Ingredients to make Thattai - A South Indian Crispy Snack

  • Rice flour - 2 cups
  • Roasted Ured Dhal flour - 2 tablespoon
  • red chilli powder - 1 teaspoon
  • asafoetida - 1/4 teaspoon
  • Channa Dhal - 1 tablespoon
  • butter - 2 tablespoon
  • ,salt - as needed
  • water - for making the dough
  • oil - for deep frying

How to make Thattai - A South Indian Crispy Snack

  1. Soak channa dhal for 1 hour in water.
  2. Mix rice flour,ured dal flour, asafoetida, red chilli powder, salt, butter at room temperature and the soaked channa dhal well.
  3. Add water little by little to make a thick and smooth dough.
  4. Take a piece of plastic paper, spread oil in the paper, make small ball of the flour, and keep it in paper.
  5. Grease the fingers with oil and press the ball to flatten it. The thattai should be really thin and prick the thattai with fork in many places. Otherwise thattai will puff like pooris.
  6. Heat oil in a pan and carefully take the thattai from plastic sheet and slide into the oil.
  7. Fry till both the sides are cooked well and crispy.
  8. Drain the thattai in a colander and store them in a box when cooled.
  9. Your tasty and crispy thattai is ready.

My Tip:

To make ured dhal flour, dryroast ured dal until nice aroma rises and then cool down, grind to a fine powder.Pricking the thattai makes the oil penetrate to the inner portion of the thattai and thus helps in cooking the inner portion well. If the inner portion of thattai is not cooked, then the thattai will be chewy if you miss the pricking, then the thattai will puff like a poori.
