Mullu Murukku

Jayashree's picture
This mullu murukku is an easy snack and the same type is available in Indian grocery stores in US. Try it, you will stop buying the one in Indian stores.
Ingredients
  Rice flour 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Melted butter 3 Tablespoon
  Salt 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Chilli powder 3⁄4 Teaspoon
  Sesame seeds 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Jeera 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Asafoetida 1 Pinch
  Water 50 Milliliter
  Oil 2 Tablespoon (for frying)
Directions

* To the rice flour add melted butter, salt, chilli powder, asafoetida powder, seasame seeds, jeera ( cumin ) and mix all.

* Now add water little by little and mix as chapatti or kolukattai maav.

* Do not add much water since if you add more water the murukku will not be crisp and will not turn out properly. So mix correctly.

* Now heat oil in a heavy bottomed pan and when it is hot you can do murukkus.

* Method for pressing: Put the maava in murukku kulal and put and star shaped auchu in it. Now take a round flat karandi and turn it upside down and press the murukku in that karandi in the shpae as shown in the picture and put the murukku carefully in oil. Always keep the flame is medium high and take the murukku out after it is golden brown in colour. Do the same for all.

* That's it..... mullu murukku is ready.
Storage tips:
Store in an air tight container. Will be good for a month.
