Small though it is, sesame is a treasure trove of iron, resplendent with a rich aroma too. Here, we have combined til and palak with a dough of jowar and whole wheat flour, to make a modified version of the traditional Bengali nimki. It is also interesting to note that we have cooked the Palak Til Jowar Nimki on a tava instead of deep-frying in oil, making this scrumptious snack even healthier.

  5. Heat a non-stick tava (griddle) and grease it with oil.

  7. Repeat steps 3 to 6 to make 36 more nimkis in 4 more batches.
  8. Cool completely and store in an air-tight container.

A tsaty and crunchy iron rich snack. Though it takes a while to roast these nimkis on the tava but I was happy to know that nimkis can be made without deep frying. Thanks for the recipe.
