Baked Chakli Puris

Make it at home and enjoy some guilt free snack, she says. "I did use butter, but you may substitute it with sour cream if you want," she adds :-).

Ingredients:

  • Rice flour: 1 cup (I used brown rice flour)
  • Urad dal flour: 1 tbsp
  • Low fat butter: 2 tbsp
  • Salt to taste
  • Sugar: 1/2 tsp
  • Ginger: 1/2 tsp freshly minced or grated
  • Garlic: 1/2 tsp freshly minced or grated
  • Green chilli: 1 small minced
  • Cumin seeds: 1/2 tsp
  • White sesame seeds: 1/2 tsp
  • Water: 2-3 tbsp

Method:

  • Pre-heat oven at 375 degree Fahrenheit and grease a baking tray.
  • Mix all the above ingredients with butter. Don't add water yet. Work with hands and mix well till it becomes crumbly. Now add 1 tbsp water at a time to make a semi soft dough.
  • Pinch a small portion of dough and flatten in hands in circles.
  • Place it in baking tray. Finish the dough like wise making more snackies (isn't this a cool name?). It should be 1/8″ to 1/4″ in thickness. Don't make them too thick.
  • Put it in the oven and bake them for 25-30 minutes till they become pinkish golden on both sides. Flip them half way and rotate the tray from front to back for even baking.
  • The crispy, spicy and flavourful rice Snackies are ready o be served.
