How to Make Pappu (Uppu) Chekkalu

  • Wash and soak channa dal in water for 30-60 minutes until it becomes soft.
  • Grind ginger and green chillies together into a paste. Keep aside.
  • Mix together rice flour, butter, cumin seeds, curry leaves, ginger-green chilli paste, soaked dal and salt into a thick paste/dough using a little water as required.
  • Heat oil in a deep-bottomed pan.
  • Take small lumps of the rice flour dough and flatten into thin circles.
  • You can use your hand or a plastic sheet for doing this.
  • Carefully drop these circles into the hot oil and deep fry until they turn golden brown in colour.
  • Then remove from the oil and place on a paper towel to remove excess oil.
  • Repeat the same process with rest of the dough.
