About Chakli

Also known as Chakri – or Murukku in South India, traditional chakli are lovely, light and crunchy spirals of fried dough.

They are commonly enjoyed as a Diwali Snack, and are a great balance to the Diwali Sweets typically made before badi Diwali (big Diwali). Filled with lots of savory spices, chakri can be made mild or spicy, depending on your preference. They also make for a nice tea time snack.

There are many different versions and methods for making chakli, but this is by far my favorite chakli recipe. It is a classic family recipe of an instant chakli that uses rice flour as the base for the crunchiest and lightest dough that really lets the seasonings shine.

My step-by-step photos and foolproof tips will help walk you through the easy process of making the best chakli from scratch!

Ingredients You Need

To make authentic chakli at home you need rice flour, gram flour, butter or oil and the usual Indian spices. You will also need a Chakli Maker – which on pressing releases extruded strands of dough that are then shaped into tight spirals and fried crisp.

You can add more red chili powder or even a bit of garlic-green chili paste to make spicy chakli. If you prefer some garlic or ginger flavor, feel free to add some garlic paste or ginger paste to the dough.

To make gluten-free chakli, simply skip asafoetida in the recipe or use asafoetida that is packaged and sold as gluten-free.
