Tikona Nimki is a variation of Namak paare snack. It is a layered, crunchy triangular shaped snack covered with very yummy spice mixture.



  • 2 cups Maida/All-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp Rock salt (you can use table salt as well)
  • 1 tsp Sugar – 1tsp
  • 1 tsp Kalonji/Nigella seeds – 1tsp
  • 2 tbsp Ghee (for “mayan”)
  • Water for kneading the dough
  • Oil for frying


  1. Take 2 cups of all-purpose flour add salt, sugar, kalonji and ghee/oil.
