Use a strainer with metal edges for this recipe. Strainer sits over a kadai full of oil and namkeen is fried in it. I have used a mandolin to cut my potato wafers. Potato sticks/wafers are cut thin and fried until crunchy and crispy. Make sure they are thin and fried until crunchy.
Fry peanut until slightly dark in color and then combine all the three in a bowl and toss with your favorite spices.
Store in an airtight container and it’s good for 2-3 weeks.Sabudana Namkeen
