Notes / tips

  • Make sure the oil is not very hot and also fry over medium low flame.
  • If you turn the flame high the chakli will remain uncooked from inside
  • If the oil is not hot the chakli may break and lot of froth will appear.
  • So always fry 3 to 4 at a time if kadhai is big you can fry 6 to 7 in a batch .
  • Keep the dough  covered as you make them in batches.
  • If the dough is left open it will dry a bit then knead again and proceed .
