Method:
1.Take maida in a vessel and sprinkle water over it.Just sprinkle very little water and mix with your fingers.Now keep the vessel inside the cooker and cook up to 2 whistles.Once the pressure is released mix the maida well.It will be little moist and color will be changed a little.
2.Now heat oil for deep frying.While the oil is getting heated,grind roasted gram to fine powder and peanuts to coarse powder.
3.Add all the ingredients expect oil to the steamed maida and mix well.Take 2 tablespoons of hot oil and add it to the flour mixture.Mix well.Next add water little by little and knead.The dough should be firm yet smooth and pliable.

Alternate method:
Instead of deepfrying you can also bake these thattais. After flattening the disc,you can bake them spreading in a cookie sheet in a preheated oven at 180C for 15 minutes.They turned out really good.

Notes:
1.Do not skip the peanuts.They add a nice crunch and different taste.
2.Addition of hot oil is very important as we are not adding any butter in this recipe.
3.I have used this pressure cooker method to prepare the maida instead of using the tradition clot method.This is easy and less messy.You may also tie the maida in a cloth and cook.
