THATTAI


This is a savoury biscuit deep fried,and a 

famous snack of South India.It’s easy to 

make with store bought rice flour itself,but

you have the option of homemade rice 

flour .I learnt this from a dear friend.

The same friend came home one evening

and I just put the whole container with 

these thattai.(we had no formalities of

serving on a plate).As our chat was going 

on, the level of thattai was going down 

which no one noticed.When her fingers 

reached the base ,she realised it’s over.She 

said it was very tasty ,not knowing it was 

her recipe.So folks, I thought I should 

share this recipe with you all.Dedicated to  

my friend!
