Champakali... a twist in Diwali

This is a savory snack. Before marriage, I used to do these Champakali for so many times. But don't know how it just went out of my mind. Before Diwali one of our relative, 'Nita Vahini' (she is also a good cook) reminded me about this. So I planned to make Champakali on this Diwali. It's shape is very unique. It resembles like 'Aakash Kandil' of Diwali. So tasty and crispy Champakali ……… must try……

Maida (all purpose flour) - 4 cups
Oil - 1 cup
Baking powder - 1/4 teaspoon
Pepper powder - 1 teaspoon
Ajwain - 2 teaspoons
Cumin Powder - 2 teaspoon
Oil for deep frying
Salt to taste

Mix all the ingredients except oil. Heat 1 cup oil and pour into the mixture. Prepare hard dough with little water. Keep aside for half an hour. Roll small Puris of this dough. Now cut into cylindrical length wise keeping the borders intact. Now carefully try to fold using the ends. Seal the ends by pressing with finger tips. Deep fry these champakali on medium flame till it gets golden brown colour.

This is for Purva's Diwali Dhamaka

You will not believe this but just the other day T was telling me about how his mom used to make this. Though I am pretty sure they were the sweet version of this. Do you have the recipe for that as well?
