Ingredients to make Jantikullu

  • Rice flour 1 cup
  • Gram flour/ besan 1 cup
  • Carom /ajwain seeds 1/2 tbsp
  • chilly powder 1/4 to 1/2 tsp
  • asafoetida/hing 2 generous pinches

How to make Jantikullu

  1. In a large mixing bowl measure and sieve rice flour and besan. Add chilly powder, hing, salt and ajwain. Mix well.
  2. Add hot oil. Give this a nice mix. Add water little by little. Make a soft dough. Cover the dough and let it rest for 20minutes.
  3. Heat sufficient oil for deep frying Jantikulu in a wide kadai. Use a chakli maker with 3hole plate. Take a portion of dough and fill the chakli maker. Press to check if the dough is smooth and comes out easily. If not add little water and mix well.
  4. Press the dough in circular motion in oil directly moving from outer end to centre. This will look like a single large chakli (refer pic). Fry till golden colour on one side then flip and fry other side.
  5. Transfer on kitchen paper. After cooling, store in an airtight container as it is. While serving, it can be broken into small pieces.

My Tip:

Spices level can be adjusted according to one's preference. For garlic flavour, add finely minced garlic paste in dough. Ajwain can be replaced with cumin seeds.
