How to Make Cashew Drumstick Leaves Crispies

  • Make a coarse powder of the garlic, clove and cinnamon
  • Mix the flours with all the ingredients (except oil for deep frying) along with a tbsp of hot oil (usually water is not required to prepare dough as the moisture content of the onions is enough).
  • Check salt and drop very small portions of dough into hot oil, with fingers.
  • Deep fry the crispies till they turn light golden brown in colour.
  • Remove and place them on a kitchen towel.
  • Serve hot with a cup of hot tea.
