I don't know about the origin of the recipe,but whatever it is ,It is one of the best Snack Recipe for me at-least.
chakli is a deep fried snack made from rice flour, gram flour, wheat flour or a mixture of lentil flours. chakli or chakri are made as a part of the diwali farsan in maharashtra and gujarat. there are many versions of making chakli. sharing today my family recipe of instant chakli. you will need a chakli maker to prepare these chaklis. these chaklis are made from rice flour.
I have shared Besan sev recipe some times ago on this blog and shared the details of sev maker.Actually sev maker always have the lid for making chakli.I bought that steel one but it was just broken in 3 months so repurchase new one which is made from "pital" you can easily get on amazon.
before moving on the recipe,Please check few notes.
- if the chakli breaks while forming them, this means that the dough does not have enough moisture. add 1 or 2 tbsp of water and knead the dough again.
- if you are not getting proper shape, this mean that the dough is too moist. add some flour and knead again. press chakli maker to make chakli
- have a bite into the piece of dough and if it tastes hard, add a 1 or 2 tsp or ½ tbsp of oil or butter to the dough and knead again. heat oil to fry chakli.
- check the first batch of chakli. if it appears that the chakli has absorbed oil or breaks in oil, then add some rice flour, about 1 to 2 tbsp and knead again. this happens if too much fat has gone in the dough.
