Minty Oats Thattai

Seriously i was breaking my head to make some different savoury snacks for Krishna Jayanthi celebration,while going through my pantry i crossed a packet of rolled oats which was sitting quite a long to cook as something, finally i decided to make some thattais with oats, to give them more aroma i tried adding a handful of mint leaves which i grinded as coarse paste with fennel seeds,cumin seeds,garlic,peppercorns and dry red chillies..This thattai tastes super crispy with a wonderful mint flavour and we couldnt stop munching them for our snacks..Give a try friends, am damn sure you wont regret for trying this crispy beauties prepared with oats and mint leaves..

1cup Rice flour
1/2cup Gram flour
1/2cup Oats flour or Rolled oats (grinded as fine powder)
1cup Roasted gram/Pottukadalai flour
1/4cup Channadal (soaked)
1tsp Butter
1/2tsp Asafoetida powder
2nos Dry red chillies
1/2tsp  Fennel seeds
1tsp Peppercorns
2nos Garlic cloves
A handful of Mint Leaves
1tsp Cumin seeds
Oil for deepfrying

Grind the dry red chillies, fennel seeds, peppercorns, garlic cloves,cumin seeds and mint leaves as bit coarse powder..Take this grounded powder along with rice flour,oats flour, gram flour, roasted gram flour,butter,asafoetida powder,salt,soaked channa dal in a large vessel and knead a soft and stiff dough with enough water..

Heat oil for deepfrying, take a golf ball sized dough, line  two  greased baking sheet or ziplock bags in a poori press,arrange the dough between the baking sheets or ziplock bags, give a genlte press to flatten the dough..Drop this flattened thattais to the oil, fry until they turns golden brown, repeat the same process until the dough get finished..

Conserve these thattais in an air tightened box and enjoy!
