Introduction: 3 Easy Crunchy Party Snacks

For parties and fun times I love to eat and serve crunchy and crispy foods. Potato fires take time and besides you can't store them after frying.

Well, I have a solution if you're looking for easy yet tasty party snacks which can be stored for a day or 2! These snacks have many local names in my country, such as 'Muruli', 'Goja', 'Kuti-goja', 'Nimok-para' etc.

However, the best thing about these 3 snacks is that they can be stored for 2-3 days. You can store them in containers and serve them easily whenever you want. Lets not waste time and make some!

Step 1: Ingredients

To make these 3 snacks you will need:

For the dough:

  1. All purpose flour- 4 cups,
  2. Cooking oil- Half cup,
  3. Salt- half tea spoon, just for taste,
  4. Baking powder- half cup.

To make the crispy snacks you will need- half tea spoon of nigella seeds,

For the twisted-sweet snacks you will need- 1 tbsp of sugar,

For the crunchy coconut snacks you will need- a cup of shredded coconut and 1 cup of sugar.

Step 2: Making the Dough

To make the dough you'll need- all purpose flour, cooking oil (I used soybean oil), a pinch of salt (for taste) and baking powder (check the ingredients step for amount).

Mix all the ingredients together.

Add water to make dough. Knead the dough very well.

Keep kneading until the dough is smooth.

Divide the dough into 3 equal portions (since we're making 3 different snacks).

Step 3: Crispy Salty Snacks

Take any one of the divided doughs and add half tea spoon of nigella seeds to it.

Knead the dough very well until the nigella seeds are mixed well.

Make a smooth ball and roll it into a roti bread.

Cut the roti bread into thin (1 inch width) slices and then again cut the slices diagonally into small pieces as shown in the picture of this step.

Add oil to a frying pan and heat oil in high heat. After the oil heats bring the heat down to medium. Fry the pieces evenly on all sides and until they're brown. Use a slotted spoon to take them out of the oil.

Step 4: Twisted Sweet Snacks

You don't have to mix anything with the dough for this one.

Make a smooth ball and roll it into a roti bread.

Cut the roti into small pieces as shown in the picture of this step. Take any of the pieces and twist it, press the ends to secure the twist. Similarly twist the other pieces.

In a frying pan heat oil in high heat and once the oil is heated brig the heat down to medium. Fry the twisted pieces evenly on all sides and until they're light brown. Keep them in a dry place while preparing the sugar syrup.

In a saucepan add 1 tbsp of sugar and 2 tbsp of water. Stir until the sugar is dissolved and bring the mixture to boil.

Add the fried twisted snacks to the thick sugar syrup and stir them until they are covered with sugar syrup evenly on all sides. Take them out of the sugar syrup and serve.

Step 5: Crunchy Coconut Snacks

Take a bowl and add the last dough, 1 cup of shredded coconut and 1 cup sugar. Mix them really well. You might need to sprinkle a little flour while kneading. Keep kneading until the dough is smooth and not sticky.

Divide the dough into 2 equal portions and make 2 smooth balls. Roll them into thick roti breads.

Cut the roti bread into small pieces as shown in the picture of this step.

In a frying pan heat oil in high heat and once the oil is heated brig the heat down to low. Fry the pieces until they turn light brown. Fry evenly on all sides. Use a slotted spoon to take them out of the oil.

Done! Serve them or store them to serve later!

Enjoy!
