Ingredients required

Two cups Multi Millet Flour

♦ 2 Table spoon Butter

♦ 1 Tea spoon Salt

♦ ¼ Tea spoon Asafoetida

♦ 1 Tea spoon chilli Powder

♦ ½ Tea Spoon Turmeric Powder

♦ 2 Table spoon Szechwan Sauce

♦ 1 Tbsp Sesame Seeds

♦ 3 table spoon chopped curry leaves

♦ 2 table spoon soaked and drained chana dal

♦ 2 table spoon Grated coconut

♦ 3 Table spoon Crushed Roasted Peanuts

♦ Oil for Deep Frying

Steps to follow

First step, you need to mix all the ingredients except oil. Make a soft tight dough with water by adding little by little.

♠ Next heat the oil in the pan, then divide the dough into small lemon size balls and flatten them on a greased plastic sheet/parchment paper/banana leaf. Use a flat-bottomed small steel vessel for flattening the dough. This would help in spreading the dough evenly.

♠ Deep fry on the medium heat by flipping sides and once they become crisp remove and then drain the excess oil on a tissue paper.

♠ Store in an air tight container after cooling.
