Hii All, again after a very long time, i came up with delicious crunchy snack recipe to share with you all.
Rice Flour 2 cups;  Green chillies  2 thai; small piece of Ginger;  few Curry leaves; few cilantro;  1 tsp cumin powder;  Chana dal 3 tbsp; Oil  to deep fry; salt to taste.

--> Soak chana dal for atleast 1 hr;
--> Make paste with rest of the ingredients with small stone grinder/mixer.
--> Take rice flour in a bowl, mix the above prepared chillie paste, and soaked chana dal, salt
--> Add 2 tbsp of warm oil. sprinkle little by little water and mix the dough altogether. don't add excess water. the finished dough should be like this :

--> Heat up oil in a pan sufficient to deep fry;
Note : Knead the dough well; or else, chekkalu may break up when u put them in oil;
--> make small dumplings, put each dumpling on ziploc, and press it thinly. instead of pressing with hand, i use
(small easy trick : i put the dumplings between 2 ziplocs and press each one with ding chick[small stone grinder] until it become thinner.)
--> Place each of the chekkalu into the heated oil and fry them on med-hi flame slowly; let them cool down; store and enjoy the taste upto 2 weeks (or even more if they still survive :) );
