Acchu Murukku also known as Achappam or Rose cookie is a mild sweet Murukku, normally prepared during Christmas time.


  • 1 cup Rice flour

  • 1/4 cup Maida

  • 1/2 cup Powdered Sugar

  • 1 cup Coconut Milk

  • 1 tsp Til seeds (Ellu) (Optional)

  • Salt – a pinch

  • Oil – for deep frying


  • Sieve both rice flour and maida. Put it in a bowl. Add powdered sugar, salt and til seeds. Mix well.
  • Add coconut milk and make a batter. If required you can add little water. The batter should be like dosa batter consistency. Ensure that the batter should not be too thick or too thin.
  • Heat oil in a kadai.
  • Place the mold in the hot oil for a minute. Take out the mold and dip half of the mold into the batter and again put the mold in the hot oil.
  • After few minutes, if you shake the mold the murukku will come out from the mold or using a fork just lift it from the mold and fry till it is crisp. Finish all the batter like this.
  • Note:
  • Never dip the mold fully into the batter. Care should be taken to immerse only half of the heated mold into the flour batter and then dip this into the hot oil. Then easily the flour will drop into the hot oil.
