Thenkuzhal/Murukku

This post has been lying in my draft since Diwali and finally posted it today.Murukku is a traditional snack which prepared for festival especially Diwali.There are lot of variants in the murukku recipe and this is my mom's recipe,uses home made rice flour. I used the store bought rice flour and here is the recipe for crunchy and yummy murukku....



Ingredients

IngredientQuantity
Rice flour 4cups
Urad dhal1cup
Roasted gram dhal(pottukadalai)1/4cup
Cumin seeds1tbs
Butter 5tbs
Asafoetida 1/4tsp
Salt to taste
Oil for frying

Method


                 Dry roast the urad dhal to a nice golden brown color and powder it in the blender and sieve it(used store bought urad flour and roasted it),powder the pottukadali and sieve it.
Take a large mixing bowl and mix rice flour,urad flour,roasted gram dhal flour,cumin seeds,salt and butter.Make a smooth  and stiff dough with water.
Heat the pan with oil and fill the murukku press with the prepared dough using the round eyed disc.Squeeze it on a ladle or small plates.
Drop it carefully in the oil once the oil becomes hot enough.Cook both the sides till the sizzling sound stops and drain it on a paper towel.
Once it becomes cool store it in an air tight container.

  • Instead of cumin seeds,sesame seeds can be used.
  • If you are making large quantities make the dough in batches otherwise the color may turn dark.
  • While dropping the murukku the oil should be hot,then reduce the temperature to medium.
