This is a tasty south indian snack. We can have many variations of this by adding the spices that suit your taste but this recipe is in its original.

  • 2 cups Rice Flour (I use Nirapara brand)
  • 1/4 cup Urad dal Flour (Store bought)
  • 2 tbsp Fried Gram dal Flour (Pottu Kadalai Podi)
  • 1 tsp Sesame seeds
  • 2 tbsp Channa dal
  • 2 tbsp yellow Moong dal
  • 1 tbsp Butter
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 1 tsp Asafoetida
  • 1 tbsp Coconut Oil
  • Oil to deep fry

  1. Soak the Channa dal and Moong dal for an hour.
  2. Sieve all the flours and mix them along with salt, asafoetida, sesame seeds, soaked dals and butter. Add water little by little to make it into a soft but firm dough.
  3. Grease a zip lock cover with little oil. Take a small ball of the dough and flatten it using your palm and then place it on a clean cloth or newspaper.
  4. Once you have made the Thattai, heat oil in a kadai/ wok. To test the oil add a pinch of the dough and it should sizzle up immediately. Now fry the  Thattai on medium heat and in small batches. Once done, cool them and store in an air tight container.
  • You may add a few Curry Leaves, Chilli Powder or Pepper Powder or any other spice that suits your taste.
