You will need:
2 cups besan (chick-pea flour)
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp ajwain (thymol)
1/4 tsp haldi (turmeric)
1 tbsp oil
1/2 tsp salt tsp or to taste
oil to deep-frying
Mix the besan, soda, ajwain, haldi, 1 tbsp oil and salt together. Add water and knead into a soft dough.
Take a portion of the dough and roll it like a stick keeping the dough in between ur palms.Place the doungh between two sheets of greased polythene and roll with a rolling pin. This will form a strip. Cut this strip in three parts. Roll each of these pieces and fry them over medium heat till crisp.

Your Fafda twist is ready. Sprinkle a bit of chaat powder on top of it and serve.
This can also be used in chaat. Will soon post a chaat variety using these fafdas...:)
