Why does chakli become soft?
Always fry the chakli on medium-high heat. The chakli batter is dense, and we want even the insides of the batter to get evenly cooked. If you’ll fry it on high heat, the insides might remain undercooked and when you take them out will feel soft while eating, which isn’t great.
Why do chakli breaks while frying?
If the chakli breaks while forming them, this means that the dough does not have enough moisture. Add 1 or 2 tablespoons of water and knead the dough again. If you are not getting proper shape this means that the dough is too moist. Add a bit of rice flour and knead again.
What to do if chakli becomes soft after frying?
