For the final day of BM#23 I made spicy version of murukku with the cooked urad dhal and rice flour.I have already posted the Diwali Muruku or Thenkuzhal and Paasiparuppu(moong dhal) murukku .But this is a slightly spicy version of murruku and my mom learnt it from her neighbor.Here goes the recipe for crunchy murukku..........
|Rice flour/arisi maavu||2cups|
|Whole urad dhal/ullutham paruppu||1/2cup|
|Chilly powder/milagai podi||1tsp|
Pressure cook the urad dhal for 2-3 whistles with 11/2ups of water.Blend the cooked urad dhal in a blender to a fine paste and keep aside.
Take a wide mouth bowl and add rice flour,ground urad dhal,butter,chilly powder,salt,asafoetida,cumin seeds.Mix it well and sprinkle water little by little and make a soft dough.
- The flour doesn't need of much water as the urad dhal has moisture in it.I used only 3tbs of water.
- Butter can be substituted with 3tbs of hot oil.
- Instead of cumin seeds,carom seeds or sesame seeds can be used.
- Star shaped blade can be used.
