Rice powder - 3 cups
Urad dal 1 cup
Butter 1 stick
Cumin seeds 2 tsp
Oil for deep frying
dry roast the urad Dal until it turnslight brown.cool and powder.
In a mixing bowl add powdered urad dal,salt,cumin seeds,rice powder and melted butter. Prepare a soft dough adding enough water. The dough should be bound together and not crumbly.
Now fill it into the chakkuli press and make chakkulies over wax paper .
Heat oil and when the temperature is appropriate drop the chakkuli and fry till they turn brown and crisp.
Note: Typically, this Rao family strongly disagrees storing of awesomely made crisp fried snacks and I never had to worry about storing since they are finished off on the same day....but, Chakkuli can be stored in an airtight container for a couple weeks.
