Teen kona nimki is mainly prepared during Durga Puja and served on the day of Vijayadashami. Due to the triangular shape I used call it ‘samosa without stuffing’ :P.
No you don’t need any occasion to munch these triangular beauties. Whenever you get some free time you have to follow the below procedure of making Triangular Nimki and store them to satisfy your evening cravings with tea!
If you are planning to store the nimkis it is very important to cool them after frying otherwise hot nimki in an airtight container will leave vapor and make the inside environment moist, thereby the nimkis won’t remain crunchy and crispy.
