[Recipe] Chakali

This Diwali, along with Besan Ladoo (check the recipe here), we made a savoury snack known as 'Chakali' (or Murrukku, as it is known in Southern India). It is a popular snack for Diwali in almost whole of India.

Recipe to get around 20 Chakalis around 7-8cm in diameter

1 1/2 Cup Chakali or Murrukku flour (Available at most of the Indian Stores)
1/2 tsp. Asafoetida or Hing
1 tsp. Salt
1tsp. Red Chilli Powder
1 tsp. Carom Seeds
1 tsp. Ginger Paste
1 tsp. Garlic Paste
1/2 tsp. Turmeric Powder
Water to kneed the dough
Oil for deep frying

1. Kneed the dough with all the ingredients and add 1Tbsp. oil. The dough should be soft and easy to mould
2. Leave it for 5-10 minutes.
3. Grease the chakali making press equipment or use a piping bag.
4. There are two ways of doing it from here- one is to make the chakalis directly into hot oil by moving the equipment or piping bag in circular motion or the second way is to cut few pieces of aluminium foil and make the chakalis on it and transfer to hot oil.
5. Fry till golden brown and take out and drain the excess oil by placing them on paper towel.
6. Let it cool and store in airtight container.

A variation for kids could be to make the dough with only flour, salt and carom seeds.

Hope you enjoy this snack with your family and do share with us...
