Dry fry moon daal till it started changing colour. ( do not make it brown ). Powder this and keep aside.

In a deep bowl mix measured rice flour, daal powders, asafoetida, jeera , salt and butter. Butter should be at room temparature. Mix everything very well, Let the butter mix evenly.

Take a small portion from this and add little water and make dough like roti.

Using star blade fill the chakli press with this batter,


Heat oil. Keep the stove on medium. Press directly to oil or make small chakli in a oiled plastic or aluminium sheet and put this in oil.
