Minty Baked Namakparas

I prepared thsese namakparas many months ago which I had not posted in my blog. Now with the Healthy Bakes event going on it was apt for me to post it now and send it to the Healthy Cooking Challenge-Healthy Bakes an event of Smitha and guest hosted by Priya of Easy and Tasty recipes.

1/2 cup wheat flour
1/2 cup all purpose flour
salt to taste
chilli powder to taste
1/4 tea spoon garlic powder or 1 clove of garlic
2 handfuls of mint leaves
2 table spoon oil or softened butter

Grind the mint leaves coarsely with garlic if using the fresh one or chop it fine.  Mix the flour with salt, chilli powder and garlic powder if using the powder.   Add the oil and rub it in thoroughly till all the flour is well coated with the oil.  Add the mint and very little water to knead it into a tight dough. Roll it out into a thin roti and cut them into 1 inch by 2 inch strips.  Transfer these to a greased baking sheet.

Stick into a oven preheated to 400 degrees and cook them for about 8-10 minutes turning them once in between.
These make yummy tea time snack!!  These can be enjoyed with any dip.  I had this snack with Yellow Squash Chutney/Dip.

  1. Baked Namakpara sound great and mint must be refreshing in it. Have to give it a try.
