Nimkis are salty crackers made with flour and flavored with a little bit of toasted black cumin seed. Since they are deep-fried, you can store them for a longer period of time (2-3 weeks) in a air-tight container or ziploc bags. You can enjoy Nimkies with tea or cold drinks for snacks. When we were younger, my bhauju (sister-in law) used to make this snack during rainy days. In Nepal you can buy nimkies from any halwai shop and they give it to you in a cone made with old newspapers. Since I didn’t have old news paper handy, I made cones with Victoria secret magazine paper. Finally I found a good use for this magazine;) Make sure you try this recipe, you will love it.
2 cups of all purpose flour
1 teaspoon black cumin seed (toasted)
Salt to taste (I use 2 teaspoons)
2 cups of vegetable oil (to deep fry)
4. In a deep pan, heat oil. ( I recommend testing oil by dropping a piece of nimki in the hot oil. Also make sure to adjusting oil temperature throughout the frying process. If the oil is too hot, it will burn those nimkies.)
