Today is Krishna Janmashtmi, the birthday of Lord Shri Krishna, the creator and supreme personality. All praise to the Lord, who has been so merciful and greatful to us.

This day is usually celebrated by fasting, preprations of sweets and savoury followed by some snack. Here is an instant chakli that one can make quite easily..

Chakli, is a fried savoury, which is usually made by a pre made flour at home. Thus, it involves a week long preparation.These edible snacks are crunchy munchy and can be stored for a fortnight ( if they remain ! ) .
