Rice flour Chakli !!! Crispy n crunchy !!!

Chaklis are one of the traditional savory snacks of indian khana....
No festival is complete without a crunchy munching...inorder to balance all the sweets we eat during festivals some savory or hot snack is a must !!
Chakli's are perfect accompainment for tea/ coffee....
They are good to grab n go during travel or journeys...even kids love to eat these crispy munchies...
Instead of adding butter and other fats i have used sourcream ....it not only provides the good buttery, sour taste but also helps in getting golden color n making them crunchy...
Will mention the alternative for sour cream as well, in my recipe..so scroll down.. :) :)

  6. Now divide this into portions according to the size of u r chakli press..
  7. Now using a star disc make chakli's ..
