An evening snack with the goodness of millet
Kambu karaadai is an easy-to-make, tasty and nutritious snack. I learnt this recipe from my grandmother and a variation of it from my mother-in-law. It tastes best when served with spicy onion chutney.
What you need
Pearl millet (Kambu flour) -1 cup
Wheat flour - 1 cup
Drumstick leaves, chopped fine -1cup
Onions, chopped fine - 3 or 4
Salt to taste
Chilli powder - 1tsp
Cooking oil - a little
Mix the chopped onions, drumstick leaves, salt and chilli powder with the kambu and wheat flour and knead into a tight dough. If necessary add a little water. Pat into rounds. Cook one at a time on a tava (medium flame) with a little oil flipping constantly. A sweet variation can be made substituting palm jaggery and cardamom powder for the onion, drumstick leaves, salt and chilly powder.
