Tum Tum

Tum Tum is delicious, spicy ,crunchy on the outside, soft inside deep fried tea time snack , popular in Nadiad district of Gujrat.

Tum Tum can also be called another variant of Ganthia , but this has different ingredients than the regular Ganthia. Tum Tum has a small portion of urad daal added to chickpea flour. The urad daal lends a unique flavor to them.

To make Tum Tum one needs a special mesh which has a star like design on it. Normally we do not have this mesh at home so we either borrow from friends or instead use a Sev Press machine with the star mesh in it. The taste varies between the two meshes , but not much, so one can definitely use the sev press if the mesh is not available.

Nadiad is a small city in the Kheda district of Gujrat and Tum Tum happens to be a specialty of this small city . Tum Tum is my week 2 post under the theme Sweets and Snacks where I am posting Diwali or Jar Snacks from Gujarat.

  1. I didn’t know Gujaratis even have a chakli with sugar added. 🙂 Love the three stranded shape of your chakli. Indian chaklis in all forms and shapes are great to munch on. Keep bringing on these traditional gems.
