23 MURUKKU/ CHAKLI

Murukku/Chakli


A crispy and yummy snack which you can finish off in no time. It does take a little while to press into proper shape and add in hot oil and deep fry. But a little practice will make it perfect and also increase your speed. This is an other recipe sent in by my aunt Gomathi.

You need:-

Rice flour - 4 cup
Urad dhal or powder - 1/2 cup
Fried gram dhal( dalia/pottu kadalai) powder - 1/2 cup
Sesame seeds - 2 tsp
Cumin seeds - 1 tbsp (optional)
Hing/asafoetida - 4- 5 pinch
Butter - 1/3 cup
Salt as needed
Water to mix
Oil for deep frying


If using urad dhal, then dry roast on low flame until you get a nice aroma. Remove and cool and powder finely. If using urad dhal powder, then dry roast that too.

Take rice flour, urad dhal powder, fried gram dhal powder, hing, sesame seeds, melted butter and mix well with your fingers. Divide into 4 portions. Mix just water just to one part of it to a soft dough. It should not be very thick nor loose. Grease your murukku press with oil and fill in with the dough. Heat oil for deep frying and start pressing your murukkus into a round shape start in th middle and press and keep turning to get into a even shaped murukku. You can press them on the back of a greased ladle or even on a plastic sheet. Gently drop in the hot oil and deep fry till golden brown. Do not let it to turn very dark.

Cool and store and enjoy it anytime you want.
