Wheat Diamond Cuts

Diamond cuts is something my mom used to make regularly during my childhood. Her version is with maida and then dipped in either sugar syrup or powdered sugar (both version are absolutely yummy). But in Chennai, Wheat savoury diamonds are popular and when I was there, I used to buy it regularly from Primas Bakery... (hmmmm absolutely yummy stuff they have!!!!) So here's how Wheat Diamonds are made...




Wheat Flour: 2 cups
Cumin: 2 level tsp
Chilly Powder: 1 level tbsp
Warm Oil: 3 tbsp
Salt: as required

Water:  for making the dough
Oil: for deep frying

Mix the flour, cumin, chilly powder and salt.
Add the oil and rub it in to resemble fine bread crumbs.
Now add water little by little and make a firm dough.
Keep it covered for about half an hour.
Now make small balls out of it and roll it out like for roti/chappati/pita bread
Prick with fork all over and cut it with a knife, first vertically and then diagonally so as to get diamond shapes.
Heat oil and once it is hot, lower the flame to medium and fry in batches till golden brown.
Drain on an absorbent paper and once cooled, store it in an airtight container.
