Savoury Shakarpade Cheese-it Recipe

20160717_132446

When we were growing up I was not a big fan of snacky things like biscuits although I loved chocolates. But then my dad got these savoury, crunchy snacks. So it was a welcome surprise when my aunt shared the recipe to make these at home.

So here’s how I made them.

500 gms. Of refined flour

Cheese 2 bowls

4 tsps butter

Milk 2 cups 

Salt to taste

Oil for frying

I also added a few spices because I am an Indian and it’s a force of habit. 

2 tsp cumin seeds

1 tsp carom seeds

1 tsp black pepper powder 

Procedure

Add the refined flour, salt, pepper powder. Blend the carom seeds and cumin seeds into fine powder. Add it to the flour and mix the ingredients.

Grate the cheese into the dry mix. Melt the butter and pour it to the mix. Pour the milk and knead the dough. The dough should not be soft.

Roll the dough into a thin line and using a cutter cut small diamonds in a criss cross. Separate them and fry them on a mid flame. 

Let them cool down and store them in an air tight container.
