Chakkuli ( Rice Flour- Urid Flour & Chenna Flour)

Happy Deepavali - Happy Deepavali - Happy Deepavali - Happy Deepavli To You All.

Deepavali is festival of lights and Goodies. Spicy and Sweet dishes are poured in distributing and eating 😉😃.
Chakkuli/Chakli is one of the easy dish that you can prepare in lots and one of the favourite Namkeen (Salty dish) of many.
Chukkuli is done in using different ingredients and their are varieties of  Chakkulis that you can prepare.
Here I have tried Chakkuli and is adopted from Madhura Pradeep's recipe. She has put up this particular recipe in FOODIE (cookery) blog. She is one of the admini in Foodie blog. It is one of my favourite blog also.
Madhura Pradeep is very interested in cooking and baking. Very creative  and got the Queen crown
for baking,from Our Main FOODIE Admini   Sadashiva Rao Mailankody. Madhura Pradeep 's interest in cooking made her to have her own Cookery blog recently.
A big thanks to Shri Kripa who is also a Foodie Group Admini, very intelligent, very good in cooking, informative, sincere and helpful to members in all manners. When I asked her to find about the writer of this recipe she helped me to get the recipe writer by checking  up the recipes. Thanks Shri Kripa for finding exact. That is happened to be our lovely Madhura Pradeep. Thank You Shri Kripa.
Shri Kripa also started writing foodie blog very  recently. All the best you 2 and keep going...It might help some one some where that is what I believe.
I have used urid dal, roasted chenna /Huri kadale/pottu kadale, rice flour, butter and white sesame seeds.
Instead of urid flour I have dry roasted urid dal and then powdered and used it. This particular Chakkuli does not take much oil and it is crisp, aromatic and stays fresh for many days.

Lets see the recipe Now :

Ingredients :

Rice flour : 4 Cups
Urid dal : 1 Cup
Roasted Chenna /Huri Kadale/Pottu kadale : 1 Cup
Red chilly powder : 1 Teaspoon
White Sesame Seeds : 2 Tablespoons
Butter : 2 Tablespoons
Salt : As required
Cooking Oil : 2 Cups


Method : 

1. Clean and dry roast Urid dal till the raw smell disappear. (Slightly golden brown). Let it cool. Dry grind and keep it aside.

2. Dry grind roasted chenna and keep it aside.

3. Take a big bowl. Add rice flour. powdered urid dal, powdered chenna dal, sesame seeds, salt and butter.

4. Mix all the ingredients nicely and then add required water. Prepare chukkuli dough. ( Not too hard or not too soft).


5. Kneed the dough nicely and divide the dough into smaller portions.
6. Apply oil to chakkuli preparing mould and place the chakkuli plate inside.
7. Put a portion of chakkuli dough and close the lid. Keep it aside.

8. Take a plate and press the mould and form chakkuli in circle shape. Prepare 4 to 5 chakkulis.
9. Now keep a frying pan on the fire. Add oil and let it get hot. (Medium flame).


10. Drop the prepared chakkuli and fry them on both sides till golden brown.


11. Remove the done chakkuli and place it on kitchen tissue. So that extra oil will be absorbed.
12. Repeat the same and prepare remaining chakkuli in the same way.


13. Hot chakkulis are ready to serve. Serve as you wish.

14. Let the fried chakkulis turn cool. Put them in a clean Jar. Enjoy when ever you feel like.

Note : 

I have used fresh roasted and powdered urid dal powder. It adds to the taste and aroma. You can  use ready available urid flour got from the shop. Dry roast the flour slightly just before using. Add only required butter. Adding more butter to chakkuli dough might spoil the chakkuli while frying. ( It might turn as powder because it turns too soft while frying). Adding more /less chilly optional. You can also add jeera/cumin seeds along with sesame seeds.
Time : 40 Minutes.
Serves : 25 to 30 Chakkulis can be prepared. ( Depends on shape and size).
