Masala paara

Masala Paara makes a perfect snack during Diwali, as amongst the sweets, this snack acts as a taste changer with its masalas. 
Generally masala paare is mostly had like a tea time snack.
I have tried this first time, and yes it come out ok, but a fully perfect paara needs practice I guess.

Atta / Whole wheat flour 1 cup
Red Chili Powder 1 tsp
Turmeric Powder 1/2 tsp
Jeera / Cumin seeds 1/2 tsp
Salt as per taste
Water to make dough
Oil 2 tbsp + Oil for frying

Step 1 - Making the dough:
 In a bowl, take atta, add red chili powder, turmeric powder, salt, jeera, 2 tbsp oil and needed water, mix and make a soft dough.Cover it and allow to rest for 10 minutes.
After 10 minutes, again knead the dough and divide into equal portions (balls) and flatten with your palms and keep.

Take the rolling board. Dust some atta, take one ball and start rolling it to a fine big circle like roti / chapati.
Now take a knife, cut into shape of paara{Diamond shape or Square shape} and carefully take it in a plate. Do same for all the remaining balls. 

Now lets fry the paara..
Step 2 - Making the paara
Heat oil for frying. Once fully hot, reduce flame to medium, add the paaras {little by little}, and fry them until golden brown both sides.  
Remove on a tissue paper. When cooled, transfer to a air tight jar.
