Many of you may know this is the most popular snacks in Gujarati family. It is most famous Gujarati dish loved by all young and adult, eaten during weekend breakfast/brunch.
Preparation time: 30 minutes
Cooking Time: 30 minutes
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup oil
2 cup besan (gram flour)
1 tsp ajwain (carom seeds)
1/4 tsp asafoetida
Salt to taste
Oil for cooking
1. Crush carom seed with mortar and pestle. Shift the flour.
2. In a large mixing bowl, add water, oil, crushed carom seeds and asafoetida. Mix it until mixer thickens around 2-3 minutes. In the same bowl, add besan gradually and continue mixing. Also add salt while you are mixing the flour. Make roti like dough.
3. There is a traditional way to make fafda but not many people know. This is how I do it. Cover small flat surface with plastic, spread little oil on it and put dough ball on it. Cover dough with another plastic and roll with rolling-pin. Roll carefully to little thinner than paratha thickness. Remove the top plastic, cut from all sides to make it rectangle and then make 4 to 5 straight cuts.
Have fun making this popular snacks and enjoy during the weekend brunch.
