Knead the dough and  cut it into two equal halves and cover them with a damp cloth.

Heat Oil in a Non-stick deep pan or a Kadai

Take one half and  using a belan or rolling pin,roll this into a circle about half cm in thickness , you can use a little amount of flour to sprinkle to avoid the dough sticking to the surface.

Cut the rolled dough into squares using a knife.

Take these cut squares & deep fry them until they turn golden brown.

Remove these squares using a slotted spoon and place them on tissue papers for the remaining oil to get absorbed.

Enjoy this in the evenings as a snack.

You can even make a sweet savoury the same way which is called 

Shakar-Parre a typical Hyderabadi snack

with just a simple variation which is boiling sugar in water for 3-4minutes and using that to knead the dough with a pinch of salt and  avoiding cumin seeds if you don’t want them.I hope you will all try this and  like it!
