Of Flavours & Tastes…

Cholafali ! – For Indian Cooking Challenge..

This month’s Indian Cooking challenge turned out as one of the many thrilling food explorations in my kitchen.I have so far not experimented much with Gujarati Cuisine.That’s the delight.I thank Srivalli for selecting this one.This Gujarati snack is a unique flavour mixed of Urad dal and gram flour.From among the recipe options Srivalli offered,I picked up Khaugiri’s since it was relatively easy and simple in content.Thanking Khaugiri as well for the wonderful recipe.


1 cup gram flour/besan
1/2 cup urad dal flour
1/2 -3/4 cup water
1 tsp oil
pinch of baking soda
1/2 tsp chilli powder & pinch of black salt to sprinkle
1/2 cup oil to deep fry


Bring the water to a boil adding salt,oil and baking soda into it.Mix both the flours in a bowl and knead it in the boiled water.Mix it with a spoon first and then knead it into a soft yet tight dough.Keep the dough aside for 15 minutes.

Now prepare small balls from the dough and roll out into thin rotis.Make thin strips from the same.

Heat oil in a kadai and deep fry the strips to make cholafali.The heat should be medium.Sprinkle black salt and chilli powder before serving.
