Rice Flour Murukku | Kaarappusa | Chakli | Jantikas | Chakrams | How to make Andhra style Murukulu - This Rice Flour snack has many names in different regions. It is called Karappusa/Murukku/Jantikas/Chakrams/Chakli and other names. But whatever the title, the snack itself is a delicious and great snack for all times.

Try this Andhra-style; time pass snack called RiceFlour Chakrams. There are many kinds in these Chakrams. Some add some ingredients and others some more. The way they make changes with the region. And so does the taste. They can be made with Millets too. I will share those recipes later.

A few things about Rice Flour: • It is better to wash and dry Rice in the sun for the Rice Flour. • • It is always better to mill Rice Flour rather than run it in a mixie. In case you want to use it in a mixie, better sieve it 2-3 times before using it.•

Tips

What can be a substitute for Black Gram?

• Black Gram adds a little bit of stickiness and crispiness to the Karappusa and enhances the taste. In case you do not like Black Gram, you can use Sesame Seeds.•

  1. Add Mirchi powder if you like.

  2. These Chakrams/chaklis/Murukku have a strong taste of Ajwain and will have a light colour. You could add Mirchi Powder, but that will make Murukkus seem red.

Why are Chakrams soft and soggy some times?

  • Snacks such as Karappusa/Chakrams, anything you make with Flour, need an intense flame and good heat. Only then they will turn out crunchy.

  • Oil should be very hot before you add Chakrams to the Oil. Reduce the fire and put in two, lesser than the pan's size, into the Oil. After the Chakrams are dropped into Oil, they should be fried only on a high flame.

  • Household stoves do not have so much flame and heat. That is why keep frying in small batches.

  • For the second batch, reduce fire, add and then fry again on a high flame.

  • The dough has to be a little soft for the Chakrams. If the dough is too hard, the Chakrams come out dry.
