34 RAGI KAI/SUTTU MURUKKU

Ragi Kai/Suttu Murukku


Ragi Flour( Finger Millet)- 1 cup
Roasted Urad dhal powder - 1/4 cup
Rice Flour- 4 tbsp
Melted butter - 1/2 stick
Onion - 1
Red chillies - 2
Cumin seeds - 1 tsp
Salt as needed
Oil for deep frying

Grind onion, cumin seeds and red chillies to a fine paste. Strain and save the water.


In a mixing bowl take all the flours, to it add salt, melted butter and the saved water. Prepare a thick dough like consistency. Apply some oil in your hands and take a small lemon sized ball of dough and using your fingers roll and twist(just like a rope) continously and form into circles. When done press the edge to seal. Carefully remove and add in hot oil and deep fry.


Make sure all the powders are very fine so it will easily to twist and roll.

My mom,grandma and aunt make one of the best suttu murukku with rice flour. For a change they tried out this kai murukku with ragi flour which came out too good and also tasted great.
