Show me for chaklis

  1. Combine the red millet flour, soya flour, rice flour and butter in a bowl and mix well.
  2. Add the ginger-green chilli paste, cumin seeds, sesame seeds and salt and knead into a soft dough using enough water.
  3. Put the mixture into a chakli press and press out round swirls of the dough onto a dry, flat surface, working closely from the centre to the outside of the swirls (approximately 50 mm. (2") diameter). You will get about 20 to 22 chaklis.
  4. Heat the oil in a kadhai, gently lift each chakli using a flat spoon and deep-fry over a slow flame till they turn golden brown in colour from both sides. Drain on absorbent paper.
  5. Cool and serve or store in an air-tight container.
