

Prick the circle with fork so para doesn't fluff up.
Cut each of the rolled dough into half with pizza cutter or knife. ( if you feel like whatever shape you desire you can give like square or diamond but I preffered long sheets )

Heat oil in a heavy bottom kadai , fry the paras on a medium to low heat until brown.
Remove it from the hot oil.
Sprinkle masala powder which prepared earlier and let it cool to room temperature they will go crispy.

Note :- Please do not get confused with this recipe thinking that these are regular Fafda or Choraphali fafda, they both totally different recipes. Check out my Fafda recipe and look forward to see Choraphali fafda recipe in near future.
