How to Make Pista crispies

  • Mix all the ingredients thoroughly, except pista and oil.
  • Now add pista to the above mix, add 1 tsp of hot oil, and sprinkle very little water. Mix thoroughly so that every nut is coated with the flour mix nicely. Check salt and drop the coated pista (separate them with fingers while dropping into medium hot oil) and fry till light golden. Remove on to a paper napkin to absorb excess oil. Serve this snack with hot tea.
