METHOD:

  • Sieve the gram flour and rice flour for even mixing.
  • Dry roast the omam in a pan and soak this for 15 minutes in 1/4 cup of water.
  • Keep the water aside and grind this in a mixer using the soaked water.
  • Normally the omam will not get grind smoothly as it is in a very small quantity.
  • Even if it is slight coarse also ok. Using the remaining soaked water extract the omam water by mashing the ground omam with your hands . filter it using a tea strainer.
  • Use this water to mix the water. If u don’t want to discard the omam nicely mash with hands and add half of it to the flour to make the dough.
step 4 step 6
  • Make a sticky dough by adding 2 tblsp of soft butter or hot oil . add salt to taste. If adding chilli powder add while kneading the dough.
  • Use the small dotted hole one for making omapodi and keep a portion of dough inside the presser and start pressing it into the hot oil by making circles.
step 3 step 7
  • Flip it after sometime . Take out and drain in a kitchen towel when the oil sound subsides.
step 8 step 10
  • When it is cool, break it into pieces and store it in an airtight container.

Omapodi recipe
Note:

  • Do not add too much omam as it will give a bitter taste to the omapodi.
  • If the dough is kneaded tight  or kept open for a long time it will be difficult for you while pressing.

hi, thx for the recipe, look very tempting.
i'm a bit confuse. gram flour is from chick peas flour ? or the smaller chick peas type

Gram is the one we get from grinding the Channa dal. I never tried with chickpeas. You get the besan | kadalimaavu| gram flour in Indian grocery store

For 1cup besan and 1/4 of rice flour you can add 1/2 to 3/4 tsp of omam powder.
