  • 1 cup rice flour
  • 3 tablespoons pottukadalai flour
  • 4 teaspoon butter cold
  • 2 tablespoons peanuts
  • 2 teaspoons white sesame seeds
  • 1/4 teaspoon black peppercorns
  • salt to taste
  • Oil for deep frying


  • Dry roast sesame seeds and peanuts.
  • Grind to a coarse powder (just pulse once or twice) along with black peppercorns.
  • Heat oil for deep frying.
  • In a mixing bowl, take rice flour, pottukadalai flour, ground pepper-sesame,salt, asafoetida, cold butter. Add 2 tablespoons hot oil. Mix well
  • Add water little by little and make a soft yet firm dough. If the dough is very soft, thattai will turn soggy. If the dough is very stiff,thattai will break while pressing.
  • Divide the dough into equal sized balls. I used a tablespoon as measurement.
  • Take one ball and press into thin thattai. Press with fork here and there. Press about 15 portions at a time and spread on clean cloth or greased plate. Fan dry for 3-5 minutes.
  • By now oil will be hot. Slide 2-3 thattai based on the size of your pan.
  • Deep fry until golden brown from both the sides until the bubbling sound of the oil ceases.
  • Repeat the same with whole batch of dough. Allow to col completely and save milagu thattai airtight until serving.
