Ingredients for Chakli Recipe

2 cups Rice flour
1/2 cup Urad dal flour
1/2 teaspoon Asafoetida (hing)
1 teaspoon Sesame seeds (Til seeds)
1 teaspoon Red chilli powder
1/2 teaspoon Turmeric powder (Haldi)
1/4 cup butter
Water as needed
Salt to taste
Cooking oil for deep frying

Method of making Chakli Recipe

To begin making the Chakli Recipe, combine all the ingredients for the Chakli except water. Gradually add water to make it a stiff dough non-sticky dough with no cracks.

Grease the Sev Press or the Sev Sancha with oil and place the plate which has one star into the press.

Heat oil in a deep frying pan on medium-high heat.

Fill the Chakli dough into the press. Prepare about twenty square pieces of aluminum foil each of size 2 inches. Grease them with oil and arrange them in two lines on your work surface.

Slowly start to press the Chakli dough into a spiral shape starting from the center going outwards on the square strip of the aluminum foil. (About 2.5 spirals).

Gently lift the foil and slide the spiral Chakli into the hot oil from the side of the frying pan, so the oil does not splash on to you.

Add about 3 or 4 more Chakli spirals into the frying pan. Care not to overcrowd the pan, allowing all of them to stay afloat together and not a few sunken in between the others.

Turn over once after a few seconds and fry until the Chakli is golden. Drain the oil completely with a slotted spoon and allow the Chakli to cool completely.

Press the remaining batches of the Chakli dough in a similar manner and deep fry on medium heat. Cool the Chakli and store it in airtight containers.

Serve the Chakli Recipe as a tea time snack or make it for Festivals to share with friends and family.
