Moti channa / Gram flour spice Sticks


This was a crunchy snack made with the gram flour and spices .This is similar to the karasev of Tamilnadu with some difference in the ingredients.

  It will be perfect snack for tea time as well as during rainy season. 

I made in a small amount , so it will be easy to make.

Requirements :
Gram flour / Besan flour – 2 cup
Chilli powder – 2 tbs
Ajwain / carom seeds – ½ tbs
Salt as required
Oil – 2 tbs
Asafetida a pinch
Water – 1 cup + ½ cup ( optional )
Oil for frying

Method :
 In a bowl , mix the gram flour , ajwain , salt , chilli powder , asafetida together.
Sprinkle little water at a time and make a soft and sticky dough.
Add in the 2 tbs of oil and mix well.
I used murukku press to make this , perforated laddle can be used .

Fill the dough in the murruku press and press directly into the hot oil.
Cook in the medium flame till golden brown.
Take out of the oil and let it cool.

Break into small pieces or keep it as large ones.

Store the motichanna in airtight container.
Motichannas are ready to serve.
