Region: Indian
Dish:Vegetarian - Breakfast/Tiffins/Snacks
Main Ingredient: Jawar Flour, Rice flour, Plain Flour


* 2 cups Jawar Flour
* 1 cup Rice flour
* 1 cup Plain Flour
* 1/2 cup Ghee, warmed
* 2 tsp red chili powder
* 1 tsp Turmeric powder
* 1/2 tsp Asafoetida (hing)
* 2 tbsp Ajwain seeds
* 2 tbsp Sesame seeds
* Salt as per taste
* Oil for deep frying


Mix all the flours. Add red chili powder, turmeric powder, asafoetida, ajwain seeds, sesame seeds and salt. You may taste it to test for seasoning. Now add the warm ghee and mix well. Knead to a soft dough by adding water accordingly. Keep aside covered by a wet cloth.

Heat the oil. In the mean time fix the chakli plate-mould in the container of the 'chakli' hand machine. Now fill it with the part of the dough and close the lid. Make chaklis in a circular motion starting from the center of the chakli. Drop them on a plastic bag. Lift gently one by one and fry them in the oil till golden brown in color.


1. The flours should be sifted well.

2. Excessive ghee / oil causes chaklis to break while frying.

3. If chaklis turn out to be very hard. This might be because the amount of ghee / oil used is not enough.

4. Do not fry chaklis in extremely hot oil. They get over fried, turn black and taste bitter.

In India you get special chakli flour called "bhajani".
