Pearl millet / Kambu Thattai

                      I am so happy to post this recipe, this is my innovation on using millets instead of rice on snacks items.
But there is no compromise on taste, even no one found it until i tell them that it is made up of pearl millet, but the color bit differs from rice thattai and pearl millet thattai...
I have bought the pearl millet, washed it well, sundried and grinded it in the Flour Mill.


Pearl Millet flour  - 4 cup
Urud dal - 1/2 cup + 2 tsp
Curry leaves - few
Roasted gram dal - 1 tbsp.
Chilly powder - 1 tsp
Sesame seed - 1 tsp
Salt to taste
Ghee - 1 tbsp
Oil to deep fry


Dry roast Urud Dal and grind it to fine powder.

Dry roast roasted gram dal and keep aside.

Mix Pearlmillet, urud dal, roasted gram dal, curry leaves,sesame seed, chilly powder, Ghee and salt.

Add little by little water and make a non sticky smooth dough, be careful in adding water.

Separate and make a small round balls (Gooseberry size) and pat it to flat thattai. This can be done by placing the rounded small ball dough in banana leaf or in greased plastic cover.

Prick with fork before frying the flat thattai and Deep fry it in oil.
