This is one of my favorite snacks! Its cripsy and delicious and you cannot stop eating it. This is pretty popular all over India and goes by so many names, Chakli, Sakli, Murukku, Chakri. The recipe also varies quite a bit, some are made with rice flour and some are made with flour. Ive never met a Chakli I didnt like, however I do favor the lighter tasting rice flour and butter version. The recipe and ingredients are simple but you do need a Chakli press which is similar to a Spritz cookie gun. Ive never tried using the gun for this snack but feel free to see if it works!
