Mini pepper thattai was in my draft for a long time..This is very easy to make and would be perfect with a hot cup of coffee.
Rice Flour - 2 cups
Urad /Black Gram Dal Flour - 1/4 cup
Coarsely Ground Black Pepper - 3 tsp
Butter - 2 Tbsp
Salt to taste
Chilly powder - 1 tsp
Asafoetida - 1/4 tsp
Oil - for deep frying
Water as required
In a bowl add the rice flour,urad flour,asafoetida,chilli powder,pepper,salt and melted butter.
Mix thoroughly.Add water little by little until it forms a soft dough.The dough should not be very dry.
In a Ziploc bag smear some oil.Make small marble sized balls from the dough.
Pat the ball and flatten it with the tip of your finger to about 1 inch in diameter.Prick the surface with fork to prevent them from puffing up while frying.The ends of the thattai should not crack.If it does,sprinkle little water and mix.
Heat oil in a pan.When hot enough,deep fry them until they are golden brown in color.
Drain with a slotted spoon store them in airtight container.
