It is quite easy and takes less than an hour to prepare. It stays crispy and can be stored for a month. Without any further delay let us to go straight to the recipe.
Preparation time : 15 minutes
Cooking time : 20 minutes
Yields : 20 - 25
For this murukku you need
- 2 cups of rice flour
- 4 tbsp. of roasted urad dal flour
- 1 tbsp. of butter
- 1 tbsp. of white sesame seeds
In a wide bowl mix the rice flour, urad dal flour, sesame seeds, butter until it is crumbly. Now add water little by little and knead it to a soft , non sticky dough.Divide the dough into five or six lumps.
Take the murukku press and place a lump of dough into it. Squeeze the dough out in a circular fashion. I squeezed them at the back of a laddle.
Heat oil in a kadai, drop the shaped murukku's and fry it until golden brown in medium flame .Flip it gently to make sure it gets cooked well on both sides.
Remove and drain it in a paper towel.
Allow it to cool and store it in a airtight container.
For urad dal flour - Heat a pan and dry roast the dal until it turns, light golden in colour.Allow it to cool and grind into a fine powder.
The murukku should be fried in medium flame, test the oil by dropping a tiny ball from the dough .It should sizzle and rise to the top.
Depending upon the size of the pan, drop in the shapped murruku's.
To avoid the dough getting dried, cover it with a wet cloth.
