Kaarapoosa

After longtime I am eating this snack. This is on my wish list from a long time. But I don’t have the required and the murruku press we use to make them. Finally I found one when I met a neighbor. She was very generous and I borrowed one. And then evolved this snack I am starving of. The thin strings elevate our jihva to eat more of them and we cannot just eat some we stuff in a lot more.

Ingredients:

Gram flour……………..1 cup

Rice flour………………..11/2 cup

Butter/oil………………..2 tbsp

Salt……………………….to taste

Ginger-chili paste………2 tsp

Jeera…………………………..1tsp (or) ajwain………………………..1tsp

Oil…………….for frying

Method:

  1. Heat oil in a deep frying pan
  2. Mix all the listed ingredients in water to make soft dough.
  3. Put into kaarapoosa press and just squeeze into hot oil in circular shapes.
  4. Deep fry till they turn golden brown.
  5. Brain and cool on paper towel.
  6. Store in air-tight tins when cool
  7. Enjoy with your evening cup of chai.

Note: Mix the dough when your r ready to fry them don’t make it in advance .Even while making cover it with a wet -cloth helps to keep in the moisture.
