Pour this heated oil to the flour and mix well. Knead the dough by adding sufficient amount of water. Keep it aside for about 15 mins by covering a lid.

Take little amount of dough and make a round ball.

Roll the ball like chapathi as shown in the picture below by using little amount of oil.

Cut the rolled chapathi into medium sized long pieces as shown in the picture below.

Keep oil in a thick bottomed vessel and heat it. Put rolled paare pieces in oil and deep fry until they turn golden in color.

When they are cooled to room temperature, keep them in an airtight container. Serve along with coffee or tea. I tried this recipe from Manjula's Kitchen. Thanks Manjula for the recipe.

@ Ranjith / Neeli hoovu
This recipe is different than Shankarpole/Thukkudi. For Thukkudi, we don't add bengal gram flour(Besan) and also some other ingredients vary.
Here are the recipe links for Sweet and Khara Thukkudi:
