Preparation Time : 20 mins
Cooking Time : 3 to 4 mins per batch
Makes : 10 muruku
Rice Flour - 1 cup
Urad Dal Flour - 3 tblspn ( Click here for recipe )
Butter - 2 tblspn
Asafoetida / Hing / Kaya Podi - 1/2 tsp
Cumin Seeds / Jeerakam - 1 tsp
Salt to taste
Water as needed
Take rice flour, urad dal flour in a bowl and mix well.
Add in butter and use your hands to crumble it.
Add in salt, jeera, asafoetida and mix well. Add water slowly and knead into a soft dough.
I line a plate with foil, so it makes easier to remove it out.
Now take a portion of dough and put it into thenkuzhal press and make muruku out of it.
Heat oil for frying and take the muruku from the foil and fry the muruku in hot oil. Once the shh stops from the oil, remove the muruku and drain in paper towel.
1) While you press the muruku, if you find it cracking, then add more water to the dough.
2) Fry muruku in hot oil, if you add it to cold oil, then muruku wont cook properly and it will drink more oil.
3) You can add sesame seeds too.
4) Cover the dough with wet cloth as it dries soon.
