Murukku is typically made from a mixture of urad and rice flour, salt, and flavourings such as chilli, asafoetida, ajawain, or cumin. As Diwali is coming nearer everybody is busy planning what are the sweets and savouries that could be made. Here is another Diwali recipe of Hand Made Murukku, which is an art by itself. I always admire my mom for her patience during the preparation of Hand Made Murukku.
  Rice flour 3 Cup (48 tbs)
  Black gram flour 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  Butter 5 1⁄2 Tablespoon, heated
  Cumin seeds 1 Tablespoon
  Salt To Taste
  Water 100 Milliliter (As required)
  Oil 2 Cup (32 tbs) (For deep frying)

Combine rice flour and urad dal flour , add salt, cumin seeds and mix it together.
Add the melted butter and oil, add water little by little and make a soft dough (watch out it should not be watery ).
Take a small lemon size dough and use your index and thumb fingers and sprial in circular motion. (like a sprial rope) (Practice makes it easier). Make this murukku on paper towel.
Heat enough oil for deep frying in a frying pan (medium heat). Place carefullly the murukku in the oil and deep fry both the sides and enjoy your fruit of hardwork.
Storage: Can keep this for more than 15 days. Taste so better.

I love kai murukku. But, i only made ordinary butter murukku(check in my site) and thought kai murukku is hard to get that spiral and the original buttery taste. After reading your's, i think i should try out.

I am going to try out this recipe, it looks really good, just need the patience for it. I tried Maida chakli, its crispy but feel the taste of oil even though I strained it well and absorbed on tissue paper.
