palak murukku recipepalak chakli recipe | palak murukku recipe | spinach murukku with step by step photo and video recipe. there are several variation to the traditional chakli or murukku recipe which completely depends on the types and proportion of flours used. palak chakli or spinach murukku is one such variety with loads of spinach greens which makes it healthy and tasty too.

i have prepared this recipe very similar to my previous butter murukku recipe with the addition of spinach puree. also in this recipe i have not blanched the palak leaves before making a puree of it. this is because we are deep frying the palak chakli and deep frying is more than sufficient for the palak puree. further, i have also added green chillies while preparing the spinach puree. this adds the additional flavour and spice to the palak murukku; however it is completely optional. in addition even 4-5 mint leaves can also be added to give a minty flavour to the chaklis.

notes:

  • also do not fry too many chaklis at the same time as they may stick to each other.
  • additionally, if the dough is too stiff then chaklis will break when you try to shape them using mold. so few drops of water and knead again.
  • also, do not make the dough too soft. otherwise your chaklis will absorb too much oil.
  • furthermore, can use wet cloth, butter paper, news paper, plastic sheet or aluminium foil to press the chaklis.
  • finally, palak chakli taste stays good atleast for 3 weeks.
