2 cups rice flour (slightly coarse for more crispiness)
1 cup urad flour (black gram)
1 teaspoon white sesame seeds
1/2 tsp jerra
1/2 stick butter/oil
salt to taste
2 cups ghee for frying
Fry urad flour in a dry pan on the flame until it darkens a few shades. Let it cool down. Mix the rice flour, urad flour, butter, sesame seeds and jeera in a large container. Add sufficient quantity of water and salt to the flour and butter mixture. Mix all the ingredients by hand to make a soft dough and knead well. Using a chakli press, press the dough to make round chaklis on a plastic sheet. Deep fry the chaklis until brown over slow heat.

Chaklis are usually very crisp. You can make urad flour at home by washing the urad dal, drying in the sun, frying slightly and grinding to a fine powder.
