  • 2 Cups Rice Flour
  • 1 Cup Gram Flour (Besan) / Split Chick pea Flour
  • 2 tsps Butter (Room temperature)
  • 1 Inch Size Ginger
  • 2 Green Chilies (Adjust to your taste)
  • 3 tsps Sesame Seeds (Dry roasted until light gold colour)
  • 1/2 tsp Ajwain Seeds
  • 1 1/4 Cup water
  • Salt to taste
  • Jantikalu mould / Jantikalu Presser


  • Grind Green Chili, Ginger into a fine paste by adding 2 tsps water, pinch of salt. Set aside. (By adding pinch of salt, green chili will retain the colour).
  • Into a Large mixing bowl, add Rice Flour, Gram Flour, Butter, Salt, Roasted Sesame Seeds, Grinded green chili & Ginger paste, Ajwain Seeds.
  • Mix it well. Taste dry ingredients for salt and chili before adding water. (If required, add little more or else continue to next step).
  • Slowly add water little by little. make it into a soft dough, just soft enough that is pressed easily through the jantikalu presser.
  • Heat oil in a wide pan for deep frying. Take jantikalu presser and use the three holes plate or desired plate of your choice. Fill the dough with half of the presser and replace other part of the presser.
  • Once the oil is nice and hot, reduce the flame to medium and press the jantikalu presser in circular motion. As you press the dough in hot oil, the oil will froth up with bubbles which will eventually subside as the jantikalu turns to light golden.
  • Turn to the other side, fry until light golden and by using the slotted ladle transfer to a plate with paper towel to remove excess oil.
  • Repeat the same process for the rest of the dough.
  • Once done making jantikalu, let them rest and cool to room temperature.
  • Transfer to airtight container and store.
  • They will keep well for a month.
  • Serve Jantikalu with evening tea or coffee. 
  • Oil should be on medium flame while frying, so that they will be fried from inside out.
  • Jantikalu will continue to cook even after removing from the oil with the residual heat.
  • You can replace red chili powder instead of green chili and ginger.
