Tips for palak chakli. 1. Remember to make this spinach mixture and use it immediately, else you might lose its green colour. 2. When making the dough, add water gradually because the spinach puree itself contributes 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. 3. When deep-frying the chakli, keep the flame to medium else there is a chance of the chakli getting burnt.
