Chakkuli( Urd Muruku)

Chakkuli or Chakli is a fried snack prepared using rice flour as a main ingredient.
We in Karntaka/India call as Chakkuli in Kannada langurage. In TamilNadu it is called as Muruku. Chakli in Hindi and what ever we call this fried snack is liked by most of the fried lovers.

Chakkuli can be eaten at tea time, or as starter during the dinner or anytime of the day you can have chakkuli. Even you can pack some chakkuli for kids lunch box.
We can prepare chakkuli in many ways. I have done chakkuli with boiled urd dal and rice powder. Preparing this chakkuli is very easy.
Things Needed:
Urd Dal: 1 Cup
Rice powder: 4 cups
Butter: 2 Table spoons
Salt: to taste
Chilly Powder: 1 Tea spoon
Sesame Seeds: 1 Table spoon
Oil: 2 to 3 cups
Chakkuli Mould.

1. Roast urd dal and boil with 1 cup of water in the pressure cooker for 8 to 10 minutes. Leave it for cooling.
2. Keep a pan on the fire and heat. Now roast rice powder for 10 to 20 seconds will do. (Let the rice powder be warm). Leave it for cooling.
3. Take big bowl. Put cooled Urd dal. Remove the excess water and keep it aside, and smash in the hand nicely.
4. Add rice powder to the Urd dal mixture. Add salt, sesame seeds, chilly powder and 2 tablespoons of butter.
5. Mix it nicely. Use extra water drained water if only required and prepare chakkuli dough (It can be poori dough consistency)..
6. Now fill the chakkuli mould with chakkuli dough and close it. Roll chakkuli on the plate.
7. Keep a deep pan on the fire and heat. Add oil to the pan. Put chakkuli in the oil and fry them till crispy and take it out from the oil.

8. Repeat the same with the rest of the dough. Crispy Chakkuli is ready to serve.
9. Put them in a airtight bottle and close it when the fried chakkuli is cooled down.
Note: You can directly cook the urd dal with out roasting. Roasting dal will add aroma to the chakkuli. You can also add more chilly powder if you wish. You can also add jeera along with sesame seeds. Do not allow the prepared dough to be dry. You can cover the dough with wet kerchief or small towel. Do not refrigerate the dough. It may take more oil.
