This is one recipe which i came across when i was browsing through my reader. It impressed me so much and i made it instantly..

This murukku is so easy to make but extremely crunchy. Loved it so much. You can make it whatever shape you like too, using different press.

  1. Hi aarthi is toasted gram dal n daliya same ???

  2. Your recipes are great. . Love trying all of them

  3. Love your recipes.......would prefer healthier versions...... Can I bake these ?

  4. @ritui am not so sure..because it may turn brittle

  5. Hi Could you please tell me an alternative to the press? I have no chance of getting it where i live and do not know anyone who could get it for me.

    What is asafoetida?

    Love your recipes, especially your pictorials. .. have a great day! :)

  6. @AnonymousSorry, there is no alternative, but i think you can try using piping bag. asafoetida is hing a pungent indian spice

  7. MY murukku kept breaking away. :( it tasted fine and was crunchy but broke away.

  8. @Sara MJyour dough may be either too dry or too wet

  9. Hi, I love trying ur recipe.
    When I tried this oats murukku first time it came out just perfect. Very crispy..it was the best chakli..
    Today I tried it again,wanted in bulk so I took thrice the qty mentioned. But it didn't come out very crispy. Half of it turned crispy n some of it was soft from inside. What could have gone wrong.. pls advise.

  10. @Firdous Dingankari think u must have messed with the measurements
