          Thattai is a  savory snack. Thattai is my favorite snack often made at  gokulashtami or diwali. I tried to make Thattai  from scratch after few experiments   to replicate the store bought taste and  finally succeeded in making this recipe which taste on par with the store bought ones. Try it out and let me know..

Serving for 4(30 nos)


Boiled Riceflour --2 cups( soak for 3 hours)
Urad dal flour  -- 4 tsp( dry roast and powdered)
Roasted bengal gram flour - 4 tsp
Channal dal -- 3 tsp
Tapioca  -- 2 tsp ( soak channa dal and tapioca)
Red chilli -- 4 nos
Garlic  -- 4 tsp
Crushed black pepper -- 2 tsp
Sesame seeds - 1 tsp
Jeera --2 tsp
Curry leaves
Butter --1/2 tsp

  • Soak the rice with garlic and chilli.
  • Grind the rice mixture  into a pasty dough after draining the water .Make sure it come out like a  watery dough.
  • Add urad flour,split peas flour and soaked dal and tapioca with butter.
  • Knelt into a dough with  black pepper ,jeera ,hing ,salt and curry leaves .
  • Place the dough in a paper towel or cloth to drain excess liquid.
  • Make the dough into small circular ball.Use the tortilla press with ziplock for thin  thattai. You can use a heavy pan to press the circular dough between the zip lock to get circular thattai.
  • Thaw it in a paper towel to take out excess mositure.( longer u thaw crispy it gets)
  •  Fry them one by one in hot oil.
  • The oil should be hot at first and then reduce the flame to medium heat and allow to cook for a while until oil becomes clear with no bubbles.
  • Take it out and drain the oil to  store it in a air tight container .

  • Grind the rice throughly with no lumps into smooth paste.
  • Can add crushed peanuts for taste.
  • Dont add too much of urad dal and split peas flour it will make thattai  chewy in the middle.
