This is one of my favourite snack. Made with easily available ingredients at home, once made they are so yummy that you just dont realize when you have polished off the entire plate.

                              SURALICHI WADI / SURALICHYA PATWADYA / LOL WADI

Besan / chana daliche peeth (chickpea flour)sieved
1 small cup
Sour butter milk
3 cups
To taste
Chilli powder                         OR
Green chillies
½ tsp     OR
2 nos
Heeng (asafetida)
¼ tsp
Haldi (Turmeric powder)
½  tsp
Fresh coconut (scraped)
3 – 4 tbsp
Chopped coriander leaves
3 – 4 tbsp

3 – 4 tbsp
Rai (mustard seeds)

1.       Mix all the ingredients together in a pan except the tadka. Make sure it is very smooth and there are no lumps at all. If green chillies are being used then do not add them.
2.       Now put on the flame and start cooking on a medium heat.
3.       Keep on mixing with a spoon because as it starts cooking it will tend to get lumpy and it will also not cook uniformly.
4.       Continue cooking till it forms almost like a very thick porridge consistency. Spread a little on a plate to check. If it comes off easily from the plate & can be rolled then the batter is ready.
5.       Do not switch off the gas but keep on very low flame. Keep 4 – 5 large steel plates ready. Do not grease them.
6.       Vigorously spread spoonfuls of this prepared batter in a thin layer on the plates. Cool it.
7.       Cut in strips around 2 inch thick. Sprinkle the scraped coconut and coriander leaves on top.
8.       Now carefully roll each strip to form a wheel. Handle it carefully as it is very delicate.
9.       Arrange in a plate and give tadka on top with green chillies.
