Rice flour - 1 cup
Slightly dry roasted urad dal flour-1 tbsp
(I used the store bought)
Melted butter-1 tbsp
Salt-1/2 tsp or to taste
Curry leaves finely chopped - few
Crushed black pepper - 1 tsp
Crushed or chopped peanuts and cashew nuts - together 2 tbsp
Water - required amount
Oil-to deep fry
Take a wide bowl add all the above ingredients except oil.
Add water little by little & mix to form a tight dough.
Grease a plastic sheet with oil , take a small ball of dough & place it on the sheet.
Grease your fingers with oil & press them to a thin disc. I usually prick it with a fork for even frying to avoid puffing while frying. This step is totally optional.
Heat oil in a pan slide each disc carefully into the hot oil. Deep fry them till crisp & brown on both sides in medium high flame.
Remove them on a paper towel to remove excess oil.
Cool them completely & store it in an air tight container.
a) Instead of butter you can even add hot oil..
b) Do not fry in very high flame, try to adjust the temperature while frying.
f) Keep the dough covered to avoid drying.
