Butter Chakli/Butter Chakkuli

I tried a few chakli recipes last year but couldn’t post them due to some reasons. Today I am posting Butter chakkuli/chakli which can be prepared during Diwali.
Lets get cooking!

  • 2 cups rice flour
  • ½ cup besan / gram flour
  • 2 tbsp roasted chana dal / roasted bengal gram / putani kaalu
  • 1 tsp jeera / cumin seeds
  • 1 tsp white or black sesame seeds
  • pinch of hing / asafoetida
  • salt to taste
  • 1-2 tbsp butter
  • Water as required to knead into a soft dough
  • Oil for deep frying

  1. In a large mixing bowl take rice flour, besan and powdered roasted chana dal.
  2. Add cumin seeds, sesame seeds,hing and salt.
  3. Lastly add butter and crumble well with flour.
  4. Now slowly add water as required and start kneading.
  5. Knead to smooth and soft dough a little harder than chapathi dough.
  6. Furthermore, take star mold and fix to the chakli/chakkuli maker.
  7. Also grease the chakli maker with some oil.
  8. Now make a cylindrical shape out of dough and place the dough inside chakli/chakkuli/murukku maker.
  9. Now tighten the lid and start shaping chaklis on a butter paper.
  10. Now drop these into hot oil 3 at a time and fry chaklis on medium flame.
  11. fry till they turn golden brown and crispy from both sides by flipping it on both the sides equally.
  12. Drain them onto a paper towel.
  13. When cooled store them in a airtight container.
Serve Yummy Butter Chakli with some hot tea or coffee.

Aps Note:

Instead of shaping chakkuli/chakli you can drop them directly in hot oil.
You can add chilli powder to make spicy butter chakli.

Happy Cooking,
