Chakali.

CHAKALI
Diwali snacks seem to be incomplete unless Chakali is made and served . Making this crisp snack is time consuming and tideous and crowds can finish it in seconds making all the eforts well worth it.Traditionally roasted grains are ground into flour to make chakali. However if the means to grind grains are not available , here is a workaround recipe by which you dont miss to make and eat you favorite snack.

Ingredients :

1 cup rice flour , 1 cup wheat flour (Atta) , 1 cup bajri flour ,

Salt to taste , 1/4th tspn ajwain , 1 tbspn white sesame seeds (til) ,

4 tbpn butter , 1/2 tspn red chilly powder , 2 pinch asafoetida ,

1/4th tspn turmeric , 1/2 cup hot water , Oil to deep fry.

Procedure :

Roast the measured rice , wheat and bajri flour on medium high heat for 15-20 minutes. This removes the raw taste and finishes the missed step of roasting the grains before grinding. Let it get to the room temperature. Melt the butter and add it to the flour mixture. This helps to make them crisp. Add salt , red chilly powder , turmeric , asafoetida , ajwain , sesame seeds. Mix well. Add hot water just enough for the batter to get together. Do not add too much water to the flour.

Fill the material to the chakali making machine and make the chakalis in the traditional swirl pattern on a plastic sheet. Carefully lift the chakali and deep fry them till they turn brown in color. Place them on the cooling rack so that excess oil drips down. Let cool chakali is ready to eat. Store them in an airtight container only after they get to the room temperature.
