Published on September 5, 2015

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 ! ) .

With the festival tomorrow, here is a quick version that is made.

    Though I make murukku or chakli in different ways, I have not used poppy seeds in my recipe. It sounds interesting. Loved the colour of the chakli.

    Love chakris and these look delicious. Making instant chakri is a great idea. I usually make them into spirals before frying. This certainly is a quick method.

    We used to prepare chaklis during Ganpati Pooja. Chaklis are looking so crisp and crunchy. Perfectly made.

    Looks awesome Jayashree! This reminds me of Janmashtami back home where chakli was the first to be made. By gram flour do you mean besan? Or is it puthe powder.
