Suhaali's are a crisp tea time snack made with plain flour , cumin and carom seeds. These can be served with a cup of hot tea or served with a spoon of mango pickle as a light snack. Suhaali is traditionally made for wedding and special occasions like Holi and Diwali. Now a days these crispy delights are available in every Namkeen or snack shops.  Suhaali's are simple to Papdi, small round shaped flat puris which are used for chaat recipes like papdi chaat, sev puri and bhel puri.

This recipe goes to day 9 of Mega Marathon theme " Sweets and Snacks".


Maida / All purpose flour  1 cup
Carom seeds 1 tsp
Cumin seeds 1 tsp
Salt to taste

Oil for deep frying


In a mixing bowl add maida, carom seeds, cumin seeds and salt to taste.
Add melted ghee or butter and mix thoroughly.
Now add enough water to make soft dough.
Divide the dough into 40 equal portions.

Lovely snack with simple flavors and these non spicy ones would be loved by even little kids.
Sushma, the name Suhaali is new to me. Enjoying your picks. That plate of Suhaali with a cup of tea is just what I want right now. Thanks for sharing.
These look so great! I adore puri's, looking forward to getting back to Bangalore in December so I don't have to make them myself!
Awesome ! I love crunchy suhalis . They taste so good with carom and cumin . One of my Rajasthani friends makes the baked version and that is equally delicious .
