notes:

  • firstly, do not add rice flour to the dough mixture as gathiya need to be crunchy yet melt in the mouth.
  • additionally, instead of chilli powder, you can use pepper or combination of both.
  • also, make sure to fry in hot oil on medium flame. else gathiya / thika sev will be raw from inside.
  • finally, gathiya stays good for a month when stored in airtight container.
