Thukkada (துக்கடா)

Hey folks, You must be busy with Navarathri Golu and pooja. We do not have a custom of having golu at home, so we used to visit temples or our friends house where golu is arranged. It is so exciting experience for kids. Last year I shown my daughter for the first time how golu looks, here in temple. She was so excited to know that again it is golu time :))) We used to just make some pooja on saraswathi poojai and vijayadasami days.




So I thought of moving to Deepavali recipies. Here is my first Deepavali snack Thukkada.
Yes, you are reading it right, it is thukkada. One of my childhood favorite it is. We used to get it from one of the bakery in my native. It used to taste awesome. We easily get addicted to its taste. Making this snack is also quiet simple with just a few ingredients. Also it doesn't need much of preparation ahead. Perfect for after school snack or festive snack.

Ingredients:

Maida - 1 cup
salt- as per taste
Chili powder  - 1 tsp (adjust according to your taste)
Water - about 1/4 cup
Oil - 1 tsp
Oil   to deep fry

Preparation:

1. Mix maida, salt, chili powder, by adding water little by little like chapati dough.
2. At last add a tsp of oil and kneed well.
3. Make small balls out of it and roll them into thin chapathi.
4. Cut the rolled chapathi as diamonds and fry them in hot oil until they are puffed, crispy and golden color.

Store them in a air tight container and use.

Notes:

1. Make sure to roll them into thin chapathis. Thick ones will not be crispy and puffy
