Sweets & Savouries



Besan flour – 1 and 1/2 cup

Rice flour – 1 cup

Salt – as needed

Red chilli powder – 1 tsp

Black pepper – 1 tbsp

Garlic – 8 to 10 flakes

Jeera – 1 tbsp

Oil – for deep frying


  1. Take a besan flour in a bowl, add rice flour and salt.

    2. Grind garlic,pepper, jeera and chilli powder in a mixer.

    3. Mix the grounded masala to the flour. Add water little by little and knead to form a dough as shown in picture.

    4. I used the regular 3 eyed thenkuzhal plate for this, you can use the star shaped ones too. Fill the press 3/4th with the dough and squeeze it either directly over the hot oil or over few greased ladles and then carefully flip to the oil. I used the direct way. I squeezed it like a big muruku. This will make our job easier. We can break it later.

    5.Cook both sides until golden in colour in medium flame. Bubbles should be reduced. Take it out and drain in a paper towel. Break into the required shape.Serve!
