Methi Chakli

My love for Methi continues in namkeen too. Instead of making plain chakli I added methi in it and make this delicious chakli along with regular one too. It came out really good. We used to make this every Christmas and now I make it Diwali too. We call it chakri in Gujarat , In South India they called it Murukku. I used rice flour and besan but in South it made with rice and split white lentil flour, no matter what you use but the end result is always yummy, you can add sesame seeds, tomato paste, make it with soya flour. My kids love tomato and soy one because its not that spicy.

Ingredients :

2 cups rice flour
1 cup Besan / Yellow Gram flour
1 1/2 cup water
1 tbsp. cumin seeds
1 tbsp red chili powder
1 tsp. Turmeric powder
3 tbsp. Roast and grind  kasoori methi
3 tsp. hot oil for dough
sesame seeds is optional
salt to taste and oil for deep frying


Heat 3 tsp. oil and keep it aside.
Take your bowl, add rice flour, besan, grind kasoori methi, crushed cumin seeds, both powder, salt and mix it.
Add that hot oil and water and make the dough.
The consistency of the dough is very important, make it like regular roti / chapati dough and cover and let it sit for 20-30 minutes.
Heat the oil for frying.
By oil in your finger and your chakli maker, take the dough and put it in chakli maker.
Make big or small size chakli and put it in dish, or directly in oil.
Deep fry it till nice in color, take it out and finish rest.
You can make this without kasoori methi , just add sesame seeds and make it plain one too.
