Tricolour Champakali Recipe

Ingredients for Tricolour Champakali Recipe: 

Refined flour - 2 cups
Black pepper powder - 1/2 tsp
Green color - few drops
Red color - few drops
Ghee or oil - 4 tbsp
Ghee or oil - for frying
Salt, as required

Method for Tricolour Champakali Recipe:

In a mixing bowl, add oil or ghee, salt, black pepper powder to the flour well.

Divide this flour into three parts and place each part in separate bowl.

In one such bowl add few drops of green color and with enough water to knead it into firm dough. Similarly to the other bowl add few drops of red color and mix. With enough water knead to a firm dough. Meanwhile to the third bowl do not add anything and just with enough water knead it to a firm dough.

Divide each dough into 20 portions.

Place 1 out of each portion (3 separate colour dough portions) side by side. Gently press them to together to form one portion. Roll it to a puri.

Once done cut the middle of the puri into thin strips (take care to make strips only in the middle).

Now twist the puri to join ends.

Do the same with all the portions.

Deep fry on medium heat till crisp and done. 


  1. Very easy and crispy.

  2. Not bad at all. But can't be this made with wheat flor?

  3. Hello Pravin Gangurde,

    I can understand your health concerns, but this particular dish needs a crispiness, for which we require a light flour. Refined flour works really well in this recipe. You may not attain the same results with wheat flour.

    But since we don't make this every single day, I am sure refined flour some day or the other is okay. And trust me, most of the Diwali savouries are cooked in refined flour.
