A great evening teatime snack item, this is a favorite during Diwali.

Spicy Thukkada is a popular snack in India during Diwali time. It is made of a dough made from maida flour or wheat flour and deep-fried in oil. The dough is shaped into small, diamond shapes (hence the name) and spiced with choice of spices and salt.

A sweet variation of this dish includes the addition of sugar to the dough along with other spices.
