Thattai is festival snacks in Tamil Nadu.This Green chilli thattai is very popular in Adyar Grand Sweets.
Yield 18 thattai.
Rice Powder – 200 gram
Urad dhal – 1 tbspn
Channa dal – 1tbspn
Asofeotida – ¼ tspn
Green chilli – 3 nos
Salt- needed qty
Butter – 1 ½ tbspn
Roast urad dhall in a low flame until light brown and then powder it.
Grind green chillies with less than half glass of water (50ml)
Soak channa dhall for one hour
In a bowl mix all the ingredients (Rice powder, urad dhall powder, soaked channa dhall,ground green chilli,
uppu,asofeotida) and add required amount of water to make a dough.
Make small gooseberry size balls from the dough and flatten it on a plastic sheet (I used Cornflakes Packet)
Heat the oil in a pan and fry the thattai on a medium heat.
Instead of green chilli you can use red chilli or black pepper.
Instead or asafetida you can use fennel seed or garlic. Adding curry leaves, gives more flavor to the thattai
