wheat flour chakli recipe | Indian aata chakli | gehun ke aate ki chakli | wheat flour murukku has a very different flavour and mouth-feel, equally tasty but slightly softer than the normal rice flour chakli. Learn how to make Indian aata chakli.

To make wheat flour chakli, place the whole wheat flour in a muslin cloth. Tie it tightly. Place it in hot steamer and steam for 15 minutes. Remove the flour from the muslin cloth and cool slightly, the whole wheat flour must have become hard. Break into small pieces and blend in a mixer till smooth. Transfer the mixture into a deep bowl, add all the other ingredients and knead into a soft dough using enough water. Divide the dough into 2 equal portions. Take a portion of the dough and press it into a chakli “press” and cover it with the lid. Press out 50 mm. (2”) diameter round swirls of chakli onto an inverted flat board or thali, working closely from the centre to the outside to get approx. 25 chaklis. Press the chaklis very gently with the back of a flat ladle. Repeat steps 8 to 10 to make 1 more batch of 25 chaklis. Heat the oil in a deep non-stick pan, deep fry the chaklis on a medium flame, till they turn golden brown in colour and crisp from both the sides. Drain on an absorbent paper. Cool and store in an air-tight container.

It is amazing and totally mind-boggling how changing just one ingredient in a recipe can give you something awesomely different! Well, in gehun ke aate ki chakli we have replaced rice flour with whole wheat flour, tweaked the proportions of the other ingredients slightly, and tried making chakli with the steamed dough.

You will love the homely taste and melt-in-the-mouth texture of this Indian aata chakli. What lends a unique texture to this chakli is the steaming of the wheat flour in a muslin cloth, while the rest of the procedure remains the same as the other varieties of chakli.

You need to buy a ‘chakli press’ from the market to make this wheat flour murukku. It comes with 10 to 12 types of moulds which can be used to make crunchy snacks like chakli, sev, gathiya etc. You can also try your hand at other jar snacks like the Methi Puri or Seedai.

Tips for wheat flour chakli. 1. Ensure that you keep the wheat flour in a muslin cloth only as it is thin and will allow the flour to cook and harden. 2. Tie the muslin cloth with one to two ends of that cloth itself if possible. We suggest that you do not use a rubber band. There is a possibility that the rubber band might break or loosen due to the steam. 3. Keep the tied muslin cloth on a perforated plate in the steamer. 4. You need to be a little careful when deep-frying these chaklis though. Do not keep turning them often as they are soft and will break. Just move them around occasionally.

जब मैने बनाये हुए चकली को घर के सभी लोगो को दिया तो सभी आश्चर्य करने लगे कि चावल के आटे की एवजी में गेंहू के आटे का उपयोग किया है, बाकी सामग्री के परिणाण में भी थोडा सा परिवर्तन करके चकली बनाई है। गेंहू के आटे से बनने वाली चकली का स्वाद बहुत अनोखा होता है
