Method of Preparation:
Cook the mung dal to a paste like consistency. In a big bowl add rice flour, mung dal paste, turmeric, salt, chili powder, carom seeds or cumin seeds. Mix lightly. Heat 2tsp oil and add the sizzling hot oil to the rice flour mix. Add water as needed to make a stiff dough. Knead thoroughly with hand.
Take a lemon size dough and place it in a chakli mould or mould with star nozzle. Heat oil for frying. Test the oil by dropping a small piece of dough and wait for 3 seconds if it does not rise to the top then oil needs to be heated more. Gently make a spiral with the chakli mould and deep fry to a golden brown. Cool completely before storing in an airtight container.
