Fry the omam well, powder it and sieve it fine.
Sieve the rice and gram flours too.
Mix together the omam powder, rice flour, gram flour, salt and butter.
Add water to get a thick paste-like consistency.
Heat oil in a kadai or a pan.
:- To test if the oil is hot enough, drop a pinch of the dough into it. If it sinks, the oil isn`t hot enough. If the dough springs to the top with bubbles all around it, then the oil is ready.
Pass the dough through the special omapodi strainer into the hot oil.
Fry them till they become golden brown.
Keep flipping the sides till the omapodi is done.
:- Store in an air tight container.
