Pepper Thattai Recipe / Milagu Thattai Recipe

   Pepper Thattai Recie

Pepper Thattai / Milagu Thattai is another variation to our regular thattai recipe.This pepper thattai turned out to be so flavourful that even those who are not fond of thattais will love it just like me :) As its Gokulashtami tomorrow, thought to post this pepper thattai that I tried a while back.I have no experience in thattai making but understood that the perfection comes only by practise.I am sure this year my thattais were far better than the ones I made for the first time.

My Notes:

  • Do not forget to prick with fork to avoid puffing up.
  • The more thinnner you press the thattais will be crispier.If you have a thick thattai then it will chewy and not crisp.
  • Cook in low medium flame.
  • The dough should not be too tight.If its tight, then it will crack while pressing.
