Janthikalu
Instructions
  1. Mix the flours, sesame seeds, chili and cumin powders, ghee, salt together.
  2. Add just enough water to make a thick batter. Make sure that the batter is not too watery or too thick.
  3. Using a spoon, fill the mold with the batter.
  4. Heat oil till very hot. Press the mold over the hot oil and try to make concentric circles, so that the batter drops in the oil in circular coils.
  5. Fry till janthikalu turn golden brown. You might have to flip them once to fry uniformly on both sides.
  6. Remove with a slotted spoon on to a paper lined plate to remove any excess oil.
  7. Let cool and you can store in an air-tight container for up to 10 days.
