Traditionally, chakri are savory wheels made from extruded rice and chickpea flour dough that's spiraled, then fried, but Trader Joe's is offering a different experience with its Spicy Chakri Mix. This mix made with chickpea and rice flour features thin pieces that are formed into spiny designs and fried, so they're different in shape but full of all the same crunch as ever. The mix also includes fried curry leaves and peanuts, all of which are coated in a hot seasoning.
Trader Joe's notes, " In parts of India, there are entire stores devoted to snack mixes known as namkeen, which often contain chakri. After experiencing namkeen and specifically chakri for ourselves in India, we decided to engage our top supplier of Indian meals to create a special version."
