Dough Preparation: In a big bowl add the wheat/Maida flour, rice flour, besan flour, salt, red chili powder, sesame seeds and cumin seeds. Mix all the ingredients well. Knead the dough until its soft with 2 tbsp. oil or ghee. Make sure the taste of salt and spices are good enough to make biscuits. If not, adjust the taste by adding salt and red chili powder. Keep the dough for 5 mins.
Dough rolling: Divide the dough in to large lemon size balls. Roll them in to slightly thick chapathis.
Making diamond cuts: Make small holes using fork or knife in between the chapathi-like rolled dough. Using a sharp knife, cut the roti in to square or diamond shapes as shown in the picture. Now, raw diamond chips are ready.
Deep frying: Heat enough oil in a wide vessel. Once the oil is superhot, deep the flour diamond cuts on high flame. When it is done, the biscuits rise to the surface. Slow down the flame and keep until it turns to golden color.
Maida Biscuits presevation: Take out the biscuits using jallikarandi (big spoon with holes). Keep it on the kitchen Paper for some mins. Kitchen Paper absorbs the excess oil from the sncaks. Cool biscuits completely to room temperature. Store it in air tight container in order to preserve its crispiness for a long time. Try this recipe and share your experiences with us.
Tips:1) You can use idiyappam flour instead of rice flour to make Maida biscuits more crispy. 2) Barbeque (BBQ) masala can also be used instead of red chilli powder. Barbeque masala gives nice colour to the biscuits.
