Rice flour-2 cups
(I used the store bought)
Pottukadalai / Putnala Pappu /Roasted gram dal powder-1/2 cup
Red chilly powder-1/2tsp
Water-around 1 & 1/4 cup
Oil-to deep fry
Take a bowl add rice flour,pottukadalai,salt,butter,chilly powder ,jeera & hing.
Pour water little by little & make a soft dough.
Heat oil in a pan,fill the dough into the murukku press.
Press them directly into the hot oil,in medium high flame fry till crisp & light golden brown on all sides.
Remove it on a kitchen paper for excess oil to get absorbed.
Cool completely & store it in a air tight container.
a) Do not add too much butter,otherwise your murukku will crumble while frying.It will consume more oil too.Even hot oil can be replaced for butter.
b) Add water little by little to get the right consistency.
c) Instead of jeera you can also add ajwain.
d) If you like garlic taste,add grated garlic to the dough.
