2 tsp sesame seeds (til)
1 tsp chilli powder
a pinch of asafoetida (hing) , optional

Method

For baked chaklis

  1. Combine all the ingredients in a bowl, mix well and knead into a semi-soft dough using enough water.
  2. Put the mixture into a chakli press and press out round swirls of the dough onto a greased baking tray, working closely from the centre to the outside to the swirls (approximately 50 mm. (2") diameter). You will get about 30 chaklis.
  3. Bake these chaklis in a pre-heated oven at 180°c (360°f) for 30 to 35 minutes, turning all the chaklis once after 15 to 20 minutes.
  4. Cool the {span class="bold1"}baked chalkli{/span}and store in an air-tight container.

Handy tip :

  1. Adding 1 tbsp of oil instead of 1 tsp in this recipe reduces the cooking to 25 minutes and also makes the chakli a little softer.
