For the Cooking from Cookbook Challenge this week, I have a recipe from the dairies of my Aunt. She shared this recipe for the Pappu Billalu, made differently from what we normally make. So it was a crunchy treat over the weekend, making this and enjoying a deep fried snack after a long time.
Pappu Billalu is same as what Thattai in Tamil Cuisine or Nippattu in Karnataka. Anything deep fried you have my attention and this is one of my favorite snack. My memories of Pappu Billalu will always take me to my high school days, when we used to vacation with our family friends. Aunty's Mom used to make the best Pappu Billalu, one half would be with roasted peanut, the other with sesame seeds. Both used to be so delicious. I would be having internal fight on which one to eat first.
Anyway this reminded me of the same and I was taking a trip down the memory lane, remembering those lovely days!
Enjoy these by making it yourself, the recipe is pretty simple.
