Diwali is round the corner and its that time of the year when buying new clothes, cleaning the house and making yummy snacks and sharing them with friends and family. We have amazing memories of this festival when preparations used to start a month ago with cleaning and dusting. We used to plan what all snacks to be made and mom used to make each ones favorite item to balance our demands.
Those were fun days. These days making a couple of them is a big deal, thanks to the hectic life styles and everything available online. People these days are losing interest to make snacks. I feel we all should make something at home to maintain the tradition and leave this thought for the next generation.
Today, I am sharing another version of this yummy snack. Mom makes this traditional snack in a couple of ways. I shared one version here.
Rice Flour: 4 cups
Roasted Gram flour (Potukadalai): 2 cups
Butter: 1/4th cup
Salt to taste
Red Chili powder: 1-2 tbsp.
White Sesame Seeds: 1 tbsp.
Water as needed
Oil for frying
Powder the Roasted Gram Flour, Seive keep aside.
Take a pan add the flours and the sesame seeds, salt and water to make soft dough.The dough should neither be too soft or hard.
Take the mold, grease the star plate. Fill with dough.
Test the oil and when hot press and fry in medium flame till golden brown. Alternatively you can press in plastic sheet or a small plate. Just make sure to grease for smooth shifting in oil.
Do the same for the remaining dough.
Store in an airtight container.
