Mix it well. Then add water little by little and make a soft pliable dough.Heat oil in a Kadai. Take small quantity of dough and put it in the Murukku Press with “three stars” plate and squeeze it in circular motion directly to the hot oil. Allow to fry for one or two minutes and then turn it gently, so that it will not break in the oil. Fry till it becomes crispy. Since the colour of the Murukku is dark, you cannot check it by seeding the colour whether it is fried or not. Hence fry it till the sizzling sound of the hot oil reduced to minimum.
Wow. I want to try this.
Tried it & came out v tasty. Thanks for the excellent recipe
Thank you Yamini for your feed back.
I tried today and received appreciations from my Mother-in-law 🙂 But only thing is it did not come as a complete muruku but soft and easily broken. Thanks for the receipe
I think you have added more water in the dough. If the dough is slightly stiff, then it will come perfect, crispy murukku.
