This can  be made with chilli powder and without chilli powder. I like the WITHOUT CHILLI POWDER version. 


Gram flour - 2 cups
Rice flour - 1 cup
Ghee - 2 tablespoons OR Hot oil - 2 ladles
Red chilli powder - 2 tsp. (optional)
Hing - a generous pinch
Ajwain (Omam) - 2 tablespoons Or Omum water - 1/2 cup 
Salt  - to taste
Oil - To deep fry


Soak omum in water for an hour, grind and filter. Combine all the ingredients,mix well, add the filtered  liquid, pour half a ladle of hot oil and knead to form a medium soft dough. Add little water if necessary.

Heat oil in a kadai. Make balls out of the dough, place it in a omapodi achu and press  firmly in a circular motion, directly into the oil. Flip gently on both sides and take out when golden brown. Ensure medium heat of oil. Proceed with the remaining mixture.
Flavourful Omappodi is ready for Diwali.
