as i was explaining earlier there isn’t any significant difference between the authentic and traditional namak para recipe. at a high level, the shape is the only significant difference. yet just because of the shape, it is made for different occasions. basically, the cashew shaped namak paare is prepared for occasions, particularly with the intention to share with friends and family. in other words, these kaju shaped fritters are filled in sweet boxes as a replacement for spiced and savoury cashews. whereas the basic ones are made for the family as a munching snack without any intention to fill it in a gift pack. there isn’t any hard and fast rule, but this a general practice with many families and across many halwai shops.

furthermore some more additional tips, suggestions and variations to the kaju namak para recipe. firstly, the ideal namak paare is made with just plain flour or maida. but this can also be made with other flours like atta or wheat flour or the combination of wheat and plain flour. it should equally taste great but maida is more preferred. secondly, avoid using large caps to shape these and use small-sized caps. also, these caps have to have sharp edges and hence i would recommend using metal bottle caps. lastly, deep fry in a low flame to make it crisp and brittle. it also helps to get a good colour and it would be evenly cooked. moreover deep fry these in small batches and make sure the batch is transferred to oil as soon as possible.
