A fried teatime snack.

Raw rice -----1/2 kg
Roasted urad dal ----- 200gms
Roasted sesame seeds ---------- 2 spoon
50 gms ----- dalda/butter
Salt to taste
Cooking medium for frying


Dry grind the rice and roasted urad dal together in a flour mill.
Sieve the flour. To this add salt and sesame seeds and mix it with butter/dalda and water to make a pliable dough.

Put a fistful of dough in the thenkuzhal extruder( available in the market ), extrude circular patterns in the pre -heated cooking oil and cook till the sound drowns.

Tip: Resting the dough for a longer time yields darker thenkuzhals, so mix the dough and use it immediately to have white thenkuzhals.
