Malati Srinivasan's Recipes


2 cups Rice flour
1/2 cup Black gram dhal (lentil flour)
1/2 cup Unsalted butter
2 tsp Sesame seeds
2 tsp Cumin
Pinch Salt
3 cups (approx) Vegetable oil for frying

In bowl, combine rice flour, black gram dhal, butter, sesame seeds,
cumin and salt; mix with hands, adding enough water to moisten and make soft dough.

Heat oil in deep skillet. Spoon some of the dough into chakli press with star disc; pressing out dough into hot oil in quick circular motion, make 6 to 8 chakli; fry, turning once, until very light golden colour and crisp. With slotted spoon remove chakli and drain on paper towels. Repeat with remaining dough. Let cool and store in an airtight container.
