Gwarmari is an interesting and very easy Newari Food Recipe ( a sub-category of Nepalese Cuisine). These are made from flour made into a good paste and then fried. It is best preferred with tea in the morning, but you may even have it with curry and pickles too.


  1. Wheat Flour
  2. Baking Powder
  3. Turmeric Powder
  4. Cumin & Coriander powder
  5. Ginger
  6. Garlic
  7. Cooking Oil
  8. Salt


Mix wheat flour, baking powder, turmeric, cumin, coriander, ginger, garlic and salt in a deep bowl
Stir the mixture properly till all get mixed
Pour water to into the mixture stirring it continuously
See that you get a good paste of the mixture (the paste should be medium - neither too thin nor thick, it should drop easily onto the pan while cooking)
Keep the mixture for about 5 hours to get good taste (you can cook it immediately also)

Heat the pan pour the oil, let the oil heat nicely (make sure that the mixture dough when cooking deep into the oil)
Take about a table spoon of the mixture and drop into the hot oil. You can cook several of them at a time.
See that all the doughs puff up
Fry till they all become brown.
Take those brownies out and soak the oil in a towel or a paper.

Serve hot Gwarmari with achar, tarkari or tea!!!
