Chakli or Murukku or Desi pretzel is a crispy snack made out of rice flour batter.It is a fried savoury much loved by kids and adults.They come in various flavours like butter,tomato, spicy ,non spicy depending on the target audience.It is a great way to have some tidbits.Crunchy savories with tea taste just so great.You can also have some crunch to normal dal and rice.Gluten-free Chakli is my way of add crunch into my daily routine.It is perfect companion for my evening tea or whe someone comes home.This recipe is our take on the normal rice chakli by making it out of brown rice instead of normal white rice.I try to use brown rice whenever possible.
How food is important as a business?
Traditionally, Indian women have always been making these at home.Papad,chakli,biscuits,mawa cake, dhokla are all sold in small packets by many women help groups or gruh-udyog.It is a common sight in local trains to see people selling home made snacks.
This is a boon to those who are in stressful jobs and need something to eat on-the-go.
Kids love crunchy snacks so many buy it from outside.Most working couples hardly have time after travelling for long hours.
Buying it from women help groups helps them have some extra money.Makes them independent in the long run.It helps them monetarily also.
Now with lock-down in place , it is time to make your own.
