- Add the Whole wheat flour in a muslin cloth fold them. Place it inside a steamer and steam them. Steam them in medium flame for 20 minutes. After 20 minutes remove them from the steamer and allow them to cool down completely.
- Add them into a fine mesh strainer and sieve them to remove any lumps.
- Add in salt to taste, Chilli powder, Ajwain seeds and Gram flour and mix them. Add in the butter.
- Mix the butter well. Sprinkle water and roll them into a dough slowly into a chapati dough consistency.
- I have used the Murukku Maker with the star shape. Add in the dough into the murukku maker and start pressing.
- Start pressing the chakli into the hot oil and deep fry them. Fry until the sssh sound ceases.
- Delicious Melt in mouth chaklis are now ready to serve.
- The Gram flour added makes the Murukku even more soft.
- The Muslin cloth is used so that any extra moisture is absorbed.
- After steaming the Wheat Flour get the rice flour consistency.
- Its a bit difficult to find out if the murukku is cooked or not as the color remains the same. Remove the murukku from oil once the ssssh sound ceases.
