Salt - To taste
Baking powder - 1 pinch
 Oil - to fry

Method:

 Wash the greens, cut them and boil adding little salt, pinch of baking powder to retain the green colour. Blend the purée and let it cool.






In a large platter take the three flours, sesame seeds, little salt and 2 tbsps oil. Mix them.






Knead this adding the purée little by little.








Make the dough and set it aside.









 Grease the chakli mould and put the dough into it.







Make chaklis and keep them on on a greased surface.







Heat the oil in a pan and fry them on medium and low flame turning the sides until crisp.







Remove them on an absorbent paper. Allow them to cool before putting them in an air tight container. Enjoy them with your tea.

  8. Congratulations Shobha.
    This is my daughter's favourite but she wants hard and crispy ones whenever I make, it becomes only crispy.
    Mint is an additional bonus taste .

  12. Congrats Shobhaji! Chakli is an eternal fav snack of mine. How I wish I could have these with a cup of coffee right now. I dont make these snacks often at home now but hopefully this Diwali, this would be a must try at my end. I love the addition of palak in them, must have given out a great flavour as well.
