Low Fat Oma podi
1 teaspoon ajwain
½ teaspoon chilly powder
2 tablespoons cooking oil
Grind ajwain seeds and add 3-4 tablespoons water. Filter this water and add to flours. Mix to make them look like crumbles
Heat the cooking oil and add to the flours and mix (mom’s tip – hot oil results in crispy snack)
Add little water and make a stiff dough
Fill your ‘naazhi’ (gun used to squeeze the dough thro’ a mould) and squeeze the omapodis on a baking sheet placed on a baking tray. Air dry this for 10 minutes or so.
Preheat oven to 180degC and bake the omapodi for 10-15 minutes. Depending on whether you like it a bit dark or light in colour, adjust your baking time.
