All these Gujarati snacks are amazing, but my favourite is fafda. This light snack is so delicious and when paired with jalebi, it can literally take you to foodie heaven. Those who are not Gujarati may find it hard to make this scrumptious snack at home. And those who know, may have been struggling to make it with perfection. But don’t worry, we have your back! We have shared the recipe of this amazing snack that you can make at home. So, follow the steps below and feel what Kartik Aaryan would have felt while eating that thali!!



  • 1 cup besan 
  • ¼ tsp ajwain
  • ¼ tsp baking soda
  • ¼ tsp haldi 
  • 1 tbsp oil
  • ¾ tsp salt
  • 3 to 4 tbsp water
  • Oil for frying


  • Take a bowl and add besan, soda, ajwain, haldi, oil, and salt in it.
  • Mix everything together.
  • Then, add water and knead all the ingredients into a soft dough. 
  • When done, take a portion from the dough and keep it on a surface (greased properly).
  • Now, drag the dough in a straight line using the base of your palm. Do this while holding the dough’s starting point with one hand.
  • When you do this, you will see a strip formed.
  • Cut these strips and fry them in hot oil until crisp.
  • It gets fried quickly so make sure you give it proper attention.
  • When done, drain out the excess oil and let it cool.
  • Serve it with any chutney or jalebi.
