Jantikalu (Spicy Rice Flour Fritters)

My dear hubby would generally love these type of Indian snacks rather than eating outside junk.  He was asking me to prepare these for quite a long time but I was a bit lazy to stand in front of the stove for such a lengthy period. Yeah, when I prepare these, I prepare in wholesome quantity as they can be afresh for almost 15 days. 

What I used:

Rice Flour : 3 cups
Roasted gram flour (Putnalu Powder) : 1 cup
Water : 2 cups
Ginger garlic paste : 3 tbsp
Garam masala : 2 tbsp
Red chilli powder : 2 tbsp
Salt : as required
Oil : for deep frying

And of course one muruku presser.

How I did:
  • Take rice flour in a large bowl and add all the ingredients except water and oil.
  • With a spoon mix thoroughly until all the contents are well mixed.  
  • Heat 3 tbsp of oil separately and pour into the mixture and mix.
  • Add water little by little and mix into the mixture to form a dough.  Use your hands to make the dough.
  • Heat oil in a deep pan on medium heat. 
  • Take a ball of dough and fill the muruku presser till 3/4 level of it.
  • In a circular motion, press jantikalu directly into oil taking care not to burn yourselves.
  • No need to flip over the jantikalu. Fry for a few minutes till reddish brown color.  
  • Transfer to a paper tissue to absorb excess.
  • Serve as a snack or a timepass in front of TV.  Store in an air tight container when cooled.
