Salted Tukdi/Salted diamond cuts

This is the salted version of tukdi which is again super crisp.Yesterday I had posted a spicy version and this  is slightly different.Slight difference also make a great change,isn’t it?I don’t mind trying the  same dish with different variations.Recently I saw this tukdi post in a FB group posted by my friend Chandrika Kini who is an awesome cook.Well, I was lucky to lunch with her  during my UAE visit and she had prepared such a tasty spread.She adapted this recipe from Nutan Shenoy Kini.I thank both of them for this recipe.And the minute I saw this I could not resist myself and tried it out to the earliest and this is me.

Maida-1 1/2 cup
Ghee – 2 tbsp,heated
Sugar- a pinch
Ajwain(carom seeds/bishops weed)-1/4 tsp approx
Eno fruit salt-1/4 tsp
Oil- to deep fry


  1. Take a broad mixing bowl,add maida,salt to taste,ajwain,sugar and fruit salt.
  2. Make a dent in the centre and add water as much as needed and make a soft dough.
  3. Once the dough is almost done add heated ghee and knead further.
  4. The dough should be soft as of chapathi.
  5. Close it and keep it to set for an hour.
  6. Once it sets,punch the dough again,make lemon sized balls.
  7. Meanwhile keep oil to heat.
  8. Roll the balls into thin round chapathi.
  9. Use a pizza cutter or tukdi cutter and give diamond shape cuts.
  10. Once the oil starts to smoke,adjust the heat and slide the tukdis carefully in the oil.
  11. Roast  until  crisp and brown in colour.
  12. Cool it and store it in an airtight container.
  13. Munch it  with evening tea/coffee.
