Murukku - II

This is the usual simple murukku recipe made for years. I remember the days when my mom and grandma used to prepare this for diwali and we will always help them in making and eating :-) We used to pack the Diwali sweets to all our relatives in packets.. and compare the murukkus we got from them and announcing the winner :-)

Here is the standard recipe..


Rice flour
2 cups
Urid dhal flour
¼ cups
11/2 tbsp
1 tsp
Sesame seeds
1 tsp (optional)
¼ tsp
As required
To deep dry


To make the urid dhal flour, dry roast the urid dhal till you get the nice aroma. Allow it to cool a little and grind it to fine powder.

Mix all the ingredients together with required water to make a smooth and flexible dough.

Heat enough oil in kadai to deep fry.

Fill the dough in the murukku press with the desired hole shape.

You can either press the murukku directly over oil or on greased laddles and drop it into the oil carefully.

Cook both the sides and take them out when the spluttering of oil stops. Drain in kitchen towel to remove any excess oil.

Allow it to cool and store in air tight container.


You can optionally add red chilli powder or green chilli paste to make it little spicy.
