Oil - for deep frying

  1. Steam cook maida for 15-20 min.
  2. Cook moong dal in a pressure cooker till its soft.
  3. Keep aside both dal n maida to cool down on room temp.
  4. After it cools down,using your hands break if any lumps in maida.(sift maida thru a chanii).
  5. Take a big bowl -mix maida,moong dal,jeera,till,hing and salt.
  6. Knead into a soft dough. (no need to add water).
  7. Place a plastic or take tray on the counter.Grease the chakli maker/press.
  8. Fill in little dough inside the press and make chaklii.

  10. Turn side only wen one side is hard enough.Fry till light brown n crispy.
