It was always a flop show when I prepared chakuli or murukku.
There was one or the other mistake but now I have no problem because amma and
mamama (grandma) taught me the right way of making chakuli and here is the
perfect one. These Chakli's Were posted long back when I was in India.... I have reposted it as it got Deleted.
üRice flour 5 cups
üButter (loni) or shortening
üUrad daal 4-5 tea spns
seeds) - 1 tea spn
üSesame seeds (Til) 1 tea
üOil for frying
üSalt to taste
üRoast urad daal (without
oil) till they turn slightly brownish and powder them.
üAdd the powder, butter,
cumin seeds, sesame seeds and salt to rice flour and mix well.
üNow add milk/water to it
slowly mixing it to remove any lumps (Milk makes the chaklis crispier and
üMake it into dough (like
üKnead the dough well on a
flat board, pressing the dough to the board.
üFill the chakli press with
the dough and press into chakli shape on a flat board (use a plastic paper on
the board to make it easier to lift the chaklis
üHeat oil in a kadai and
deep fry the chaklis. Take out on a kitchen towel.
P.S : If the chaklis tend to break while making, try
kneading the dough for some more time, if still it doesn’t come out well, add
some more milk/water and knead again.
When they are cooled to room temperature, store them in
an airtight container.
Tastes Yum Yum when u add lozza love in it.
