I wish all my Friends, Relatives, Fellow bloggers and visitors of Chandrabhaga A VERY HAPPY AND COLOURFUL DIWALI.

I tried Thenkuzhal this time and it came out good.

  • Rice flour - 1 cup
  • Gram Flour - 1 cup
  • Salt- as required
  • Butter - 2 tbsp
  • Asafoetida powder - 1/2 tsp
  • Jeera - if necessary
  • Water - as required
  • Oil - for frying
How to make it.
Mix rice flour and gram flour together with butter. Add salt, asafoetida powder and jeera to it. Add water little by little and make it into a soft dough. Fill the Thenkuzhal press with the dough and press it slowly. Do this directly into the hot oil. After 1 minute, turn on to the other side and when it turns light brown take it out onto a paper towel to drain off excess oil. Store in an airtight container.
