Of all the murukkus i used to love this murukku and mom used to buy that for me. I took this recipe from my favourite book Kanta mani Vantalu. My kids too love to eat murukku. As now i am at home with kids as they are having Spring break i had some time today, so made these. These will last for few days not to worry about what snacks to pack for school next week. Here is the recipe:-
Besan/Sangapindi 2 cups
Rice flour/Biyam pindi 1 cup
Seasame seeds 1 tbsp
Cummin powder 1 tsp
Hing a pinch
Ghee 4 tbsp
Oil for deep frying
Salt to taste
Red chilly whole 4
Grind garlic and red chilly with water. Just make a coarse paste.
Mix all the dry ingredients.
Add ghee, garlic and red chilly paste.
Add enough warm water and make a hard dough.
I used 3 eyed holes in the murukku maker.
Grease the murukku maker and fill it with the dough.
Heat oil. Press small batches on a plate like the below pic and slowly leave them in the hot oil.
Fry until the bubbles subsides and take them out on a tissue.
Once cool store them in a air tight container.
