Thattai is a traditional recipe that is made in Tamil households for Krishna Jayanthi and Deepavali. Thattai can be stored and consumed for two weeks. The right mix of rice flour and roasted gram flour or besan flour and seasoned with pepper or red chili powder for the spiciness. Thattai is also called as Nipattu and Cheekalu in Karnataka / Andhra areas. In this recipe, I have used freshly crushed peppercorns for seasoning. The melted butter and fresh ground pepper’s aroma fills up the air in the house. Do try this pepper thattai for the Krishna Jayanthi and enjoy it.
- I have used pepper on this thattai. You can replace it with red chilli powder too.
- If you like groundnuts, you can add it before kneading.
- Add 2 teaspoons of hot oil instead of melted butter.
