This is South Indian way of making mixture which I learnt from my mother. I made this for this Deepavali. I suggest you must also try this savory and enjoy it with a cup of hot tea/coffee.

1. Gram flour/Besan - 2 cups
2. Red chilli powder - 3 tsp
3. Asafoetida - around 5 piches
4. Groundnuts - 1/4 cup
5. Curry leaves - 2 tbp
6. Garlic - 3 nos.
7. Beaten rice - 1/4 cup
8. Oil for deep frying
9. Salt to taste

1. Mix gram flour, 2 tsp chilli powder, asafoetida and 1 tsp salt(or according to your taste) with water and knead it into a soft dough(just like the one for chapathi).

2. For omapodi: Fill the dough in mixture press and squeeze it into hot oil. Fry until the mixture turns light golden brown. I made the omapodi with different types of plates of mixture press(small holes, large holes and flat ones).

3. Deep fry the beaten rice in the same oil and keep aside.

4. In a different pan add 1 tbsp of oil and fry ground nuts, curry leaves, garlic(thinly sliced). Add a pinch of asafoetida, salt and 1 tsp chilli powder to this and turn off the stove. Add beaten rice and crushed omapodi to this and mix well.

5. Let the mixture cool down completely and then store in a air tight container.
