Take a pan and slightly fry urad dal, moong dal and peanuts without oil. Allow this to cool. Then transfer the contents
into a blender make soft flour(powder). As we added peanuts, sometimes it becomes oily and would not be soft. In that add little
by little hot water to make soft paste. To this mixture, add rice flour, butter, ajwain seeds, sesame seeds, chilli powder and salt.
Mix all these ingredients into a soft thin paste using hot water. We use hot water and butter for the crispiness of the snack.

Stove top:

Take a wide pan. Pour oil and heat it.
You need one instrument for making jantikalu. Put some dough into this to make circles.
Make these circles on a plastic sheet and then transfer into the pan.
Deep fry these in oil. Repeat the process with the remaining dough.
Switch off the stove.
