Put all above ingredients in a bowl except oil.Add the melted butter & mix it till it forms crumbs.
Pour water little by little & make a soft dough.
Heat oil in a pan,take some dough & fill it into the murukku mould , press directly into the hot oil.
In medium high flame deep fry them till light brown colour and crisp , place it on a kitchen towel to remove excess oil if any.
