Jhat Pat

Jhat Pat is one of the best and easy snack appropriate for evenings. It is prepared from Maida.

Today it is drizzling and my hubby and children wanted something to eat hot and crunchy with tea that too home made!! Immediately, I thought to prepare Jhat Pat which is easy and tasty snack. It came out well and everybody liked it. So I am sharing this with you all.

Everybody give a try, as it is prepared with the available ingredients at home.

Ingredients :

Maida / all purpose flour              2 cups

Moong dal                                         3 tsp (soaked for about 30 mins)

Chilli Powder                                   4 tsp

Oil for frying

Water as required

Salt to taste


Method :

In a bowl add maida, soaked moong dhal, chilli powder, 2 tsp oil and salt and mix well.

Now add water as required to prepare the dough.

Divide the dough into big size balls.

In a pan/kadai put oil for frying and heat in high flame.

Take a rolling board and rolling pin.

Take a dough ball, dust flour on the board and roll the dough into thick circle.

To avoid this, try putting a piece of dough into oil if it comes up immediately oil is ready for frying.

Now put the cut pieces into the oil and fry until it is golden brown.
