Murukku (version-2)/Chakli

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 maavu2cups
Whole urad dhal/ullutham paruppu1/2cup
Chilly powder/milagai podi1tsp
Cumin seeds/jeeragam 1tsp
Asafoetida 1/8tsp
Saltto taste
Oilfor frying


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.
Mean while heat a pan with oil,fill the murruku press with the prepared dough using the 3 eyed blade and squeeze it in the oil directly or in a small plates and drop it in the oil.Fry it in a medium till it becomes crisp and golden.Drain it on a paper towel and let it cool.
After cooling store it in a air tight container.


  • 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.
