1 packet - small elbow shaped macaroni

1.5 cups - Channa dal

1/2 cup - Rice flour

2 tbsp - chilli powder

1 tsp - salt

1/2 cup - Onion (optional)

Oil for deep frying


  1. First boil the macaroni in a small bowl with a little water.
  2. Allow it to cook in the microwave for 3 to 4 minutes till it is al dente. Drain.
  3. Now add channa dal, rice flour, salt, chilli powder, and onion to it and mix all together till it forms a coarse dough.
  4. Try not to add water; you can wet your hands in the cooked macaroni water, which is a little thick because of the carb content in the macaroni.
  5. Taste test the dough for salt and chilli.
  6. Pour oil in a deep kadai and let it become hot, and when it is very hot, reduce the heat of the stove, and start putting small balls of dough.
  7. You can put 5 to 6 balls and start frying.
  8. When it turns colour and becomes light brown, you can take it out and place it on a paper towel, so that the excess oil is absorbed.
  9. The same way finish the remaining dough and serve it with tomato ketchup or mint or coriander chutney.
