MISHTI NIMKI / FRIED SWEET CRACKER RECIPE

The biggest festival of nation – Durga Pujo, has come to an end. Ma Durga left for her home with her family after spending days at her maternal home.

As Ma Durga immerses in water, Bengali does Bijoya Dashami, a ritual where people touch feet of their elder, and seek their blessings, exchange sweets. People visit family, Friends, treat each other with sweet or salty snacks like Nimki, Chanachur. It’s an age old tradition.

My mother cooks Nimki for this occasion since my school days. We treat our guests with homemade Kucho Nimki and sweets. This year, Ma prepared this Mishti Nimki for this eve. This Mishti Nimki- it’s just the sweeter version of the salty Nimki. Deep fried Nimkis are dunked in a sugar syrup, thus making it sweet and also an awesome easy-to-cook Sweet Recipe.

NOTE

  1. Nimki can be of any shape, depending on preference.
  2. Always dip the salty Nimkis in sugar syrup immediately after frying. Let it soak for 20 minutes.
  3. Crush cardamom or cloves can be used for making syrup flavourful.

This NIMKIS can be stored in Air tight container for months.
