Mullu Thenkozhal

An easy to make snack with just a few ingredients. I made a slight twist to it by adding some masala items to it.


Besan (chickpea flour) 2 cups
Rice Flour 1/2 cup
Ajwain (Omam) 1 tsp
Cinnamon 1 inch
Star Anise 2
Clove 2
Cardamom 1
Chilli powder 2 tsp (depending on how spicy you want it. I used just 1 tsp so that my son can enjoy it better)
Salt 1 tsp
Hing a little
Butter 3 Tbsp

Method of Preparation

1. Powder Ajwain (Omam), Cinnamon, Star Anise, Clove, Cardamom into a fine powder.

2. Take all the ingredients in a bowl

3. Mix by adding water little at a time to make dough like chappati

4. Make a small ball with it and put it in the Nazhi (the equipment) with the correct chip.

5. Heat oil in a Kadai and press down the dough into the oil.

6. Gently break down the thenkozhal and cook till it is slightly browned. You will get deeper colour if you are using a lot of chilli powder.

7. Yummy Mullu Thenkozhal is ready to serve.
