Recipe
1
Soak 250 grams of rice in water for 4 hours. Drain the water and let it dry for a while. Once dried, grind it into a fine powder.
2
In a pan, dry roast 50 grams of chana dal until it turns golden brown. Grind it into a fine powder.
3
In a large bowl, mix the rice powder, chana dal powder, 1 teaspoon of red chilli powder, 1 teaspoon of cumin seeds, 1 teaspoon of sesame seeds, a pinch of asafoetida, and salt as per taste.
4
Add 2 tablespoons of hot oil to this mixture and mix well.
5
Gradually add water and knead it into a stiff dough.
6
Take small portions of the dough and flatten them on a plastic sheet using your fingers. Make sure they are not too thick or too thin.
7
Heat oil in a pan for deep frying. Once the oil is hot, gently slide the flattened dough into the oil.
8
Fry them on medium heat until they turn golden brown on both sides. Drain them on a paper towel to remove excess oil.
9
Let them cool completely before storing in an airtight container.
