Potato Chakli

Posted on Updated on

Chakli is a South Indian snack and needs no introduction and we prepare a variety of the same. I have already put up a few of them like the just as any of the other Chaklis I have put up before –  Rice Atta ChakliMoong Dal ChaklisMaida Chaklis and Sugarcane juice chakli. Today I would like to add yet another variety of the same to the long list – the Potato chakli.

What you need to have:

1. Boiled grated potato – 1 cup

2. Maida – 3 cups

3. Seasame seeds – 1 teaspoon

4. Cumin seeds – 1 teaspoon

5. Asafoetida powder – 1/2 teaspoon

6. Chilli powder – 1 teaspoon

7. Butter – 1 teaspoon (optional)

8. Pepper powder (white) – 1/2 teaspoon

9. Salt – taste

Ingredients of Potato chakli

What you do with what you have:

1. Wash, peal and cook potato in the cooker without adding water in the cooker container. On cooling grate it and keep it aside.

2. Tie maida in a thin muslin cloth and steam it in the cooker for about 20 minutes like you steam idlis. It will turn into lumps and just crush it with your hands and sieve it in the atta siever.

3. Mix sieved flour with steamed and grated potatoes along with cumin powder, sesame seeds, salt, chilli powder and pepper powder.

4. Add a very little water (if needed only) since potato is cooked smooth and has moisture in it. Make a soft dough to suit one’s chakli mould.

5. Place the dough in chakli mould and prepare chakli on a thick  plastic sheet in circular form.
