Baked Chaklis recipe - How to make Baked Chaklis

Preparation Time:    Baking time:  35 to 40 minutes.   Baking Temperature:  180°C (360°F)   Cooking Time:    Total Time:     Makes 30 chaklis.
Show me for chaklis.

  1. Combine all the ingredients in a bowl, mix well and knead into a semi-soft dough using enough water.
  2. Put the mixture into a chakli press and press out round swirls of the dough onto a greased baking tray, working closely from the centre to the outside to the swirls (approximately 50 mm. (2") diameter). You will get about 30 chaklis.
  3. Bake these chaklis in a pre-heated oven at 180°c (360°f) for 30 to 35 minutes, turning all the chaklis once after 15 to 20 minutes.
  4. Cool and store in an air-tight container.

Handy tip :

  1. Adding 1 tbsp of oil instead of 1 tsp in this recipe reduces the cooking to 25 minutes and also makes the chakli a little softer.
