My first younger sister buys a packet of the best coconut milk whenever she come to nagercoil from madurai. I would say it is the best murukku in the world, It is sweet and very tasty. I always wanted to imitate the recipe, hence i made this coconut milk murukku. But it was not a success, i couldn't get the taste of it. From that day onward i was searching for a diff recipe. Finally this recipe is a hit.
When i made this murukku and tasted it, it was very close to that murukku with a lovely sweet taste and a little coconut milk flavour and aroma. Loved it. So give this a try and let me know how it turned it..
