- Grease the chakli machine well and put the star-shaped blade inside. I have the normal original machine. You can use other types you have.
- Form two balls from the kneaded dough. Roll it into a stick and then put it in the chakli press machine.
- Line a baking tray with parchment paper. Take the chakli press machine and start making chakli from the middle and press it into a spiral shape in 3-4 rounds, then cut and connect with the last round. These will come out right with practice. Brush them with oil.
- Bake in preheated oven at 180C for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown.
