However, this has a tempering of mustard seeds and this recipe tastes quite similar to the store-bought one, and has a fresher taste and crispier mouth-feel. Try it out!

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.

If you are looking for authentic South Indian style chakli, then check out the recipe of Kai Murrukku. Made with a dough of rice and urad, this chakli like snack is shaped entirely by hand, which requires a bit of practice to master. It is often made during festivals like Janmashtami and Diwali, and tastes amazing with a cup of hot coffee.
