Oma Podi

This is one easy peesy snack you can make on weekends. It is actually used for making south indian savory mixture. It also can be eaten as such.
Caution : Deep fried Snack. Once in a while its ok.. chill.
Recipe Source : MIL


·         Gram flour – 2 cups
·         Omam / Ajwain – 1 tsp (dry roasted and powdered)
·         Rice flour – 2 tsp
·         Salt to taste
·         Water as required
·         Oil for deep frying

Preparation :

Sift the gram flour to remove the clumps if any

Dry roast the Omam seeds and make it into nice powder. You can powder a big batch to get a smooth texture and it can be stored for future use.

Heat the oil in a deep frying pan.
In a wide bowl, add 2 cups of gram flour, 1 tsp powdered omam, 2 tsp rice flour.

Add salt and 1 tbsp of heat oil from the deep frying pan and mix well.
Add water little by little and make the mixture as soft ball. When it is flour mixture is hard, it is difficult to press, so I make it lil loose.
Grease the murukku press. Put this flour mixture in the murukku press, and directly press it in oil. Don’t overdo in the same place, as it will not be crispy.

Flip both sides and cook. Since the murukku is very thin, It cooks very fast. 30 secs each side is fine.
Store it in airtight container in a warm place.
