Easy,Nellai famous thukkada recipe


Spicy thukkada recipe Easy,spicy Nellai famous thukkada recipe for Diwali !
Cuisine: Indian
Category: Savory
Serves: 50 nos
Prep time: 5 Minutes
Cook time: 15 Minutes
Total time: 20 Minutes


INGREDIENTS

  • Wheat flour/Atta – 1 cup 
  • Red chilli powder – 1 tsp ( heaped ) Levelled for low spice 
  • Water and salt-As needed  
  • Hot oil or melted butter – 1 tsp (optional,I dint use) 
  • Hing -  a big pinch

METHOD

  • In a wide bowl,take the wheat flour,salt,red chilli powder n oil(optional) .Mix well,Then add water little by little and make a tight dough.( Add water carefully.If u make the dough sticky n soft,u won't get crispy thukkada & also do not add more flour if the dough becomes sticky,thukkada will become very hard).

    Let the dough sit for 10 minutes.Then make uniform balls,dust with wheat flour and roll it like a thin chapathi.Use a knife or pizza cutter and cut into diamonds or squares.Place all the pieces in a news paper.No problem if the pieces stick to each other.It will separate while frying.

    Heat oil and deep fry them in batches till bubbles cease completely.U will get golden brown thukkada.Remove in a tissue and let it cool.Deep fry all the batches uniformly.If u don’t fry one batch properly,it will become soggy  and it will spoil the entire snack.
    thukkada-3
    Store in a box n enjoy with tea or coffee! It stays good for months if properly done.






Note

  • U can replace red chilli powder by garlic,chilli paste.To make this paste,grind 5 cloves of garlic along with 4-5 red chillies to a smooth paste.
  • The most important thing to make perfect thukkada lies in the dough.If the dough is too soft n sticky,thukkada will become either hard or soggy.So make the dough tight & perfect.Do not use more flour for dusting.Dust once or twice.

ENJOY THIS SPCIY THUKKADA WITH TEA/COFFEE ! ITS ADDICTIVE !
