Wheat Flour Murukku / Atta Murukku / Gothumai Mavu Murukku / Atta Chakli - Diwali Recipes


I was thinking quite a while for a murukku recipe to try. Maida murukku and Butter muruku was on my mind. I thought of trying those, there comes raji from raks kitchen with her post, wheat flour muruku. Both the muruku flewed away and i decided to try this out and it was a huge hit. It was crispy and just melts away in your mouth.


I added some piping hot oil to the dough and i am telling you, please don't skip that step. Because it makes the murukku melt in mouth. So make this murukku this diwali and you will be glad that you did it..And not to worry i will post maida murukku and butter murukku recipe soon..



Preparation Time : 30 mins
Cooking Time : 2 to 3 mins per batch
Makes - 8 large murukku or 12 to 15 small murukku
Recipe Source: Raks Kitchen

Ingredients:

Wheat Flour / Atta - 1 cup
Chilli Powder - 1 tblspn
Salt to taste
Asafoetida / Hing / Kaya Podi - 1/2 tsp
Cumin Seeds / Jeerakam - 1 tsp
Oil - 1.5 tblspn + for deep frying
Water - around 1/2 cup adjust 

Method:

Take a colander and line it with a clean cloth. Tip the wheat flour into it, bundle it up and place it over a pot with water. Cover the colander too. Steam this for 15 mins. You can steam it in idli cooker too.

Once it is steamed, remove it from heat and open it up. It should have small lumps. but the flour should be dry not wet.

Allow it too cool a little. Now break them up and sieve it.

Now take the sifted flour in a bowl. Add in salt, chilli powder, asafoetida, cumin seeds and mix well.

Add in water and mix to form a dough, once it is about to form into a dough, heat 1.5 tblspn of oil and pour the hot oil over the flour mix.

Mix well to form into a dough. The dough should be soft.

Now take your murukku press and put your favorite achu inside it. 

Put a portion of dough in it and press to form murukku. You can easily make muruku in the back side of a slotted spoon, so you can easily drop it in oil.

Heat oil for frying. Once it is hot, drop in oil and fry till the shh stops from the oil.

Drain in a paper towel and allow it to cool down, as it cools it will turn crispy.

Serve.

  1. Hi Aarthi

    I have been following your Blog for sometime now, It is very nice. I have a question. Whenever I make any kind of Murukku I find it little difficult to press the Murukku maker. What you think is the problem? The maker or Dough Consistency or my arm power? But the Murukku comes out fine and tasty. It is the pressing of murukku terrifying me. pls advise.
