kaju chakli recipe | instant cashew nut chakli | diwali cashew murukku with step by step photo and video recipe. indian festivals are always termed or associated with sweets or desserts which are prepared and served with friends and family. even though it is an important part of the festival celebration, it is incomplete without any side snacks. to make it complete, one of the easy and simple snack recipes is kaju chakli recipe known for its taste and soft texture.

well, i guess many would be confused by now about the name for this chakli recipe. you may think that it is entirely made with kaju or cashew and deep-fried till crisp. to clear the confusion, it is not completely made with cashew. the cashew paste is only added to the rice and besan flour to have the additional creamy kaju flavour. the amount of kaju paste added is a comparatively small amount, yet it has a significant enhancement to the taste and flavour of the rice flour chakli recipe. as matter of fact, you may add any type of dry fruit paste to make it more interesting and flavourful.

furthermore, some more additional tips, suggestions and variants to the kaju chakli recipe. firstly, i have mainly used the combination of rice and besan flour to make this chakli with the addition of kaju flavour in it. you may choose any type of flour or lentil as a replacement for rice flour. secondly, if it starts breaking when shaping the chakli with chakli maker, add 1-2 tsp of maida or plain flour to make it sticky. i have skipped making a healthy option, but it would taste great when plain flour is added. lastly, deep fry these chaklis in a medium to low flame to make them crisp and evenly cooked.
