In a mixing bowl, add cream, oil, turmeric powder, red chili powder, roasted cumin powder, sesame seeds, asafoetida.
Mix them all together and then add rice flour and salt.
Mix well with fingertips till crumb like mixture is formed.
Knead into a smooth dough with light hands by gradually adding water to it.
The dough should be soft, smooth and moist. I have covered and kept aside for 20 minutes. cover with a damp cloth.
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.
Now make two balls from the kneaded dough. Roll into a log shape and then put it into the chakli pressing machine.
Close the machine.
Line a baking tray with baking paper. Take the chakli press machine and start making chakli from center and press into a spiral shape in 3-4 rounds and then cut them and join the last round as shown in the picture. These will come out properly with practice. Brush them with oil.
Bake in the preheated oven @ 180 C for 20-25 minutes or till golden. (The chakli got vanished before taking pictures. The next batch is still in the baking process).
Let the chakli cool down. The chaklis are ready to serve. You can store them in the airtight container for 15 days and enjoy with a cup of tea or coffee.
The chaklis are looking so crisp.
