Recipe Source: Suma
1/2cup Rice flour
1/4cup Chickpea flour
1/4cup Urad dal flour
1/2cup Grated cucumber
2tbsp Coriander leaves (chopped)
1tsp Ginger paste
1tsp Chilly paste
1tbsp Hot oil
Pinch of Asafoetida powder
Oil for frying
Take the flours,grated cucumber, chopped coriander, ginger paste, chilly paste and hot oil in a bowl, knead everything as a dough.
No need of adding water, the moisture from the cucumber is quite enough to knead everything as a stiff dough.
Divide the dough as small portions. Grease a plastic sheet and pat a dough ball with your fingers as medium sized disc.
Continue the same process with the remaining dough.
Meanwhile heat the oil for deep frying, once the oil is hot, gently remove the disc from the sheet and drop them to hot oil.
Fry the discs in small batches.
Fry on both sides until they turns golden brown.
Remove with a slotted spoon and drain the excess of oil with a paper towel.
