Leftover roti dough snacks recipe | snacks with leftover roti dough | crispy snacks recipe

It is a crispy and perfect evening snack made with leftover roti dough and spiced gram flour batter. This recipe is a great way to use up any extra dough you may have, and it’s super easy to prepare. To make this snack, we roll out the leftover roti dough into thin circles and then apply a spiced gram flour batter on top. The circles are then layered on top of each other, cut into small pieces, and fried until crispy and golden brown.

The key to making this delicious snack at home are:
  • Firstly, use leftover roti dough that has been refrigerated overnight for best results. The cold dough is easier to roll out into thin circles, which is important for achieving crispy layers.
  • Secondly, the spiced gram flour batter is the star of this recipe. It is made with a combination of gram flour, spices, and water to form a thick paste. You can adjust the amount of spice mix to the spice level you are looking for.
  • Thirdly, the layered circles should be cut into small pieces before frying to ensure even cooking and crispiness. Also, fry the pieces in hot oil until they are golden brown and crispy.
  • Lastly, serve these crispy snacks with your favorite dipping sauce, such as mint chutney, tamarind chutney, or ketchup. These snacks are perfect for a tea-time snack or can be served as an appetizer at a party.
