Thattai / Thattu vadai is made mainly for diwali in our house holds. But mom says can be made mainly for gokulashtami too. We make uppu seedai, vella seedai and kai murukku for gokulashtami in my mom’s house. This year, as our paati passed away, we have no celebrations, but wanted to try this thattai as it has been ages (really long time) since I had this. So I was craving for some for past few days. This is my first time I am trying and it came damn tasty and crispy too! Thanks to amma, I asked her the recipe for thattu vadai yesterday and tried it as such. Now I have enough for next 2 weeks. Coz, only I like it, so I am the lone eater of it :D
We can add peanuts, curry leaves like we get in restaurants, but in our home we make this way, and I love this way a lot. So made it that way. If you like peanuts, you can add it along in this recipe.
