Chatamari in the house

Introduction

Chatamari - yes, it's just so yummy! It's made up of rice flour. Very easy to make - just need rice flour, oil and water to make the batter. Yes, it's that simple! Back home, my grandma used to make a lot of chatamari during our puja and I still remember I used to enjoy with aloo sadheko. I have listed out a recipe for you to enjoy and have a nice clip to show you how you can cook in a skillet. I hope you like it and enjoy yummy Chatamari!
