  • Likewise, make all the chaklis.

Frying chakli

  • Heat the oil in a pan, and add a small piece of dough and check the temperature.
  • If the piece of dough comes up slowly, the oil is ready to fry, and if the piece comes up quickly, the oil is too hot.
  • When the oil is ready for deep fry, gently drop the chakli in the oil.
  • About 3 to 4 chaklis can be drop-in a pan, it depends on the size of the pan.
  • After turning golden color on one side, flip it and fry it.
  • When the chaklis fried, lift it in the paper napkins. This will remove excess oil from it.
  • Similarly, fry all the chaklis and leave them to cool to room temperature.
  • Take your chaklis ready, keep it in an airtight container after it cools down.
  • Serve with hot tea whenever guests arrive at home.
