  1. Thats looking so tempting!...its been ages since I had one..:(..

  2. Thanks so much for making me know that there is an english version :)

  3. Shrivali,
    thanks for your comment...

    you are most welcome..

  4. My Maharashtrian neighbour makes this wonderful chaklis and everytime she cooks this i am amazed at the efforts they put in,coz the dough is so thick and it really drains me out when i help her squeeze the dough thru chakli making utensil,and mine circles never come out tightly rolled....maybe i need some more practise..and yeah frying them on medium flame takes almost half day(coz she makes of 1 kg flour)..but the efforts are worth putting in,coz at the end we just can't stop munching on these crispy devils......

  5. Hi Alka,
    Yeah, very takes lot of time, but worth putting efforts :P .. i am just mad for Chakli...

  6. wow looks very good. I like to have them with tea. nice pic.

  7. yes Bhavna,
    It tastes really great with Chai.. :P

  8. We had to add lots of extra Butter than specified to stop it from dissolving in the oil. Otherwise, rest of the recipe is perfect.

  9. Where can I get good bhajani to make chakalis in the US? Alternatively, how can I make the bhajani at home?

  10. Hi Ananva
    You have to ask at your nearer Indian store. You can prepare Chakali flour at home if you have a mixi with good power..You won't get fine powder if you don't have good grinder mixer..
    here is the recipe - Chakali Bhajani

  11. The picture is soo absolutely tempting!! my mom cn never make them really well. i mean they're good but not awesome,there aways seems to be something missing!!
    i'l try yours and tell you how it comes out!
    but is it too difficult to prepare them if for the first time without any help?


  12. Hi Karishma,
    It is not at all difficult if you have Chakali flour ready.. You will definitely make it well..Best of luck and happy diwali

  14. Thanks vrushali for your comment..

  15. Vaidehi, thanks for sharing ur recipe. Do you know if there's anything close to a chakali press that can used here in the US, was not available to find one in my local indian store. Have tried big icing nozzles, but the dough is just too think.

  16. Hi Manisha

    It is difficult to make chakali without chakali press.
    If it is okay, you may borrow Chakali press from your friend. :)

    1. Hi Vaidehi
      From past two years i am making chakali following your recipe for Diwali. I have one issue they break in oil then i have to add dry bhajani to the kneaded dough till they stop breaking. The chakalis turn around very nice and every one appreciate them. But if you can suggest some thing so that they dont break in oil. Thanks a lot for your efforts in putting such nice recipes.

  19. Hi vaidehi
    I followed your recipe to the dot, yet my chakali has gone soft after a few hrs and few dissolved in the oil, I have been going thru the recipe over and over to understand wht I missed, but all I cud think is may be the flame of more towards high than medium. Any tips for redemption :(

  20. Hello Anuradha

    Yes, the temperature of oil has to be perfect. If its high, then chakali wll look all done from outside. But inside its uncooked, ultimately they will turn soft. If you fry them on low heat. it will become oily and bit hard. Also, if the 'mohan' added (oil added in the flour) is insufficient can cause soft chakalis.
