Cholafali

I think most of you are reading this name for the first time:). Same thing happened with me when I tasted this first time at one of my Gujrathi friend's house. Cholafali tastes like papad because it is made up of Chana dal and Urad dal. I like the taste and crispyness of Cholafali .

Ingredients

Besan (Chana dal flour) - 1cup

Urad dal flour - 1/2 cup

Oil - 1 teaspoon

Red chilli powder - 1 teaspoon

Cooking soda - a pinch

Normal salt & Black salt to taste

Procedure

Boil 1/2 cup of water and add oil, salt and soda into it. When water gets warm, knead a dough. Keep aside for 15 minutes. Make small balls of dough and roll out very thin rotis of it. Cut it in to strips. Deep fry in oil on medium flame. Sprinkle red chilli powder and black salt on it. Store it in a airtight container. While serving , serve it with green pudina chutney.

This goes to Divya's Sunday Snacks - Healthy Snacks event

Thanks a lot for the response girls!!!!!
@Ramya- I am sending this to Divya's event now.
@Sra - ‘Khau’ is typical Marathi word used by kids to address anything for munching. So just like dadagiri, bhaigiri, or Gandhigiri...it's Khaugiri:)
