Method
Omapodi and Sev

                      Mix in all the ingredients except oil and make a soft and stiff dough with water.Take the murukku press with the omapodi disc and fill it with the prepared dough.


Squeeze it in the hot oil and drain it on a paper towel.Once it becomes cold crumble it to small pieces.


For the sev use the murukku disc and squeeze it in hot oil for a single layer.Break into pieces with the ladle when it is half cooked to get a crunchy and crispy sev.Once its cooked crispy drain it on the paper towel.


Boondhi

                  Mix the beasn and rice flour with a pinch of cooking soda and salt.Make a dropping consistency batter with the water.Hold the boondhi ladle on top of the hot oil and pour the batter,tap it gently.The batter will start dropping into the oil and fry it crispy.Drain it on a paper towel.Boondhi is ready.


Fry the peanuts,cashews,pottukadalai and beaten rice in the oil separately and drain it.Finally fry the curry leaves.


Now put everything together in a big wide mouth bowl,sprinkle salt,chilly powder and asafoetida.Mix it well.Yummy and flavorful Madras mixture is ready.Store it in an air tight container.


Yummy and flavorful Madras mixture is ready.



  • Crushed garlic can be added for extra flavor.
  • Fried corn flakes,diamond cut biscuits,Potato chips can be added for extra richness and taste.
  • Instead of deep frying the peanuts and cashews,it can be fried separately in a pan with a tsp of oil.
