How to Prepare Bhajanichi Chakali / Multigrain Flour Chakali: Diwali Snacks(Diwali Pharal)

Hello Foodies, 
        Maharashtrian style bhajanichi chakli without which Diwali cannot be celebrated. Chakali can be prepared in different ways like Rice flour chakli, wheat flour chakali, moong dal chakali, jowar flour chakli, etc. This chakali is prepared using chakali chi bhajani. You can find hardly anybody who doesn't like chakali. These chaklis are my family's all-time favorite snack too!

          Also, you can use this healthy and hearty blend of grains to make flatbreads, yeast-free bread, muffins, and cookies. Multigrain flour can never actually harm the body unless you are allergic to any of the flours included in the mix. Consumption of multigrain flour gives a boost to the digestive system. This flour provides a blend of nutrients in each grain and is an excellent addition to your diet.
