Mutta Surka is a tea time snack. I do not have any clue about the origin of this snack, whether it is a Kerala dish or a Tamil Nadu one. It is something that my mom and mil makes. It could be made as a sweet or spicy snack. I love the spicy one more and the version I have here is my mom's and it is the spicy one.
Rice Flour - 1 cup (Roasted)
Coconut - 1/2 cup (Grated)
Ginger - 1 tbsp heaped (Crushed coarsely)
Green Chilly - 3 (Crushed coarsely)
Small Onions - 6 to 7 (Crushed coarsely)
Egg - 1
Curry Leaves - 1 twig
Salt - to taste
Water - 1 cup
Oil - as needed to fry
1. Take rice flour in a bowl.
2. Add Coconut, Crushed Ginger, Green Chilly, Small Onions, chopped Curry Leaves, Egg, Salt and water to the rice flour and make a thick batter.
3. Heat Oil in a Unniappam Chatti (Karol Scoops).
4. Drop a spoonful of batter into each of the scoops. Fry until slightly golden brown.
Enjoy Mutta Surka with your evening tea! The quantity mentioned here would make around 20 mutta surkas. You could make the sweet version by adding sugar instead of ginger and green chilly.
