Chakli/ Murukku/ Rava Chalki

Diwali means unlimited munching to me! 😬😜 yes…ever since I was a kid…my mom would make yummy sweets and savouries…and we would go on munching and making merry:):)… And I too make a lot of stuff for Diwali each year…as my hubby also loves homemade sweets & savouries…😘

So, I started a tradition of making Rava Chakli/ Murukku last year along with Masala Puri for Diwali. Almost every household, across India makes some or the other version of Chakli. These Chaklis are so crispy and crunchy…just perfect, no-fail recipe 😁…But sweets are always loved right…something delicious and easy to do like these Kaju Katli or Besan Ke Laddoo ;)👌👌 these are always on the menu too😋

1 cup water + 3 tbsp

1 tbsp hot oil

1/4 tsp rock salt (kala namak)

1/2 tbsp roasted cumin pwd

1/2 tsp cumin seeds (Jeera)

Method:

Boil 1 cup of water in the saucepan, then add rava and cook it, make sure it is without any lumps. Now, add rice flour, besan , salt to taste, kala namak, red chilli pwd, roasted cumin pwd, cumin seeds, hing and 1 tbsp hot oil to the cooked rava. Give them a mix.

Then, make the Chaklis using the chakli maker on a plate or aluminium sheet. Heat sufficient oil in the wok. Once it’s hot enough, lower the flame and start frying the chaklis on medium flame. Don’t fry on very high flame, else they will remain raw from inside. Fry 3-4 chaklis at a time, don’t overcrowd the wok. Let them turn golden- brown in colour on both sides & drain them on kitchen tissues.

Store them in airtight containers, they stay fresh for 8-10 days.
