Thattai Recipe - Thattai Murukku - How to make thattai | Krishna Jayanthi Recipes

Thattai Recipe
Thattai / Thattai Murruku is my fav and love to munch it anytime.I wanted to have some savoury snack recipes in this space for the festival season. And my first try is this thattai/ thattai murukku(thattu vadai) as I found it easy. This is the first time I'm trying thattai and I should say I'm totally satisfied with the outcome.
How to make thattai

Thattai Recipe - Ingredients

Preparation Time : 110 mins | Cooking Time : 25 mins | Makes : around 22
Recipe Reference : Jeyashris Kitchen | Recipe Category: Sidedish | Recipe Cuisine: North Indian

Rice Flour - 2 cups
Urad Dhal Flour - 1/8 cup
Pottukadalai (Split Roast Gram Dal) - 1/2 cup
Chana Dal - 1.5 tbsp
Butter - 1.5 tbsp
Red chilli powder - 1 tsp
Hing(Perungayam) - a pinch
Curry leaves - few torn into pieces
White Sesame Seeds - 1/2 tbsp
Water - as needed
Oil - as needed to deep fry
Salt- to taste

Method:

  1. Dry roast rice flour for 2-3mins. Set aside. Then dry roast urad dhal flour for 3mins. Set aside. Soak channa dal in water till immersing level for 30mins. After that drain water and keep the channa dhal aside.

  2. Dry roast potukadalai for 2-3mins. Cool down and grind it to a fine powder. Now in a mixing bowl add rice flour, urad dhal flour, powdered gram flour, butter, channa dal, coconut(if you are adding),sesame seeds,chilli powder, salt and hing. Mix well until all is combined.

  3. Now add water little by little to form a soft dough. Be careful in adding water. Take a ziploack bag or a plastic cover grease it with oil. Take a lemon sized ball and flatten it using your palms first.

  4. Then press it with your fingers till it is thin. Carefully take it from the plastic sheet and keep aside. Do this for the remaining dough. The more the thinner, the thattais will be crispier. You can also press it using the back of a tumbler. Prick the thattais with a fork to avoid puffing up.

  5. Heat oil, keeping in medium flame carefully drop the thattais and seep fry until golden brown. Cool down, drain in a tissue paper and then store in an airtight container.

This is the first time I am trying so halved the recipe and got around 20 thattais. You can double the quantity too. I didnt get perfect round shapes for all thattais but guess it will come by practice.The thattais were so flavourful even after 2 days and crispness remained the same too. This is sure a easy snack for begineers like me so do try this for diwali and let me know the feedback.
Thattai Murukku

My Notes:

  • Adding coconut is optional but sure gives a nice flavour . You can also few peanuts as in shops.
  • Only pressing is time consuming else making thattais was just a breeze. I took the shortroute for pressing and it sure was less time consuming also you could get perfect round shapes.
  • Make sure you press them thinner in either ways - as I had mentioned, the more thinner the more crispier your thattais will be.

  14. Looks yummy and I make it similarly too. Nice idea of cutting using the lid as I normally flatten out each one and that is time consuming.

  27. i just tried ur thatai but they were hard to bite plz let me know where i made the mistake

    ReplyDelete
  28. @Shameema : I guess it might be because of the thick thattais or the butter must not have been evenly distributed.....the thin ones will always be crispier and light. Hope this helps!

    ReplyDelete
  29. made these and they turned out good.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Can u please clarify hpw to measure 1/8 cup....

    ReplyDelete
  31. @Pinky : Half of 1/4 cup is 1/8 cup.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Thanks for the clarification! Got the recipe right but had some difficulties to shape. My mom said that i should have used ready-made idiyapam flour instead using dry rice flour.

  35. Hi sharmilee.. Thanks for posting this recipe. The thattais came out awesome.. I was not able to roll it out with a rolling pin(don't know why??). They were sticking to the greased plastic sheet so i flattened it in the inside of my palm. Thanks again :))

    ReplyDelete
  36. Is it possible to use the red rice flour instead of the white rice flour

    ReplyDelete
  37. Hi,

    I am a big fan your website. This recipe is really nice. Just to add a tip. After making the balls to make thattai, if you press it with stainless steel bowl (grease it with oil) with flat bottom, it will
    make the job more easy and thattai will come out very thin.

    Keep up the good work.

    Thanks.

  38. @Bhavani : Thanks a lot Bhavani! I have given the same tip in the steps too....:)

  39. i prepared it yesterday and everybody liked the taste. I used thin cotton cloth, dhothi instead of plastic sheet as thattai will not stick in cloth and can be removed easily.

  41. @Meenal: If the thattais are not thin...it will be hard..try to make it as thin as possible
