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 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.
