  • Grated garlic - ¼ tsp

  • Salt - as per taste
  • Curds - ½ tbsp
  • Oil - 1 tsp
DIRECTIONS:
Step 1 Combine the bajra flour, whule wheat flour, garlic, nigella seeds, green chili paste, and salt in a deep bowl and mix well. Rub the butter into the flour mixture using your fingertips until the mixture resembles bread crumbs. Step 2 Add the curds and knead them into a soft dough using little water. Put the mixture into a chakli press and press out round whirls of the dough onto a newspaper or aluminum foil working closely from the center to the outside of the whirl.  Step 3 Heat the oil in a deep kadhai, gently lift each chakli using a flat spoon, and deep-fry, a few at a time, over a medium flame till they turn gulden brown in culor from both the sides.  Step 4 Drain on absorbent paper—coul and store in an air-tight container.
