21 THENKUZHAL

Thenkuzhal



A Diwali savoury snack which you will all love.

Rice flour - 2 cups
Urad dhal - 1/4 cup( roasted and powdered)
Gram flour/kadalai maavu/senaga pindi - 1/4 cup
Salt as need
Cumin seeds - 1 - 2 tsp
Sesame seeds - 1 - 2 tsp
Hing/Asafoetida - 2 pinch
Butter - 1 tbsp(melted)
Hot oil - 1/2 ladle

Oil for deep frying.


Roast urad dhal till nice aroma...cool and powder. If using Urad flour, then roast the powder till you get nice aroma.
In a bowl combine rice flour, urad flour, gram flour. To it add salt, cumin seeds, sesame seeds, hing and melted butter and hot oil( which you have kept for frying ). Combine and blend well. Add water slowly and make a sift dough like consistency. Use murukku press and insert proper disk( with one or 3 holed ones). Spread few drops of oil inside the press and fill in some mix. Heat oil and reduce to medium flame. Press and turn till you fill a part of the kadai/pan. Wait for few seconds and then turn only touch/move the murukku. Cook one side down and turn slowly to cook the other side. Fry till nice brown. Remove and cool Store in a air tight container and enjoy your savoury snack.

You can make this with just rice and urad flour( then use 1/2 cup not just 1/4 cup as the ratio to rice should be 4:1 ), but adding gram flour gives a non breaking murukkus and will also be crispy.
