Diwali is round the corner and I could see loads of sweets and savouries in blogosphere and I'm enjoying the virtual treat of it.Though we don't celebrate it on seeing all delicacies for it I'm more tempted to do try some and as a blogger I tried few also.Yesterday for after school snack I tried this murukku/chakli and it was so tasty to munch with tea.Do try this easy snack for festival or day to day and relish it.Preparation time: 10 mins
cooking time: under 30 mins:

- Red chilly powder- 1 tsp
- jeera seeds-1\2 tsp
