I am a Big Fan of Thattai ,but i couldn't eat it for a long time because its a fried snack.I was sitting at home for Diwali and wondering if i could be able to have thattai without any guilty ,then i saw this gluten free water cracker recipe which is almost same as thattai recipe ,so i thought may be i can use this method to bake thattai instead of frying,so i gave it a go with little modification in baking temperature and replaced the recipe with thattai recipe,surprising to me the outcome was awesome and now i am having baked thattai without guilt ,so i thought why don't i share with you guys if you are avoiding thattai for the same reason as i am so you can also enjoy it.
Ok this thattai will be crunchier but not crispier.To describe both Biscuit is crunchier and potato chips are crispier.
For 1 thattai:
Channa Dal - 1 tbsp
Pottukadalai/ Fried Gram Dal - 1 tbsp
Coconut Pieces cut - 1 tbsp
Curry Leaf - 1 sprig ,chopped finely
Pottukadalai Flour - 1/4 cup
Oil - 1/4 cup for mixing and for basting on thattai while baking.
Salt - as needed
1.Preheat oven to 350 degree.
Add 1/4 cup of water to channa Dal and microwave it for 2 min and keep it aside.
So delicious thattai with just 50 calorie each is ready to serve on diwali.
