In place of corn flour, you can also use Rajgira Atta . When made this way it can also be used as eatable while observing “Fast”. This is one of farali(some thing which we can eat while observing fast) recipe . Normally it is made this way only. Just as a slight variation to it , I have used corn flour instead of Rajgira atta. That gave it crispiness. One can also use sago flour, if want to make it as eatable for fast.
