Elo Jhelo Nimki

Ingredients to make Elo Jhelo Nimki

  • Maida/ all purpose flour - 11/2 cup
  • Refined oil - 3 tablespoon + 2 to 3 cups for deep frying
  • salt to taste
  • sugar - 11/2 teaspoon
  • Nigella Seeds/ kalonji - 1 teaspoon

How to make Elo Jhelo Nimki

  1. Take maida, 3 tablespoon oil, kalonji, salt and sugar all together and make dough.
  2. Now make equal size of balls and roll like chapati.
  3. Leaving one cm from each edge, make parallel slits in one cm gap in that round chapati.
  4. Now hold both the ends and give a twist to those cuts and lock both the edges by pressing with fingers.
  5. For my convenience, I made the chapati half circle and from one chapati I prepared two elo jhelo.
  6. Repeat the above steps (3, 4, 5) for the remaining dough.
  7. Now heat oil for deep frying. Fry the elo jhelos till golden and fry them in medium heat to avoid burning. Store them in air tight container.

My Tip:

The dough should be like maida poori or luchi dough. It should not be soft or very tight.
