A very attractive chakli with a nice, green flavour and absolutely awesome flavour, the Palak Chakli is a jar snack that is sure to get a five-star rating from your family and friends!

It will also be a good change from the usual savouries made during festivals. We have made the Palak Chakli using a dough of rice flour and besan perked up with a flavourful and colourful spinach puree.

When making the dough, add water gradually because the spinach puree itself contribute a part of the required moisture. So, slowly add only the required amount of extra water to make the dough, or else the crispness and shape of your chakli will be compromised.

Serve it to your family or guests along with tea, and watch them enjoy the taste while also wondering what this snack is made of!

You can also try other jar snacks like the Moong Dal Nimki or Methi Crispies .
