Take a big bowl. Add turmeric, roasted jeera powder, sesame seeds, asafoetida, chilli powder, salt
as per taste. Mix all the dry mix well with a spoon.
Add malai (fresh cream ) to it. The malai is the homemade malai one which we take out from milk after boiling it and keeping it for sometime.
Add knead into a smooth dough with light hands by gradually adding water to it.
The dough should be soft, smooth and moist.
Now make two balls from it. Roll into a log shape and then put it into the chakli pressing machine. Grease nicely the chakli machine and put the star shape blade into it. I have the normal original machine. U can use other types u have.
Start heating sufficient oil in a kadai. Next take a nice plastic/melamine plate and press the chakli into spiral shapes. Take the chakli press machine and start making chakli from centre and press into spiral shape in 3-4 rounds and then cut them and join the last round as shown in picture. These will come out properly with practice.
Start frying the chaklis. The oil should be nicely heated. Now put one by one chakli into the kadai with the help of a flat spatula from the plate. Handle chakli with care while putting in the oil .Put chakli into the oil on high flame and then fry them on medium heat till golden and crisp.
Remove the chaklis and drain on the absorbent paper.
let it cool and serve. These chaklis can be stored for 15 days.
They will become crisp once they are nicely cooled. So wait till they get cool and then munch on them.
