Palak Chakli | Air Fryer Spinach Chakli

How to Make Chakli in an Air Fryer

Hello Foodies,

          Crunchy chakli with piping hot Masala Chai(Chai Tea Latte), perfect for an evening snack. The more crispy, tasty, and delicious it looks, even it easier to make. Try our Crunchiest Spinach Bhajani Chakli and I am sure you will love it.

           Palak chaklis get their distinct green color from the spinach that's added to the mixture. So since Chakali is our all-time favorite snack, it definitely means that they have to be good. Indian celebrations are incomplete without some indulgent delicacies, so today I have come up with a healthy snack, Air Fryer Palak Chakli.  

Video Recipe:

            Fresh bunches of spinach leaves are getting in a large quantity these days easily in the market. So I have used a spinach puree in the chakli dough. That puree gives a vibrant and pretty color and awesome flavor to the Palak Chakli. In addition to this, these chaklis are Air fried instead of deep-frying. 

We love these Air Fryer Palak Chaklis, because-

  • It’s a Vegan, Gluten-free, and Vegetarian snack.
  • Non-deep fried snack
  • Air Fryer Snack
  • Healthy and Nutritious Recipe
  • Festive Friendly
