Chakri - Crispy Spiral Rice Flour Snacks

Chachi was in the kitchen this morning, making chakri, this was before 8.00am! Where does she get her energy? I wish I had her energy genes! The chakri are for ruhani sufro, Chachi takes ruhani sani to Khane every Thursday morning.


Recipe
1 lb and 12oz rice flour
7 oz butter
3-4 green chillies; minced
1 tablespoon sesame seeds
1/4 tspn ajwain
1/4 tspn tumeric
juice of 1 lemon
water to mix


Method
Place the rice flour, sesame seeds, ajwain, turmeric, salt, green chillis and salt; mix well.
Add melted butter and lemon juice, and mix
Add enough water to make a firm dough, knead well.
Place the dough in a sev maker, using the chakri nozzle (star)
Carefully make a spiral with the sev maker on to the frying ladle or plastic, gently place into the karai and fry until gold brown. It should be crispy and crunchy.

I have eaten store bought chakri and loved them... I would love to my own... where can I purchase a sev maker?

any Indian shop should carry it. It is also used to make ghantia, thin sev, etc. You just change the base plate
