Ingredients to make Jantikalu

  • Raw rice (kachcha chawal)- 3 cups
  • Chutney dal - 1 cup
  • sabudana - 1/2 cup
  • jeera(cumin) - 2 tsp
  • salt to taste
  • Red Chillies (whole) - 4
  • butter - 1 to 1 1/2 tsp
  • asafoetida (hing) - 1/4 tsp

How to make Jantikalu

  1. Grind rice, chutney dal, sabudana , jeera, red chillies, hing and salt in a mixer grinder. Make sure its finely ground!
  2. Add water to make it into a semi solid mixture like puri dough and keep it ready
  3. Take oil in a deep pan and let it become hot
  4. Now release the mixture you HV taken in a mould, into the oil.
  5. Turn over whenever required till they become light brown in colour.
  6. Take them out of the pan in a plate with spread tissue paper. Though not much of oil is absorbed!
  7. Repeat step 4 onwards till the entire dough is used up!
  8. Your hot, crisp and spicy Jantikalu are ready!!
  9. Once they are cool, store them in air-tight containers. It can be stored for more than 15 days!
  10. Can be had as Tea time snacks or just without any reason, when we feel hungry!! Enjoy :)

My Tip:

Ingredients have to be in fine powder form or else, the paste would turn out coarse making Jantikalu hard to chew!!! Add butter only if you want them to be more fluffy!!
