Mundiri Murukku /Cashew Murukku

Coming to day2 of blogging marathon #93,themed under Diwali sweet and savories is a crunchy murukku.
This is a super crunchy murukku with cashew and roasted gram powder.I tried this murukku only with cashew powder and rice flour couple of times.It came out good and not as crunchy as expected.Then I used some roasted gram dhal powder along with cashews and the result was amazing and the murukku came out so cruchy and stayed crunchy for longer time.

Cant ask more, just love to munch some anytime of the day with a cup of coffee or tea, excellent murukku there.

Wow! That is an innovative recipe, Nalini. I have never tried adding cashew powder and roasted gram powder in murukku.

Adding cashew must give the murukku a wonderful taste. If I have these murukku, I will be really happy with a book in my hand to enjoy it thoroughly.

Oh fantastic, I am surely going to make this Nalini, wonderful snack!

oooh I would love to munch on this crispy crunchy snack though cashews I have an allergy to so I will use peanuts :)

It is an interesting twist to chaklis, Nalini. Love the coconut shell prop.

Wow never heard of cashew in a Chakli dough. This is new and very interesting. Love the way you have presented this.
