  • Now to the boiled water add rice flour slowly without any mixing.
  • Once fully added do not mix for a while and allow it to cook.
  • After some time, say 4-5 minutes, when entire flour gets covered, using a wooden spatula or spoon mix vigorously to get a dough out of it.
  • Switch off the stove and make tennis ball-sized balls out of the dough.

  • Once done, before they cool off, place the ball in chakli maker with fine holes and squeeze out noodles.
