Ingredients to make JANTIKALU

  • Rice flour- 1 glass
  • besan - 1 glass
  • Ajwain (vam) - 1 tsp
  • White chilli powder (chema mirapkai gunda) - 1/4 tsp or to taste
  • salt - 1/2 tsp or to taste
  • oil- 1 tsp
  • oil for Deep frying

How to make JANTIKALU

  1. Mix all the ingredients in a mixing bowl except the oil. Add 1 tsp of hot oil. Add water and make a semi-tight dough. Keep it covered for 5 minutes.
  2. Heat oil in a wide kadai in high flame. Make a portion of the dough and put it in a Jantikulu maker which has 3 holes about 3 mm wide. Test for the dough consistency by pressing. If it is difficult, add additional water to the dough.
  3. In one go, shoot out the entire content of the Jantikulu maker in the oil by moving it from the periphery to inside and where ever gaps are seen. A big single muruku like structure will be formed.
  4. After golden colour, turn over and fry the other side. Remove using a big colander like spatula (sataram) and keep on paper napkins.
  5. With the remaining dough, make jantikulu. Around 5 to 6 jantikulu can be made with medium glass measurement.
  6. After cooling, store in an airtight container as is. While serving, it can be broken into fragments.

My Tip:

a) If white chilli powder is not available, use green chilli paste, pepper powder or red chilly powder as alternatives. b) To begin with, try making a small size jantikulu carefully in the oil.
