Instant Chakli recipe - Karnataka style
Recently I got a pack of bull driven cold pressed (Chekku ennai) sesame oil, groundnut oil and coconut oil from Gramiyum – An online store. Product & packaging was too good and its professional too. If you are looking for original cold pressed oils, you can buy them online from Gramiyum. They also have organic honey, natural nuts at a reasonable price. My MIL usually says snacks fried in groundnut oil is more flavorful. So I thought of making some murukku by frying in cold pressed groundnut oil ( Kadalai ennai).This instant chakli recipe which I had bookmarked years ago from Savi ruchi blog came to my mind. Its an easy, instant chakli recipe made with easily available ingredients. It came out very well with the awesome flavor of groundnut oil. I have tasted this Chakkuli/Chakri ( My friends tell this way) in my friends place. All my friends here make it during Ganesh Chaturthi, Diwali and Gokulashtami festivals. Basically I love this Karnataka style chakli a lot and got the recipe for homemade chakli powder from my friend Priya. I will share that recipe later.This one is made with rice flour and besan flour. Its prepared without butter or ghee. Hot oil is used to bring crunchiness. So it doesn’t have a melt in mouth texture just like butter chakli but tastes crispy and crunchy. It tastes the best with full flavor by the next day. We enjoy this chakli with our evening tea/ chai. As its summer vacation in India, Kids must be nagging you for some evening snacks. Do try this easy chakli recipe at home for your kids!They will like it. Please excuse me for the non uniform shapes. I am not so good  or patient enough in pressing murukku. Whenever I say this to my MIL, she funnily says” Don’t worry, are we going to eat in the same shape or is it going to come out the next day in the same shapeWinkingTongueLaughing, shapes are just for attraction.So try whatever you can, it sure comes by practice".How sweet she is :). This year, I am planning to try more murukku recipes. I hope I can make perfect swirls in future.

  • Heat cooking oil and add it to the flour. Mix with a spoon till oil spreads well in the flour.

  • Add water gradually and make a smooth dough.Make the dough slightly sticky.If the dough is too hard, chakli will break while pressing.Cover the dough with a wet cloth till use. Besan flour in the dough absorbs more water and dough becomes thick over time. So if the chakli breaks while pressing, sprinkle little water to the dough and try again. You will get it right. Sprinkle water whenever needed.

Note
  • Besan absorbs all water in the dough.So you may need to add sprinkle more water whenever needed while pressing.
  • Do not reduce the quantity of hot oil else chakli may turn hard.
  • Make sure oil temperature is right else murukku absorbs more oil.

Try this easy, instant chakli for your kids and family’'. They will love it !
