Crunchy Munchy goodness.....

So how was your weekend? Hope you all are enjoying a ton!! We had a good one too. Heres another yummy crunchy treat.  Murukku is a very popular South Indian snack. Here is a very easy and tasty recipe  to make crispy and crunchy murukkus. Enjoy it with a cup of coffee.....  I bet you cant eat just one!!

Rice flour – 4 cups
Pottu Kadalai /Roasted Gram Dal/ Fried Gram Dal – 1 cup
Melted Butter  – 2 tbsp
Cumin seeds- 2 tbsp
Sesame seeds- 2 tbsp
Asafoetida a pinch
Salt to taste


  • In a blender, smoothly powder the fried gram dal.
  •  In a mixing bowl mix all the ingredients together by adding enough water to make a tight dough, dont use too much water.
  • Heat enough oil to deep fry, once it is hot, stuff the dough in the murukku press and press it into the oil directly.
  • Deep fry both sides until golden brown. Drain on a paper towel , cool and store in a air tight container. It keeps well for weeks.
