Omapodi


Who does like omapodi .I make them often at home .Its awesome to have some omapodi and hot hot chai .No words to say .I make them and try it to store it for a week but does not stay beyond a couple of days ...Temptations are on the sky when we have omapodi at home .. Its a simple recipe and here it goes ...


Raw Marterials Required
Omum (ajwain)-1 tbsp
Besan (gram flour) -1 1/2 cup
Rice flour-1/2 cup
Chilli Powder -1/2 tsp
Hing a couple of pinches
Salt to taste


Preparation Style

Soak omum in warm water for about an hour before preparing the omapodi and grind it along with water.Then strain the grinded liquid and keep the water aside.In a small bowl mix together all the ingredients and knead the dough with omum water.Add enough water so that the dough is more or else similar to the chapati dough or a puri dough. On the other side in a big kadia add oil for deep frying and let it become hot.With the help of the omapodi presser add small portions of dough and squeeze it in small portions into the hot oil . See to that the bubbles calm down and drain the excess oil. Server them with hot chai!!!
