ABOUT Thattai - A South Indian Crispy Snack RECIPE

Thattai is a crispy snack made during Diwali in our home. During Diwali my mother used to make lots of Murukkus, Thattais and sweets and stock for a month. We used to distribute sweets and snacks to near and dear ones. And we also give them to those who visit us also.
