The other day I was to meet Sharmila Rao as I was to pick up some books from her. Actually I think that books is just an excuse, I like to meet her.

We decided to meet at Carasid, a local joint for yummy food. I still have to get over the omellete pav stuffed with cheese and smoked chicken, not to forget the delicious Alsande Xauti Biryani that Sunil packed for us.

See start talking about food and I digress…

I happened to mention to Sharmila that I wanted a traditional fitter recipe, she is a traditional specialist by the way and  she rattled this yummy recipe off. She mentioned that she was going to pack some of these for her kiddo in the hostel.

Was it yum?  Well try and then you will know.


  • 1 ½ cups rice flour
  • ½ cup maida
  • ½ cup butter
  • The oil from pickle (optional)
  • Salt to taste
  • 1 spring curry leaves
  • Oil to fry 


  • While this is mixed heat oil in a kadhai/wok.
  • Mix the rice flour, maida, butter, curry leaves and oil from the pickle if using. Check the salt use if needed.
  • Knead to a soft dough. Use water only if needed.
  • Pinch off small bits of dough in the hot oil.
  • Fry till light golden.
  • Store in a air tight container.

What else do we have?
