Method -

1. Take a big bowl and mix all the flours, add sesame 
    seeds, carom, cumin, red chilli powder, asafoetida, salt 
    and 3/4 cup of oil. Mix it nicely.
2. Add water gradually and make a soft dough, the 
    consistency of the dough should be like parantha dough, 
    cover and keep it for 1/2 an hour.
3. Take a small amount of dough, make a sylindrical shape
    and put it inside the chakli maker, close it.
4. Spread a parchment paper or foil paper on a smooth surface
   and make some round chaklis on the foil paper beforehand.
5. Heat a heavy bottomed frying pan or karahi with oil in it, 
    the oil should not be too hot. 
6. Deep fry the chaklis till it gets golden brown on both the 
    sides on low heat, do not fry it on high heat other wise it 
    will remain uncooked.
7. Make all, take it out on a big plate and when it comes 
    to room temperature store it in an air tight container.


Note - If you find it difficult to get the black gram dal flour and moong dal flour in stores then you can make it at home too. Wash and sun dry the dal, heat a karahi and dry roast it until it slightly changes it's colour, let it come to room temperature. Grind it in a
grinder mixer to a fine powder, it is ready to use.
