This a wholesome snack. A little effort is needed, but the end result will be very satisfying.
2 Cups Rice floor
¼ cup urad dal
½ cup fried grams(dalia, pottu kadalai)
¼ cup ground nut(pea nut)
¼ cup coconut-grated
1 tsp red chilli powder
1 tsp salt
½ tsp asafetida
2 tsp til seeds(sesame)
½ tsp cumin seeds
Few curry leaves
· Microwave the rice floor for 2 minutes or sauté in empty pan to remove moisture, if any. Allow it to cool.
· Fry urad dal to light brown colour. Powder urad dal together with pea nut and fried gram
< · In a wide mouth bowl, mix rice floor, salt, sesame seeds, grated coconut and asafetida well. In this add the powdered peanut-fried gram-urad dal. Add 6 tsp hot cooking oil and mix all these contents. Now add water to make a soft dough.
Rounding up: Heat the cooking oil in a frying pot. Take a small quantity of the mixed dough, make it a ball and flatten into circular thattais of desired size. Better pre-prapare the thattais to be fried to make enough for each frying batch. As one batch is frying next batch to be fried will be ready. Take the fried thattai from the pot when it turns light brown. Pat dry oil or strain.
Note: One can try making the thattai in oven, but at a discount to taste since oil without doubt enhances it.
