Rice Thattai | Crispy Thattai | Festive Snack Recipe | Step by Step

Here I'm with another festive snack you can easily try.Last week my son felt stomach discomfort and I picked him back from school when I received the call.It happened twice and the main reason for it is over intake of junk food.He was advised to avoid packed foods which are very difficult for him.When he is little okay he was tempted to eat and so had little and the problem started again. He is very fond of chicken and counting days to eat it. Following him, we too decided to go with the same menu that we cook for him which will be veggies platter. I have planned to start the non-veggies meal next weekend as my daughter's birthday falls the month-end.

Since no outside snacks allowed for him I prepare one snack a day to feed his hungry stomach after school. Yesterday I made this and he just loved it. It is very easy to make and even beginners can try.
