Methi Namak Pare | Savory Pastry Diamonds

Fried Savory flour crispies also known as Namak Pare can be easily made at home. Make them ahead in time for Holi, Diwali or even T 20 cricket.

I have got Nostalgic memories linked with this Savory Bite.Lets go flash back about 12 years to Mumbai.We had a story about Kadu manga( Small mango in chilli gravy pickle) in our english  text books in Mumbai ( guess in my 8 th standard) . No one had ever heard or seen it ever in my school. I promised my friends to get it to school one day and let them taste wot it was. My friend Deepali just loved it , that she told me lets do a pact. You give me 1 bottle of Kadu Manga and I get you one Box of Methi Cuts ( Cant recollect the right name for it ).. Its also called Namak Pare..
