A fried South Indian snack.


A fried South Indian snack.



  1. In a wide bowl mix together maida, Bombay rava, hot ghee, salt, chilli powder. Add enough water to knead to a stiff dough.

  2. Shape them into big round portions and roll out like a chapathi/ tortilla. Using a pizza cutter cut them into diamonds – cut them diagonally first into semi wide strips and then again in the other direction.

  3. Deep fry them in hot oil over medium flame till golden as seen in the picture. Do not fry them to too dark a color too as they will not taste as good. Drain on paper towels.

  4. Let them come to room temperature and store in an airtight container!


A variation to this is a sweet-spicy version which is very addictive.. Skip the chilli powder and instead add a little (a tbsp or two or to taste) powdered sugar and some fresh green chillies paste when kneading the dough. Fry as above and store in an airtight container.
