400 grams Plain Flour

2 tbsp Sesame Seeds

½ tbsp Ajmo (Ajwain Seeds)

1 tsp Green Chilli Paste

½ tsp Turmeric Powder

2 tsp Salt

Spice Powder:

5 tbsp Icing Sugar

  1. Sieve the plain flour, self-raising flour and gram flour in a bowl; add the sesame seeds, ajmo, green chilli paste, turmeric and salt, mix well until the spices have combined.

  2. Add a little water and start to knead the dough well until the dough is soft; cover the dough and let it rest for at least 30-40 minutes.

  3. Divide the dough into small pieces about 2½ cm and shape it into round balls.

  4. Dust the work surface with plain flour and roll out the dough into even circles about 12 inches and 1mm thin; place them on a cloth separately, do with all the dough and keep them covered.

  5. Heat the oil in a wok on medium-high heat.

  6. Cut a parchment paper about 16 inches long; take each round circle, place it on the parchment paper, using a pizza cutter or a knife, cut into 1-inch strips and one cut in the middle.

  7. Slide the fafara in the oil, deep-frying, keep flipping until nice and crispy, drain over kitchen paper and sprinkle the spice powder on top.

  8. Repeat the frying process until all the fafaras are fried, cool them and store them in an airtight tin.

  • Enjoy them with breakfast or a teatime snack.
