Dough for chakli recipe:-
Take the rice flour and gram flour in a bowl.

Mix everything with a spoon.
Heat butter in a small pan and add hot butter to flour mixture.
Mix the butter with your finger tips with the flours..
Add this water in parts to the flour mixture. mix with a spoon.
Add more water as required and begin kneading.
Knead and form a dough.
Knead to a dough which is firm. cover and let the dough rest for 30 minutes.
Apply some oil in the chakli/murukku maker and place a portion of the dough inside it.
Tighten the lid and press the chakli maker to prepare the chakli.
Move in rounds to get a spiral shape. make the chaklis on butter paper or aluminium foil, so thats its easy to remove them.
Heat oil for deep frying in a pan. take a small piece of the dough and check the temperature of the oil. if the dough comes up gradually, then the oil is ready. if the dough sits at the bottom, the oil is still cold. if the piece of dough comes up briskly and quickly, the oil is too hot.
Lift the chakli gently and slid into the hot oil.
Fry 3 to 4 chaklis at a time. don't over crowd the kadai or pan while frying.
Fry the chaklis till golden.
Drain them on paper towels to remove excess oil.
Once the chaklis are cooled at room temperature, then store them in an airtight box or jar.
Serve chaklis plain as a snack with some masala chai.
