It is amazing and totally mind-boggling how changing just one ingredient in a recipe can give you something awesomely different! Well, in Wheat Flour Chakli we replaced rice flour with whole wheat flour, tweaked the proportions of the other ingredients slightly to suit, and tried making chakli with the dough. The dough is also kneaded after steaming the flour, which is quite unique to this jar snack.
