Multigrain Murukku | Healthy Murukku Chakli recipe
Multigrain Murukku or Chakli is a yummy and super healthy snack that can be made easily at home. I like savory snacks with my tea especially the crunchy, crispy one’s. This chakli has ragi, jowar,chickpea flour, flax seed, sesame etc. which makes these chakli super healthy 🙂 and your kids will not even notice these ingredients.
I made chaklis and sev with the dough and to be honest I liked the sev texture much better than chakli/murukku but the murukku was also great. I promise whatever shape you make, they will taste delicious. If you are making for kids, you can reduce the spiciness.
I also made these murukku/chakli without garlic but you can add crushed garlic for a super intense flavor and taste. Also I added curry leaves powder since i had it on hand but feel free to use chopped curry leaves in place of powder.
When you are deep frying, the oil should be medium hot, if the oil is too hot then the chaklis will fry faster but inside will be raw. Store the murukku/chaklis in an airtight container, they will stay fresh for a month. These make a healthy tea time snacks, nice school/office snacks and healthy food gifts. You can add crushed peanuts or cashew nuts to the dough for a nice bite and taste.
