Chakkali/ Muruku

Rice flour – 4 cup
Uraddal flour-1 cup
Roasted Chana Powder – 1cup
Pepper Powder – 1tsp
Jerra Powder – 1tsp
Til – 2tbs
Red chili powder- 1tsp
Salt to taste
Oil for deepfry

In a pan dry fry rice flour and urad dal flour separately for 3 to 4 min.
Take a mixing bowl add rice flour, urad dal flour, roasted chana powder, pepper powder, red chili powder, jeera powder, melted butter, salt and hot oil mix it thoroughly with water to the Chapathi dough consistency to make Muruku/Chakkali
Heat oil for deepfrying. 

You need a Muruku mold to make this, There are different attachments comes with a murukku /Chakkalimaker (just like the food processor attachment). I use single star attachment to make this murukku / Chakkali but three star can also be used to make a different shape.
Now take a small amount of dough and put it in the maker and close the maker.
Take an aluminum foil or Ziploc bags with some oil brushed on it, Start pressing the mould and slowly rotate the maker into a circle shape till you form a medium sized spirals.

 When Oil is hot enough to deep fry, add the murukku/ Chakkali one by one( just lift the murukku /Chakkali gently from the foil by using your hand and slowly drop it in the oil.

Deep fry until it becomes golden brown and remove from heat.
Let it cool for few minutes and store it in a air tight container.
