recently i have shared quite a few deep fried snacks recipe, but this recipe of crisp nimki recipe is my new favourite. there are primarily 2 reasons for my new choice. firstly, it’s due to the crispy and flaky texture this snack has to offer even after preserving it for weeks. typically, most of the deep fried snacks turn out to be crisp and eventually soggy after a while. but this snack holds its shape tight and remains flaky easily. secondly, when it is compared to the simplicity, none can compare to this recipe. as i mentioned previously it is made with just 4 ingredients yet making a classic snacks recipe.

furthermore, some important tips and suggestions while making crisp bangla nimki recipe. firstly, in this recipe, i have shaped this snack in a triangular shape which is a popular one for this snack. but can be shaped to any desired shape as per the preference or choice. secondly, i have not tried this recipe with wheat flour but can also be done with it. but my first preference would be always maida for a crisp and flaky texture. lastly, store these crisp snack in an airtight container for a better shelf life. also, do not deep fry these in high flame as it may not evenly cook.
