Thattai



Ingredients


1 cup besan (gram flour)

1/4 cup rice flour

1/4 cup all purpose flour (maida)

1 tsp red chilli powder

1 tsp kayam podi (asafoetida)

salt to taste

a few curry leaves (chopped)

1-2 tsp channa dal

Oil for deep frying

Method

Soak the channa dal for 15-20 mins in warm water.


Sieve together besan, rice flour & maida. Add all the other ingredients including the channa dal & knead into a firm dough without using too much water.


Heat oil in a frying pan. Divide the dough into small lime sized balls.

Grease your palm with some oil. Place a ball of dough on the palm of your hand & press into a thin circle.


Carefully slide this into the hot oil & fry on medium heat till both sides are golden brown & crisp.

Remove & drain excess oil on a paper towel.

Store in an airtight container.
