Tukkudi as we call it in Mangalore, has always been my favourite 'any time munching itty bits'... I never tried to make it until now. This is a very simple recipe and takes just over 10 minutes of your time. As the temperature is falling to single digit, its a great snack to cook and store and its a must-must with a hot 'n strong cup of coffee...

1 cup Plain flour(Maida)
1 tbsp Red chilli powder(acc to taste)
1 tsp Jeera/Cumin seeds
1 tsp Ghee(optional)
Salt to taste
Oil for deep frying

Tukkudis -a small bites
Mix the above ingredients with a little water and knead into a soft dough.
Divide dough into equal parts and roll out into thick chappatis.
Cut with a cookie cutter or knife into small diamond shapes.
Deep fry in oil over slow flame till light golden brown.
Drain well and keep aside till cool.
Store in clean, dry containers.
