Hey peeps….today’s recipe holds a special place in all households in any Indian kitchen during Diwali. Diwali is celebration of lights, colors and loads and loads of yummy food being cooked. It is celebrated by lighting up your homes and making rangolis. Neighbors, family and friends meet up in each others homes and eat yummy food. Chakli/Chakri is one such item which is a common Diwali food item. There is a variety of chakli made wheat chakli, rice chakli. We normally make rice chakli which is very simple to make and I end up making chakli strips more than the round ones. At the end it is the taste that matters for me. This is my mother in law’s special recipe which we have been following  since the beginning. In this method of making chakli the chakli will not be too hard as you get in shops they will be crisp but soft to bite. So take some time out from your busy schedule and surely try this method of making rice chakli.
