Chakli / Murukku / Chakkuli ( all time favorite snack )

Makes: 250 g


1 cup ( 100 g ) boiled rice ( Idli rice )
60 ml thick coconut milk
1 cup ( 100 g ) urad dal
1/2 teaspoon til ( sesame seeds )
1/2 teaspoon jeera ( cumin seeds )
1 teaspoon butter
1/2 teaspoon salt ( or to taste )
250 ml cooking oil


Soak the rice in water for 1 hour. Drain out water and grind to a fine paste with 25 ml coconut milk ( instead of water add coconut milk during grinding ).

Roast the urad dal on a dry tawa until light brown and make a fine powder in a mixer.

Add the powdered urad dal to the rice paste.

Then add til, jeera, butter and salt to taste. Mix well and make it as thick as chapati dough with remaining coconut milk ( approximately 25 ml )

Put this chakkuli dough in a murukku / chakali mould and press it to chakali shapes ( or desired shapes and sizes ) on a paper.

Heat oil in a wide kadai / frying pan and reduce heat to medium. Transfer this chakkulis / murukku into the cooking oil and fry on a medium heat until light golden color in batches. Drain out oil and store in an air tight container.
