Murukku using rice flour

Murukku can never be enuf for anyone... it just tastes too good that there are no words for it and homemade murukku are even more special. I know we get a lot of store bought versions here but it never tastes the same as homemade. They are so fresh and crispy and look so inviting. I made some yesterday and I have not much left today. In fact had some guests too...

This is what u'll need....

Rice Flour - 1 cup
Roasted urad dal powder - 1 tspn
Chutney dal powder/Pottu kadalai powder - 2 tbspn
Oil /Melted Butter - 2 tbspn
Black sesame seeds - 1 tbspn
Oil - for frying
Salt to taste

Here is the stir....
  • Measure in rice flour, chutney dal powder and urad dal powder into a bowl
  • Wash and  clean sesame seeds. Add it to the flour
  • Add melted ghee or oil to the bowl
  • Add salt to taste
  • Use little water to make a soft dough
  • Heat oil in a skillet to medium high
  • Put some dough into murukku machine and squeeze in circles to form the shape
  • Slowly put them in oil and fry on both sides till golden brown and crispy
  • Remove and drain on paper towel
  • Store in an airtight container and it stays good for quite some days
  • Add chilli powder if you want to but we prefer it this way
  • Fry on medium hot oil to maintain colour and crispness
  • Store them only after they are completely cool
