I have thought that making muruku is one of the hard job I can imagine..I know many of you have that experience..
But Amma has simplified this process for you..She make the perfect muruku with no effort..Actually in our first batch of muruku making, she took rice and ground it in a grinder and made into a smooth paste..
But in our second batch we took rice flour and mixed it with powdered roasted channa dal flour and made muruku..And I am telling this is more tasty and easier than the first one..
The one important thing you should remember while doing muruku is the propotions..We used the traditional muruku achu for making this,but I think you can make it in piping bag with star tip or any of your favotite tip..
So I hope everyone love this recipe and here you go for the step by step recipe with pictures and well as I have a video for you..

Roasted Channa Dal / Pori Kaladai / Pottu Kadalai-2 ½ cup powdered
