I made this thattai. It was excellent . My husband's favourite item is this. Thank you very much. I added chilly powder also.
Hi DK I made Thattai as per ur recipe but i used Roasted rice flour instead of the normal one.I also omitted white sesame seeds as I did not have them.The result was a dark brown (instead of the normal golden brown) colour with the same taste.....wanted to show u this..
I alternate between 2-3 oils for frying, but this one is traditional Sesame oil --DK
Cooling it down completely and storing in an air tight container will keep it crispy. But if you live in a cold climate, then I guess its hard to keep it crispy for long! Will get back to you if I get to know of any tips for this. As for Ipad, I have no idea! I don't own once hence havent really figured out that nuance yet--DK
Oh No! Not at all. I try to avoid adding food color/ any other artificial ingredients as much as possible . In case of otherwise, I wud def. mention it in the recipe :) I just deep fried it to a more golden red color. :) --DK
Thanks for such a generous feedback. I am glad you love what you see at Chef In You. Encouragement as this, is what keeps me motivated :) -- DK
You can easily make it hot by adding 1/2-1 tsp chilli powder to the recipe (or as per taste). You can also sprinkle chilli powder on these Thattai's as soon you remove from the oil after frying, while still hot. -- DK
Thanks Nira :). The only explanation I can think of is probably the heat. Keep the oil hot and after dropping the murukkus, reduce to medium. I think the outside cooked faster than the inside. Also make sure that you drop the murukkus as soon as you roll them out with the maker before it dries out - drop it in the oil. I hope this helps. --- DK
Hi Jyothi, I think it should work just as fine...:) Just make sure its not too moist - DK
Dear Pree, This deep frying should not be a problem since it does not cause that much of a smoke to cause fire alarms to break out. I have fire alarms in my house too and till date it has never caused concern. The only precaution I can think of ( since it is your first time) is that 1. Make sure you have the exhaust on 2. Open up any windows or ventilation just in case 3. And also not to keep the oil on v high heat and burning for long without any thattai's in it. Too much high heat without any food frying will also cause the oil to smoke too much causing alarm to go off 4. Keep the oil high and once you place the thattai's reduce it to med. Once fried and once ready for placing the next thattai, increase the heat again. This should help both to have crunchy thattai's along with making sure that oil does not smoke. Otherwise dont you worry - you will surely be able to give a pleasant surprise to your husband :) Good Luck :) Hope this helps ---DK
I am glad you like it Lavanya :) Yes sometimes making Murukkus can be a real hardwork! But they are so worth it arent they ;) That's why I always say, its better if someone else makes them for me :) - DK
