While making dough keep it mind that it should be very soft or hard.

When you are about to fry the namakpara then always fry it in low to medium flame.

Do not fry it in high flame otherwise it will look cooked from outside but remains uncooked inside and it won’t taste crispy.

Salt should be added according to your taste.

You can also make them using only all purpose flour or wheat flour, It is upto you here I have used both.
