Chakali Flour in Marathi

Makes : 1 kg

Ingredients:
1½ cup Chana Dal
½ cup Urad Dal
½ cup Moong Dal
2 cup white Rice
¼ cup Sabudana (Sago)
50 Grams Cumin seeds (approx 3-4 tbsp)
Handful of Coriander seeds

Method:
1) Wash all dals separately. Dry each of them on separate cotton cloth. Dry them in shadow.
2) Wash Rice and drain water. Spread over a cloth and let it dry in the shade, not under direct sunlight.
3) Dry roast each dals separately on medium heat, until golden brown. Dry roast rice and Sago separately. Rice should get pinkish color (eat a small grain, it should taste crunchy). Sago should puff up a little and color should change to off-white. Then roast Cumin seeds and Coriander seeds until aromatic.
4) Let all roasted Items cool down. Mix all and grind to fine powder. This Blended Flour is used to make Chakali. 

Tips:
1) To remove dirt, clean dals with damp cotton cloth. Clean each dal separately. This method can be used instead of washing.
2) All dals should be split and hulled (ie without peel).

  6. Vaidehi, I just bought the Bhajnee from the chandrika website posted by the other dude. But the shipping cost me more than the Bhajnee itself. I bought it anyway because I want to make chakli and thalipeeth and I dont have any other option at this point.

    HOwever, for the future, is there any other way to source this Bhajnee peeth for much cheaper? I am in the Atlanta area and I do not have resources to make the Bhajnee myself. Please let me know if you have any ideas by writing to herschel dot P at gmail dot com... Any suggestions are much appreciate. Dhanyawaad!

  7. I searched for Thalipeeth bhajani in many Indian stores but couldn't find it. However, if I find any other source, I will surely let you know..
    One thing you can do is, you can ask to bring Bhajani, if someone is coming from India. I do the same. :) because Homemade Bhajani tastes better than readymade one.

  16. Hi,
    Does this recipe involve soaking of the crushed powders? I see from the comments that it is needed but the recipe doesn't mention that. If so how long do we soak it for? Or is it that the boiling water should be used at time of mixing?
