Today, I am going to post my mom’s chakli recipe – which used to be made on the same day of the festival/ pooja to offer as an offering to the god. This recipe does not need much planning. In our tradition, offerings to the deity should be done on the same day. It cannot be made beforehand nor readymade from the shop.
Here, you can take any tumbler as a measuring device.
Dosa rice – 1 cup
Urad dal – ½ cup
Poha or Sabudana – 1 tablespoon
Butter – small lemon size
Sesame seeds – 1 to 2 tsp
-Wash, soak dosa rice for an at least 2 hours.
-Dry roast urad dal until light brown and poha or Sabudana until crisp. Cool and make a fine powder.
-Sieve and collect those rough powder, repeat the grinding process to get fine powder. Keep it aside.
-Now, take soaked rice, grind into smooth paste with very minimal water and required salt.
-Now mix rice batter, sieved powder, butter, sesame seeds and make a smooth dough by adding required water, if needed.
-Heat coconut oil or any vegetable oil, prepare chakli’s by using chakli press. Drain excess oil, cool and store in a sir tight container.
