This can  be made with chilli powder and without chilli powder. I like the WITHOUT CHILLI POWDER version. 


Gram flour - 2 cups
Rice flour - 1 cup
Ghee - 2 tablespoons OR Hot oil - 2 ladles
Red chilli powder - 2 tsp. (optional)
Hing - a generous pinch
Ajwain (Omam) - 2 tablespoons OR Omum water(store bought) - 1/2 cup 
Salt  - to taste
Oil - To deep fry


Soak omum in water for an hour, grind and filter. Combine all the  ingredients (except oil to deep fry) using this filtered  liquid OR use omum water (store bought), pour hot oil and knead to form a medium soft dough.

Heat oil in a kadai. Make balls out of the dough, place it in a omapodi achu and press it firmly, in a circular motion, directly into the oil. Flip gently on both sides and take out when golden brown. Ensure medium heat of oil. Proceed with the remaining mixture.
