This is a traditional snack made on Gokulashtami. It is salty and there is another sweet version of this. I will be posting it soon.
My husband likes this snack a lot and i was searching for a nice and easy recipe for this snack. Recently, i saw this in Jeyashri's Blog and didn't give a second thought. Gave it a try and it was really great. Thanks to Jeyashri for the recipe.
By tasting them my husband's verdict was "it is very nice and crispy". My little daughter didn't like it much, as it was bit hard for her to bite :) But we all enjoyed it. Will be making it again as the first batch is already finished :)
Very crispy and tasty snack. Try out friends and you will know how easy and simple it is.
Recipe Source: Jeyashriskitchen
1 cup Rice flour
1 tbsp Urad dal flour
2 tbsp Coconut (grated)
2 tbsp Butter
1/2 tsp Sesame seeds
1/2 tsp Jeera/cumin seeds
Salt to taste
Oil for deep frying
Water as required
Method to make urad dal flour: Dry roast urad dal till golden colour. Cool and grind it into fine powder.
- Dry roast rice flour for 1 - 2 minutes on medium flame. Make sure that it doesn't change colour.
- Take off from heat and sieve it. Again dry roast the sieved rice flour for 1 - 2 minutes and sieve it again. Keep this aside to cool.
- Put the urad dal flour into the roasted rice flour and sieve it again. Transfer it into a bowl.
- Dry roast grated coconut till it slightly changes its colour. Put it into the bowl along with the rice and urad flour.
- Dry roast sesame seeds and cumin seeds. When it slightly changes its colour, transfer it into the bowl.
- Add salt and butter to the bowl. Mix well.
- Add water little by little and knead it into a smooth and soft dough. It should not be too thick or too soft.
- Grease your hands with little oil. Take small portions from the dough and roll it between your palms to form small balls. Place them on a newspaper.
- Heat oil in a kadai on medium flame. When the oil is hot, drop the balls into it. Fry them till they turn golden colour. Do the same procedure with the rest of the balls.
- Transfer them on a tissue paper or kitchen towel.
- Serve or store it in an airtight container. It will stay fresh for a long time.
- While rolling into small balls, don't roll them too hard. Roll them gently.
- While frying the balls, don't fry them on high heat as the inside will remain raw. So keep the flame in low and let it fry till the insides are also nicely done.
