Murukku / முறுக்கு

There are different varieties of murukku. I got this recipe from a website and made some alterations. The actual recipe was a sweet one. But I made it a spicy one and my family loved this.

I have wet grinded the rice for the rice flour as I feel it gives a better taste. You may also use the rice flour and add water to get the desired consistency.

Idly Rice – 2 cups
Moong dal – ½ cup
Red chillies – 4
Pepper – 1 tsp
Salt – to taste
Butter – ½ tbsp
Oil- to fry

• Soak the rice for 4 hrs and wet grind it with red chilly and pepper (Don’t add too much water. The batter shud be little thick)
• Dry roast the moong dal till a nice flavour comes
• Add 1 cup of water and pressure cook the roasted dal
• Strain excess water from the cooked dal ad mash it well
• Mix the grinded rice flour, cooked dal, Salt and melted butter to make a thick dough (shud be little more flexible than u make for rotis)
• Put the mix in the murukku press with the desired mould (either single or 3 holes. I used the single hole)
• Press the murukku on a lightly oil coated plate and drop it carefully in the hot oil. Take it out when the spluttering of oil stops
• Cool it and store in an air tight container
