These baked chaklis........
They are in no way less....equally tasty, crispy and the deep fried ones...when I made these, I realised what amount of oil which would have gone inside our stomach has been saved!!!
This is a recipe of Tarla Dalal

But a word of warning, after my experience with these Chaklis!!
Since they are not deep fried, in the end, you find it really spicy..
If you like it that way, leave it...otherwise, I feel , you should have a check before adding chilli powder and salt...
When we add butter, ghee etc to the dough, it suppresses the spice, also they get deep fried...but when they are baked, have a check on them, please!!!

Rice flour - 1 cup
Fresh curds - 1/2 cup
Hing powder - 1/4 tsp
Chilli powder - 1/2 - 3/4 tsp
Salt to taste
White sesame seeds - 2 tsps
Cooking oil - 1 tsp

Recipe cuisine: South Indian; Category: Snacks
Prep time: 5 mts; Baking time: totally 30-35  mts, for one batch(I baked in 2 batches)

Yields roughly 20 chaklis

Rice flour and curds taken in a bowl(By cup I mean, the standard US measurement cup)

Hing powder, salt to taste, sesame seeds and chilli powder added

1 tsp oil added

Everything mixed well, rather crumbled well

Then carefully sprinkle water little by little, and knead to a soft dough. Let it rest till the Oven is pre heated to 180 degree Celsius/350 degrees F

This is the murukku press with which I made...somehow I feel more comfortable with these than the modern ones, though the modern ones are very easy to operate

On a greased tray, chaklis made in swirls

Shoved inside the hot oven and getting baked for 30-35  minutes, but remember to flip them over after 20 minutes...

Taken out after 30 minutes, and let outside to cool for 5 minutes

Look at the golden color, they were really so good!!!
