Diwali is nearing and looking for a perfect savoury or jar snack to make for your guests? instant homemade chakli is definitely a go to. It is one of the most famous Indian snack and also is made in many Indian houses. Chakli is a namkeen which is made with easily available ingredients which are found in every well maintained kitchen. Rice flour chakli is also quick and easy to make.

The method to make chakli might look complex but actually it is not. The process of making chakli is divided into three parts, the first is kneading the dough. For kneading dough for chakli, firstly you need to sieve the rice flour to get rid of impurities in it and add cup curds (dahi) ,butter, turmeric powder (haldi), chilli powder, asafoetida (hing), ginger- green chilli paste and sesame seeds (til). Mix and knead into a soft dough. The second step is divide and taking a portion and press it into a chakli “press” and cover it with the lid. Press out round swirls of chaklis. The final step is to deep- fry the instant homemade chakli till crisp and golden brown and drain on absorbent paper. Cool and store it in air tight container.

Chaklis are an indispensable Diwali snack. Not only are they ideal to accompany the Diwali sweets you share with friends and family, but they also come in handy when you want to have a quick snack with tea. Made of spiced rice flour bound by curds and butter to make a soft dough, chaklis are super-crisp deep-fried savouries, which can be easily preserved for around two weeks provided you keep them in a dry and airtight container. While you might initially find it difficult to press out the chaklis into perfect circles, it will be a breeze once you get the hang of it!

You can also serve instant homemade chakli as an evening tea snack with a hot cup of Masala Chai. I don’t only make it on occasion of Diwali but I keep making it once is consumed and over as my kids love this chakli but also they take chakli for kids tiffin snack.

  12. Mix well and knead into a soft dough. Taste the dough for seasoning and increase the spice if you want. If the dough is too stiff then chaklis will break when you try to shape them and if the dough is too soft then chaklis will absorb oil while frying. Our crispy instant chakli dough is now ready to pipe and fry

How to make chakli

  1. To prepare crispy chakli at home, divide the dough into 4 equal portions and keep aside. We have used the dough instantly but if you are a novice at making chakli then you can let the dough rest for 30-35 minutes, this resting time makes the dough pliable

  2. Grease a chakli mould and place a star shaped plate in the chakli press. This will prevent the dough from sticking to the mold

  3. Cover it with the lid. Ensure you fill only till 3/4 th of the press or else the dough will ooze out and you will face trouble in closing the lid

  4. Press out 50 mm. (2”) diameter round swirls of chakli onto an inverted flat thali, working closely from the centre to the outside. You can even line a tray with parchment paper or wet muslin cloth and pipe the chaklis.
    • If the dough is breaking while forming the chakli, it means there is less moisture. Take the dough out of the chakli press, add a tablespoon of water at a time and knead again.
    • If you are not getting a proper shape, it means the dough is too moist then add some flour and knead again

  5. Snap the dough after you have have 3 to 4 spiral rounds. Seal the ends so the chakli does not fall apart while frying. The size of the chakli depends on you. Just ensure that the spirals are not spaced out but an intact coil .

  6. Press the chaklis very gently with the back of a flat ladle. If you are facing a lot of trouble while making the spiral coil then simply, make 2 -3 ” long sticks or pipe them in a straight line like a rope
    chakli recipe | instant homemade chakli | rice flour chakli (20)
  7. Press out all chaklis like this, keep them covered so that they don’t dry out. You will get around 60-65 chaklis
    chakli recipe | instant homemade chakli | rice flour chakli (21)
  8. For frying the chakli, heat the oil in a deep non-stick pan, carefully slide few chaklis in the oil and deep fry thechakli | instant homemade chakli | rice flour chakli | Gujarati chakri |on a medium flame. Do not fry at high heat, they will not turn crispy and easily turn brown without being cooked from inside. It would be wise to test the temperature of the oil. Add a little piece of dough to the oil. If it comes up gradually, the oil is just right for frying. If it comes up super quickly, the oil is too hot. Also, do not fry too many chaklis at a time, they will not only stick to each other but the temperature of oil will also drop drastically.
  9. Fry till they turn golden brown in colour and crisp from bottom.
  10. Flip and fry the chakri till they turn crunchy and golden brown in colour from all the sides.
