Baked Ragi Chakli
A chakli is great evening snack that is best accompanied with tea. Though great for munching, they do not fall into the category of a healthy munchy. But, a Baked Ragi Chakl is definately a healthy alternative to the traditional one. It is baked, so you cut down on a lot of calories and who would have thought ragi to be a replacement for rice flour. With this recipe taste and health goes hand it hand.
- 3/4 cup Ragi flour
- 1/2 cup plain yogurt
- 2 tbsp whole wheat flour
- 1 tsp sesame seeds
- 1 tsp chilli powder
- A pinch of asafoetids
- Salt to taste
- 1 tsp oil
- Water for binding
Preheat the oven to a 180 degree celsius.
Take a large mixing bowl and combine ragi and wheat flour with sesame seeds, salt, chilli powder, and asafoetida/hing.
Add the yoghurt and water mixture to form a malleable dough.
Heat a tablespoon of vegetable oil and pour it into the dough.
Next, prepare the sheet pan and place a butter paper over it.
Using a chakli press, press out round swirls from the center to the edges onto the butter paper.
Bake for 20 minutes in a preheated oven, then flip and bake for another 10 minutes.
Allow it cool completely before storing in an airtight container and have a happy snack.
