Namak Pare is a deep fried savoury snack usually made during festivals as Holi and Deepavali. It is crispy and tasty and make a good snack for children. It is ideal to carry while travelling.

Usually namak pare is made with self raising flour or a mix of self raising flour and wheat flour in the same ratio. But, I use only wheat flour along with semolina and they turn out equally good. Deep fried snacks are always welcome at home, children love to binge on this.

It is that time of the month when I work on my themed post, and I have chosen travel food for kids. So stay tuned for tasty snacks in  the next three days.
