Now that summer holidays have started, kids might want something to snack often. So here I am with a very simple Omapodi recipe which can be prepared easily with ingredients available at home. You do not need much ingredients for making this delicious snack. Moreover every house will be having besan, so no need to go hunting for ingredients. Today we will learn how to make omapodi following this easy recipe with step wise pictures.
Before going to the recipe, here is a picture of muruku maker. You have to use the plate with many holes for making omapodi.
Grind red chilli, hing and carom seeds together with little water. Filter it and keep it aside.
Take besan in a bowl, add the ground filtered
paste water, a tsp of ghee, salt needed and make a soft dough by adding water little by little.(See Pic -1)
Make a small cylinder with the dough and put it inside the muruku maker. Heat oil, when the oil is hot, reduce the heat to medium, then press the muruku maker in a circular motion over the hot oil.(To check if the oil is hot, just drop a small piece of dough and if it comes to the surface immediately, then the oil is hot enough to make muruku/omapodi)
Once you have squeezed enough dough as in picture 3, stop pressing the muruku maker. Fry both sides until golden brown. Can you see bubbles in picture 3.
Once it is done, the bubbling noise stops. Omapodi is done. Remove it with a slotted ladle and strain it in a colander.
Repeat the same process for the rest of the dough.
After it cools, store it in an airtight container and enjoy.It has a self life of 10-12 days.
