Thattai is one of the most popular South Indian jar snacks, and one that is used as a benchmark for a person’s cooking prowess. The traditional Thattai is made with a dough of roasted rice flour, a dash of urad flour and a couple of flavourful seasonings. The dough is usually shaped into flat roundels and deep-fried.

This Thattai recipe is a healthier version made with a combination of wholesome flours and urad dal, perked up with the usual seasonings.

Further, we have also cooked the Thattai on a tava instead of deep-frying it. You will be surprised by how tasty and crisp the Thattai turns out to be. Store it in an airtight container and enjoy whenever you wish to.

Though the recipe calls for more than half hr of cooking on tava but this non-fried snack is a great jar snack. Different in taste from the regular puris, this snack was loved by all in my family.
