  1. 1. Sago/Sabudana Chakli<br />Sago/Sabudana is a very important ingredient for any fasting. We all prepare Sabudana kichadi for Sankashti post which remains a favorite. Today I would like to put up Sabudana chakli, something that tastes great and turns out very crispy too. Of course, this is not the first chakli on this blog – you may see several others here – Rice Atta Chakli, Moong Dal Chaklis, Maida Chaklis, Potato Chakli and Sugarcane juice chakli.<br />What you need to have:<br />1. Sabudana(Tapioca pearl) – 1/2 cup<br />2. Rice flour(very fine) – 2 cups<br />3. Maida – 1/2 cup (steamed)<br />4. Dalia dal – 1/2 cup5<br />5. Butter – 2 Tablespoons<br />6. Red chilli powder – 1 Teaspoon<br />7. Cumin powder – 1 Teaspoon<br />8. Black Sesame seeds – 1 Teaspoon<br />9. Salt – As per taste<br />Ingredients of Sabudana Chakli<br />What you do with what you have:<br />1. Soak Sabudana in water for about 5-6 hours till it is plumped up as shown in image.<br />2.

Ready to serve Sago chakli is as shown in the image below.<br />Ready to serve Sago Chakli<br />Number of Chaklis: 20<br />Serves – Many<br />Good to remember:<br />1. Sago should be of good quality. It should be soaked in water for at least 5-6 hours to avoid it to burst in oil.<br />2. Grind it in the mixer without adding extra water, draining all soaked water from it.<br />3. Mix all the flours, butter sago and knead the dough well to make it paliable.<br />4. Always fry chakli on medium adjusted flame (depending upon the size of your burner) <br />
