Namak (Salt) Pare are one of those wonderful snacks that are appropriate anytime of the day, any time of the year. Traditionally, it is important to serve a savory item when a sweet is served for balance, or choice and because “Salt” is such an essential part of life. They are easy to make and need very few ingredients, mostly stuff that we have in our pantry all the time. So this festival season, whip up some of this fried goodness and enjoy with family and friends.
