• Rice flour - 1 1/2 cups
  • Besan - 1/4 cup
  • Moong Flour - 1/4 cup
  • Urad Flour - 1 tsp
  • Chilli powder - 1 tbsp
  • Salt - as required
  • Asafoetida - 1 tsp
  • Ajwain seeds - 1 1/2 tsp
  • Water - for kneading
  • Oil - for frying
  • Plastic sheet or wax paper

How to make it:

Dry roast moong dal until it turns light brown and grind into a fine powder. Dry roast rice flour and besan until warm ( do not over heat). Let it cool. Heat oil in a deep bottom pan. In a bowl, mix all the flour, chilli powder, salt, ajwain and asafoetida. Add water and knead into a soft dough. Add few tbsp of hot oil while kneading. This gives a crispier snack. Take a ball of dough and fill the mould with a single star plate. Lay a wax paper or a greased plastic sheet. Press the handle of the mould and slowly make the desired shape. Drop into the hot oil and fry until golden brown. Take onto a paper towel to drain excess oil. You can even directly press the dough into the oil ( no proper shape in this case, but the taste is same :) ) Enjoy!
