 MuttaiKose is the name which i heard after marriage in Sivakasi, but in our place we call this as tea kadai cake or vettu cake.. after browsing the recipe the same recipe is called with two names.. in south we name this as vettu cake, or fried cake..

Crispy beauties are quite a long time wish to try in home, and few weeks back badly i started to crave for this.. filling snack, Shelf life of the recipe will be long for 2 days, if your refrigerate i think this can keep for a week, the size of the cake can make our desired size..

Muttaikose/Vettu Cake/Fried Cake

Recipe Cuisine: Indian | Recipe Category: TeaTIme/Street Food
Prep Time: 30 mins | Cook time: 15 mins | Serves: 4


Maida/APF 1 cup
Sugar  1/4 cup                          
Cardamom 2 nos
Egg 1 nos
Salt a pinch
Baking Soda 1/2 tsp
Oil 1/2 cup



Take the Sugar and Cardamom in a blender.. powder this and set aside, not open the lid immediately, as they are so fine, sugar powder will spread around.. 
Beat a egg in a mixing bowl.. 
Beat well till they foam up, just a forks or spoon is enough to beat 
Here is the powdered sugar and cardamom mix.. 
Add the sugar powder to beaten egg… 
Mix them well, and add salt and baking soda.. and again mix this. 
Add in the measured flour, and knead a soft dough.. 
Set aside for 30 mins to stiff the dough.. 
Roll them, use some flour to dust if need, roll to a cylindrical shape.. 
Evenly cut the roll.. 
And shape them to balls.. 
Give a mild cut, just a press with  knife. 
Heat a pan with oil, in medium flame drop the balls.. 
Flip and cook all the sides, i used quarter pan oil, if you want can add more oil, to cook fast.. 
Once the color starts to change, the size will be doubled.. 
Drain them out fro the oil and drop in the kitchen towel 


    • Knead the dough softly, if dough goes sticky use some floor to dust and roll the balls..
    • The balls will double in size, once they completely cooked, so make sure about the ball size..
    • Adjust the sugar to your taste, sugar i mentioned is a minimum amount which will not taste too sweet.
    • Put the flame in medium to cook the fries. 
    • put a very mild cut, once they cook, they will give a big deep look..
