Krishna Jeyanthi Special - Diamond Chips

Its been 3 months.since I blogged .I had my in laws visit and some health issues,these restrained me from blogging .My friends were asking me to return back soon.I shud mention here, about my beloved friends,who enquired about my absence.I owe to them a lot.Thank u friends for ur continous support.And I promise u that,I will be regularly posting,blog hopping.Here I am ,with a festival recipe.This is my MIL's recipe.She prepared it and bought it  from India .Its foolproof recipe.Give it a try.

Recipe source: MIL


Ingredients:
1.Maida                  -         2 cups
2.Powdered sugar  -          1 1/2 cups
3.Salt                      -          1 tsp
4.Baking soda         -          a pinch
5.Ghee                    -           1 tbsp
6.water                    -           1/4 cup (or as needed)

Method:
* Take a pan ,add ghee and roast the maida flour.Roast it untill we have a  nice aroma.
* Add the roasted maida flour,powdered sugar,salt and baking soda in a mixing bowl.Mix them well.
* Form a soft dough ,by sprinkling water .
* Rest the dough for an hour.Keep it tightly  covered.
* Divide the dough into equal sized balls.
* Using a rolling pin roll it into  thin rotis.Leave the rotis to dry for 10 mins.

* Cut the rotis into diamonds and fry  till it turns into golden brown biscuits.
* Wipe off the excess oil and store in a air tight container.



Notes:
Sugar level depends on individuals taste.If u want the diamond biscuits to be less sweet ,then u can add 1 cup of powdered sugar ,instead of  1 1/2 cups.Keep in mind,powdered sugar differs from sugar in quantity.Fry the chips in medium heat,as there are chanced for the chips to get brown soon.

wow, they look great dear. I make these but roasting maida is new for me.

Thanks for sending them to bookmarked event dear. But, We have changed rules a bit and please go through them. From now on, re-writing someone's recipe is not allowed and only a link needs to be posted in your post with all the modifications or tweaks you made to the recipe. Or if it is a recipe from book or magazine, please scan and post the recipe page, but don't write the real recipe. We are not allowing recipes from memories or some friend anymore as this is a "bookmarked" recipe event. Hope it makes sense. Please make appropriate changes to your post with respect to these rules.

harini sivakumar said...

i tried to make these seeing the recipe here. but when i put the diamond cut dough in oil it seperates and becomes comletely shapeless.. can u suggest why>???

savitha ramesh said...

Hi harini,may be the dough was not firm enough,or the oil is not hot enough.These reasons would have made the chips to get dissolved.One more reason may be,have you dried the cuts before frying?
