Crunchy Chakkuli

Chakkuli /Chakli/ Muruku is one of the favourite munching snack at any time of the day. I do love it . I also wants try varieties of chakkuli but not going beyond the tradition. I always think of what to do and how it might taste.


This Crunchy Chakkuli also from Traditional way but just made it bit easy. I have tried roasted and powdered urid dal and rice powder. Here I have pressure cooked Urid dal and then added to flour and made chakli dough.
When you are trying the recipe please do try in smaller quantity, so that even if it turns bad you do nt feel sad, or you can use your creativity and turn then as something else.
Let us see the recipe Now :

Things Needed :

Rice flour :  3 Cups
Boiled Urid Dal : 3/4 Cup
Roasted Chenna / Putani /Hurikadale : 1/2 Cup
Sesame Seeds : 1 Tablespoon
Red chilly powder : 1 Teaspoon
Jeera /Cumin Seeds : 1 Tablespoon
Salt : As required
Butter : 1 1/2 Tablespoons
Oil : To Fry : 2 Cups or little more
Mould and the plate


Method : 

1. Wash and pressure cook urid dal and leave it for cooling. Smash the cooked urid dal nicely.
2. Dry grind roasted chenna/hurikadale/putani and keep it aside.
3. Take a big bowl and add rice flour, powdered chenna, chilly powder, salt and butter.
4.  Add jeera/cumin seeds and sesame seeds. Mix all the ingredients nicely.


5. Add smashed urid dal and mix all the ingredients nicely once again.
6. Add water little by little and prepare the chakli dough. ( It should not be too loose or tight ).
6. Kneed the dough well and divide them in to small portions.


7. Wash chakli mould and insert chakli plate inside.


8. Take a portion of chakli dough and put it inside the mould.
9. Now you press the chakli mould on a plate and give a round shape to chakkuli.
10. Press and prepare chakkuli on a tray or plate.


11. Keep a pan on the fire and heat. Add oil and let it get hot.
12. Put these circle shaped chakkuli to hot oil and fry on both sides till they turn crisp. ( On medium flame).

13. Put the done chakkuli on a kitchen tissue so that extra oil can be absorbed by tissue.


14. Repeat the same and prepare the remaining chakkulis



15. Now chakkulis are ready to serve. Put them in a air tight box or bottle and store.

Note :

Cook dal with 1/2 cup of water. Let it cook nicely. Soft dal is easy to smash it. You can grind the dal instead of using the hand to smash.
You can also use more chilly powder to give chilly taste. Adding more butter turns chakkuli very soft and it might dissolve in oil while frying. So do not add more butter. Water use should be very little at time, just add enough water and prepare dough. If the dough turns very loose it might absorb more oil and chakkuli will not be proper. If the dough turns very thick, you may have to put your energy to press the mould to prepare chakkuli. Poori dough consistency will be perfect. Adding more oil to fry is an option. I use minimum oil to fry. Fine rice powder should be used.
Time : 30 to 35 Minutes.
30 to 40 Chakkulis can be made. ( According to size ).


Chakkuli and Ompudi Plates.

You can also prepare Ompudi /thin khara Sev with the same mix and using Khara Sev plate.

Karchi Kai /Karanji / Sweet fried Kadubu is one of the traditional dish prepared for Ganapati and Deepavali. It is one of the easy dish and can be kept for a long time ( At least a week).

Varieties of stuffing can be done according to your imagination. The outer layer is done with chiroti rava and maida. The filling/stuffing is like coconut, jaggery or sugar, dry fruits, dates and candy sugar etc.

Use of ghee helps the outer layer to be crispy and crunchy.
