Baked Chakli

Day 2 Week 4 BM #52 - 

Here is another bookmark which is close to my heart. I could munch these with very little guilt and enjoyed every bite. I can't say the same for my better half. He cannot enjoy these traditionally fried stuff in the baked avatar. 

So it was up to me and the kids to enjoy the whole batch of chaklis! Thanks to Suma of Vegieplatter to give me the nudge to try these out.

Ingredients - 

Rice Flour 2 cups
Dalia/Putnalu Powder 1/2 cup (I used Besan/chickpea flour)
Urad Dal Powder 2 Tbsp
Salt (1 1/2 tsp) and Red Chili Powder (1/2 tsp) or as needed
Sesame Seeds 2 Tbsp
Asafoetida a few pinches
Hot Oil 3-4 Tbsp
Water to knead

Baked Chakli

Method Of Preparation -

Mix all the dry ingredients in a bowl. Rub in hot oil and mix well.

Knead into a soft dough adding as much water as needed.

Prepare a baking tray by greasing and lining with a parchment paper.

Fill in the chakli press with the dough and make small spirals on the prepared sheet. Make sure they are placed a little apart from each other.

Preheat the oven to 325 °F. Spray oil on each of the chaklis and bake for 20 minutes on one side and then flip them over. Spray oil again and bake until they turn a golden brown and crisp up (another 18-20 minutes).

Let them cool and store in an air tight container.

Preparation Time 25 min + Baking time 40 min
