Hello soo sorry for posting lately for this week's blog hop...i was unable to open from my browsers from finally able to post it...:)

This is the 5th week for Blog Hop Wednesdays and im paired with a very nice Blogger Friend Bhagyashree..She has a gr8 space there...When i was searching for a recipe from her posts, i saw this muruku and it reminds me all my childhood days..soon i decided to make this out for the blog hop...:-)
I made lil variation to the original u can check Bhagyashree's recipe here..:-)


Chakli Maker
1/4 Cup Urad Dal(Spilt black gram..skinned)
1 Cup Rice Flour
1 tbsp Cold Butter
1/4 tsp Hing(Asafoetida)
1/4 tsp Bhuna Jeera powder(roasted Cumin seeds powder)
Salt to taste


Roast the dal till it turns light brown in color..
Cool and grind to a fine powder.
Mix rice flour, urad dal powder, salt and roasted cumin seeds powder in a bowl.
Add the cold butter in to it and mix in ur hand to get breadcrumb like consistency.
Dissolve the hing in lil water and add this to the above mix.
Add some more water to get a firm but soft dough.
Prepare the chakli maker by oiling it.
Fill the dough within the maker and press them through and try to shape them as circles on a oiled plastic sheet.
Keep for 2 mins.
Heat oil in a kadai and fry these murukus in medium heat till their color changes to light brown.
Drain them in kitchen towel and let them cool before storing in the air tight jars..
Serve as snacks with tea or have it as it is...enjoy...:-)
