Some years back I watched in a television channel, a famous chef doing Thattai with Rice flour and Roasted gram flour instead of Rice four and Urad dhal powder. Thattai is a traditional crispy snack that tastes yummy. I tried it at home and came out very well. Easy to make and the thattais came out crispy and fluffy in golden brown colour. Try this easy Thattai for this festival season..
