Rice flour Chakli

Hi everybody,
I am here with a new recipe after long time. Life has made me busy with the arrival of our second baby. Taking care of two naughty kids is not an easy task. But I'm not exhausted, I'm enjoying this phase of life with them :)
Well, this is the recipe of Chakli which my Mom prepared during her stay with us. My daughter is a big fan of Chakli and this was made on her demand. Try this melt in mouth Chakli and I'm sure you will love it!


Preparation time: 2 hours
Soaking time: 2 - 3 hours
Difficulty level: Difficult
Yield: 60 Chaklis (depending on the size)

Ingredients:

  • Rice - 1 big cup full (1 cup = 175 gms)
  • Roasted rice flour - 3 1/2 cup (approx)
  • Till seeds - 4 tsp
  • Cumin seeds - 2 tsp
  • Carom seeds - 2 tbsp
  • Butter - lemon size
  • Salt to taste
  • Oil for deep frying
  • Water for grinding


Method:

  • Wash the rice 2 times and soak it in water for 2-3 hours. 
  • Drain the soaked rice and grind it along with till seeds, cumin seeds and carom seeds into fine paste. Add water as required. Consistency should be like the Dosa batter.
  • Add 2 1/2 tsp salt and 2 cups of water to the prepared batter and mix well. 
  • Transfer the batter to a thick bottomed vessel and keep stirring on medium flame for few minutes. Add lemon size butter while heating up the batter.
  • When the batter thickens, add around 3 1/2 cups (or as needed) of roasted rice flour and mix it when its still hot.
  • Knead the dough well and prepare a soft, non sticky dough ball. Keep the dough covered with a wet cloth and take out small portions as needed.
  • Fill the dough in a Chakli press and make them into spirals. 
  • Deep fry in hot oil and crispy Chaklis are ready to eat!
