In a mixing bowl, combine rice flour, gram flour, and hot oil. Use a spoon to mix the oil with flour and then rub the flour-oil mixture with your fingertips or between your palms. Add seeds, spices, and salt. Mix well.
Add warm water gradually and knead the dough until a smooth and soft dough is formed. Rub the dough with little oil and keep it aside. Just cover it with a wet cloth, so the dough doesn’t dry out.
Divide the dough into small equal parts. We will use a chakli maker to shape chaklis. If you don’t have one, use a cookie press with a star/shaped disc or a cake icing bag with a regular nozzle. Those using the chakli maker, start with greasing the barrel with a little oil.
Take a part of the dough and place it inside the chakli maker. Press the chakli maker to make swirls on a parchment paper. I prefer to add the parchment paper directly inside the air fryer. If your air-fryer has racks, then add the chaklis directly on the racks.
Preheat the air fryer at 350F for 10-minutes. Now brush or spray the chaklis with oil and place them in the air fryer basket.
Air Fry these chaklis at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 12- to 15-minutes. Do not forget to turn the chaklis half way through and brush them with little more oil. Based on the thickness of the chaklis, they will take a max of 15-minutes to cook perfectly.
Follow the same process to make more chaklis from the remaining dough.
Allow the chaklis to cool down.
Serve the air fryer chaklis with tea or coffee.
