As Janmashtami is round the corner, today I am sharing the famous butter chakli recipe. How many of you like the butter murukku sold in Grand Sweets or Adyar Anandha Bhavan? It’s loved by everyone is the answer. If you follow the correct measurements given below, this butter murukku recipe, it’s a fool proof recipe even for beginners in the kitchen. As Lord Krishna is fond of butter, try this on the day of Gokulashtami which falls on 14/8/2017- Monday and get the blessings of little Krishna.

1. Roasting besan flour is optional, but it adds nice flavour to the butter murukku recipe.
2. Sieving all the flour yields soft and smooth dough.
3. Don’t skip fried gram flour, as it gives soft and melt in mouth chakli.
4. Jeera can be replaced with white/black sesame seeds for this butter chakli recipe.
5. Dough consistency:
a. If the dough is too moist, chakli cannot be shaped. Add 2 tsp of rice flour to shape it.
b. If the dough is too dry, long thread like murukku cannot be got. Drizzle very little water and knead again.
c. If the murukku is hard or dense, add 1 tsp of butter.
6. Don’t add butter more than mentioned, else the murukku dissolves in the oil.
7. Grease the chakli press with little oil before stuffing the dough, so it will be easy to press.
8. If preparing in large quantity, just double the ingredients and prepare the dough in batches.
9. Don’t give resting time for the dough otherwise it changes in colour while frying.
10. Always cool the benne chakli completely before storing in an airtight container.
