Chiroti rava – 1 cup *(refer note)

Rice flour – 2 cups *(refer note)

  8. Make chaklis in the chakli press .

  10. Once cool store it in an air tight container .


My notes :

  • You may use idiyappam flour instead of rice flour .
  • You may also add bombay rawa instead of chiroti rawa .
  • You may add 3 tbsp approx sieved fried gram flour (hurikadle) .
  • By adding hurikadle powder the chaklis becomes crisp .
