Besan Omapodi

     This is traditional recipe only which is already known to most. I had earlier posted Ragi Omapodi recipe which was received well. This is normal beasan based omapodi. This is a very good beginner recipe to those who are trying festival snacks for 1st time.

Recipe Cuisine : South Indian | Recipe Category: Snacks
Preparation Time: 20 mins  | Cooking Time: 20 mins

Besan Flour / Kadalai maavu
1 cup
Rice Flour
¼ cup
Ajwain / Omam
1 tsp
1 tbsp
To taste
As required
For deep fry the sev

1. Dry roast the ajwain at medium flame till nice aroma comes out.
2. Allow it to cool down completely. Then grind it into a coarse powder using dry mixie jar.
3. Then soak the powdered ajwain in warm water for 15 mins. Then strain the ajwain water using the strainer. Keep it aside.
4. In a wide bowl, add besan flour, rice flour, butter and salt. Mix them well with your fingers.
5. Now add ajwain water (from 3) and required normal water to knead a soft and smooth dough.
6. Then grease your omapodi press (design with small holes) with oil. Fill ¾th of the press with dough (from 5).
7. Meanwhile, heat the oil in a deep fry pan, till it becomes hot or put a pinch of dough into the oil. If the dough comes up immediately, then this is the correct stage of oil heating.
7. Press the dough in the oil like circular layer to fill the oil. You should not press more than one layer.
8. If it is cooked one side and turn over into other side using the ladle. Cook until the bubbles sound stops completely.
9. Take it out from the oil and drain it using the tissue paper. Repeat this for remaining dough also. Allow it to cool down completely and store it in an air tight container for later use.
           Yummy and kids snack is ready to serve with tea.

1. You can add red chilli powder and asafoetida also.
